Blountville, Tenn. - Riders throughout the southeast will continue a tradition this weekend (Nov 25-26) as they pack up the leftover turkey and head out to the opening event of the 2011-2012 FMF INDOOR MX WINTER Series. The WNC Ag Center in Fletcher (Asheville), NC is host to this weekend’s event which will feature 34 classes of riders on bikes and ATVs.
Since 1992 this event has featured bar-to-bar racing between some of the nation’s up and coming pros as well as fast amateur riders. The event is arenacross racing in tight quarters which makes for a super exciting show.
Defending pro champion Robbie Horton will be looking for podium finishes both days in order to retain his number one plates in both the 250 Pro and 450 Pro classes. Horton is considered an indoor motocross specialist and is always a threat to win. The Augusta, GA rider doesn’t race very much outdoors during the summer months, concentrating only on sharpening his indoor skills.
This season opener is always packed with talent in the pro classes and it is a big accomplishment to make the “Main Event”. Last year Tyler Bright won the 250 class on Friday night and the 450 class on Saturday. Taylor Futrell won the 450 class on Friday and Horton won the 250 class on Saturday.
It will be two full days of racing with a full amateur and pro program each day. Practice is at 12:00 noon and the main events are at 6:30pm both days. NO MEMBERSHIP is required.
