Grand Rapids has been one of the longest running stops of AMSOIL Arenacross for many years and this season will continue that spectacular legacy. Last season, two night’s of action featured dramatic showdowns between the sport’s biggest names, leaving Grand Rapids fans eagerly awaiting the return of the high-octane, bar-to-bar competition that has become the trademark of this truly unique spectacle. Arenacross is affordable fun for the whole family, with the rare chance to meet the riders at the Rider Autograph Session and feel the dirt at the hugely-popular Track Party! Plus, everyone in attendance will have the chance to meet and support Grand Rapids’ own Miss Arenacross Lindsey Scheltema as she leads the way in generating the excitement for the competition each night!
Tickets available for purchase now at the Van Andel Arena Box Office, all Ticketmaster outlets, online at Ticketmaster.com, or charge by phone at (800) 745-3000.
With reigning back-to-back champion Tyler Bowers leading the way in search of his third straight title, veteran stalwarts like Jeff Gibson, Kelly Smith, and Zach Ames await their opportunity to end Bowers’ reign. With one of the most talented field of riders to ever line up on a starting gate, the competition is slated to be deeper than ever.
The Van Andel Arena floor will be covered in 170 truckloads of soil, giving way to a sculpted, man-made dirt battleground featuring air-inducing jumps and logic-defying obstacles. Hundreds of riders from around the country will vie for their chance to be one of just 32 riders who qualify for the pair of 16-rider Main Events in the Arenacross Class and Arenacross Lites Class.
