That same night on Friday will be the finale of the 10th Annual North Texas Night Series and Round 2 of the Big Texas Summer Series. Then on Saturday (June 6th) the Pro's hit the track. The gates will open on Saturday at 7:00am with the Pit Party starting at 9:00am. The AMA Pro's first practice will be at 8:30am. Once practice and qualifying are complete, opening ceremonies will start at 12:30pm with the first moto's beginning at 1:00pm. Returning in 2009 will be the addition of the Women's Pro. The amateurs will complete the weekend on the same national track on Sunday, June 7th for the AMA Amateur Day.
