Dirt to fly as arenacross action returns

Heritage Park will be a noisy and dirty place this weekend as the first rounds of the Canadian Arenacross Championship take place.

The 2013-14 Kawasaki Canadian Arenacross Championship series gets rolling this weekend, with two days of action at Chilliwack’s Heritage Park.

The series organizers at Future West Promotions are pulling out all the stops to make this the most successful series yet.

Pros will be aiming for a share of a large purse and amateurs will be gunning for a slew of prizes.

A Dirt Wurx designed and built track will sprawl over the two dirt floors at Heritage Park, and two exhibition halls will be used for pits and a brand new live-entertainment zone.

Kawasaki has come on board as a title sponsor.

Reigning Arenacross champ Spencer Knowles (GA Checkpoint Yamaha) will try to fend off Brock Hoyer (Spectra Powersports Yamaha) and Ryan Lockhart (Maple Ridge Kawasaki), two riders who are more than cable of knocking him off.

A powerhouse field also includes Jeremy Medaglia (Cycle North Honda) and Tyler Medaglia (Maple Ridge KTM).

American representation includes Sean Hamblin,  Ryan Abrigo, Ross Johnson and Jake Anstett.

Tickets for rounds one and two, on Friday and Saturday, are available at the door.

Doors open at 6 p.m. with live music, an autograph session and access to the live entertainment zone. Racing starts at 7 p.m..

Live commentary will be provided by BC Moto Show radio talk show host Brent Worrall, along with John Wren.
