High intensity, bar-to-bar dirt-bike racing at its finest is returning to Council Bluffs as the 2011 AMA Arenacross Series brings some heat during the winter with its annual visit to the Mid-America Center for two nights of action on Friday, March 18 Saturday, March 19.

Hundreds of the best Arenacross riders from around the globe will compete for their chance to be one of just 32 riders to make a pair of 16-rider main events in the AMA Arenacross and AMA Arenacross Lites classes. The national series travels throughout the country to several of the most renowned arenas in the United States, bringing in 150 truckloads of dirt to sculpt a man made dirt battleground. Technical obstacles, close competition and impressive airtime combine to create one of the most unique spectacles in the sporting world.

Last season in Council Bluffs, it was a dominant weekend for the Babbitt’s Monster Energy/TiLube Kawasaki team as both Demuth and his teammate Tyler Bowers were able to capture the overall wins during two evenings of racing. Bowers’ win was his series-leading ninth of 2010 while Demuth’s fifth win helped gain valuable ground in the championship.

The AMA Arenacross Series is fun for the whole family! The always popular track walk and post-race autograph session gives an opportunity for fans of all ages to get up close and personal with the stars of Arenacross and get the a coveted autograph from some of the best riders in the world.
