The talk in Reading was the preparation for the U.S. Open of Arenacross that will award the Champion…$50,000.00!

“My Hondas are working great and I really like the GPS team I am riding for,” said Ripple. “The idea is stay out of trouble each week so we can go into the U.S. Open of Arenacross healthy and prepared.”

Babbitt’s team manager Denny Bartz, “We want points now. The idea is go into the U.S. Open of Arenacross with the BooKoo Arenacross Championship already in our pockets. That will allow Darcy to race even harder and not worry about points.”

Youth and Amateur riders from across the country are attempting to qualify for the U.S. Open of Arenacross Champion title by finishing in the top two position in their respective classes at each of the 9-events leading up to the U.S. Open of Arenacross. More than 400 riders will be racing for national honors on Sunday.
