Racing fans who find pavement a little on the plain side might want to get in on today’s deal: for $5, you’ll get admission to a motocross practice or a Saturday evening of motocross races at Sunshine Motocross, plus a hot dog and an order of french fries. Races start at 7:00 p.m. every Saturday night; practices are every night except on Wednesdays and Fridays. If you have your own dirt bike or ATV, you can even race the track (Sunshine does not rent dirt bikes or ATVs and this Groupon does not cover additional racing fees).
If you’re under the impression that motocross is a game played with imported cheeses, you might want to brush up a little on the sport’s rules and flag system. The true appeal of scrambling should require little explanation, though, as it combines mud, motors, and hang-time, the highly sought trinity of awesomeness.
Regardless of who wins, you’ll see crescents of mud flying, heavy machines flying, people in jumpsuits flying—you might even see sandwiches flying, if they’re thinking happy thoughts. Given all the variables, the outcome is sure to surprise, making motocross the ideal sport for supergamblers. Stock up on this Groupon for the cold months ahead, and use it to see the exciting rounds of Sunshine’s 2009 Winter/Fall Series.
To give you an idea of what to expect, check out the dirt bike and ATV events below:
Heroes of Motocross
A popular variation of motocross is the freestyle competition, or FMX, where riders attempt to impress judges with wicked tricks and big air. It was invented quite accidentally during the tragic 1978 inside-outing of Chick “RagTag” O’Brien. Since then, however, many freestyle phoenixes have risen from his ashes:
Janus “Moon-Bounce” Marceau. Signature move: The Snick Roundhouse
“Cowboy” Rochelle Cleo. Signature move: The Quidditch
Screamin’ Screaming Greg. Signature move: The Double-Scream
“Sandra Day O’Motocross. Signature move: The Shrexucutioner.
“Doctor Unstoppable. Signature move: Super Unknown
