The combination of a motorcycle/auto complex, already hosting an established amateur supermoto race scene, expects this to be one of the highest-attended events of the season.

Hart has been riding dirt bikes since the age of four. He was the first motocross rider to do a back flip during extreme competition. He stared in the fifth season of The Surreal Life on VH1 and also the reality show "Inked," shown on the A&E cable network.
