Arenacross action returns for final rounds

Nearly 300 riders will compete over two evenings at Chilliwack's Heritage Park, striving to be the 2015 Arenacross champ.

The Future West Canadian Arenacross Championship series returns to Chilliwack’s Heritage Park this weekend for its final rounds.

Racing on Friday and Saturday night features participants from four years old to over 30 at all skill levels.

Rounds five and six were held in Chilliwack last weekend, with 26 pro riders joined by 250+ amateurs.

This weekend’s event sees all of them vying for the title of Canadian Arenacross champ.

Included is the popular ‘Dash for Cash,’ where riders race in a round robin elimination until two remain. The winner of last weekend’s Dash for Cash pocketed $1,600.

Saturday night is highlighted by a halftime show featuring back-flip stunt riders Kris Garwasiuk and Kyle Demelo from Global FMX.

The doors open at 6 p.m. both nights with racing starting at 7. Tickets are available at the door.
