This weekend, Qwest Field will host thousands of fans, off-road motorcycles and tons of dirt piled on the playing surface as part of the AMA Supercross FIM World Championship racing series. Supercross racing takes place on artificially-made dirt tracks that consist of steep jumps and obstacles.
Ryan Villopoto, a local Poulsbo resident, currently holds the lead in the standings and is hoping to extend that lead with a hometown race in Seattle. Door open at 12:30 on April 16, 2011, with practice and qualifying rounds throughout the afternoon. The main event begins at 7:00PM. Tickets information is available at supercrossonline.com.
