Quotes & Highlights
Be prepared for an exciting and action-packed time at the 39th Annual Speedway Derby. Along with the energy-charged crowd, the air is filled with excitement, bikes revving in the background as the announcer calls out the colorful riders’ names.

The bikes are very specialized and run on methanol going from 0 to 60 in under 3 seconds with no brakes. Short 4 and 5 lap heats build up to a mind-blowing main event that pits the best against each other for an all-or-nothing blow-out heat.
There are also added attractions such as freestyle motocross jumpers, sidecars, chopper races and other fun stuff along with the speedway racing.
