America has always been the most extreme country, from the Boston Tea Punchings to having the first man swear on the moon. We hold this shredding guitar solo to be self-evident with today’s GrouponLive deal: for $16, you get two general-admission tickets to the first round of the American Arenacross Championship Series tour, presented by Motorhead Events at Boone County Fairgrounds (up to a $32 value). Doors open at 5:30 p.m. each night. Choose between the following shows:

- Saturday, December 10, at 7:30 p.m.<p>
The cyclists of the American Arenacross tour transform crowds into an adrenaline-driven swarm of gasps and cheers with supersonic, gravity-defying competitions. During three-hours of racing, professional riders compete wheel-to-wheel across an arena floor peppered with ceiling-scraping jumps, sharp turns, and obnoxiously long stoplights. Bikers warm up audience applause engines aboard 50cc scramblers before professional riders coast onto the track atop 450cc MX bikes. Mixed in among qualifying and main events, an FMX freestyle jump-off pits high flyers against each other as they perform new tricks and recite cherished haikus more than 60 feet in the air. As an added bonus, Saturday’s event includes a complimentary track party from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. for all guests with a ticket.
