The Arctic Cat Nitro Arenacross Tour
Lasting from November through January, the Arctic Cat Nitro Arenacross Tour barrels back on to dirt tracks as riders jockey for points and attempt to climb the standings. The three-month, multi-state tour makes its fifth stop at the Ozark Empire Fairgrounds shortly after the New Year begins, then skids into Lebanon’s Cowan Civic Center for its seventh stop later in the month.
At each Nitro Arenacross event, riders zip around a track riddled with jumps that can send them flying as high as 60 feet into the air. Different competitive classes also showcase the skills of riders from various age groups: kids zip around the track on 50cc bikes, and professionals harness the power of fire-breathing 450cc MX bikes that would have no problem fitting in on the AMA Supercross Circuit or at a dragon’s birthday party. Last season, Addison Emory IV ran away from the competition in the 450cc points standings, finishing the year nearly 50 points ahead of second-place Cody Agler and nearly 100 points ahead of third-place Mitch Gaylord.
