The trademark close-quarters indoor motorcycle racing of AMSOIL Arenacross will visit 10 cities across the United States for 2013 in its quest to crown a champion. On January 4th and January 5th, reigning back-to-back national champion Tyler Bowers will lead the world's best arenacross competitors into Worcester, for two nights of captivating action from the DCU Center for the season-opening round of the championship.

A new competitive format that showcases head-to-head bracket racing and two Main Events is sure to guarantee high drama as riders battle mere inches from one another while launching up to 30 feet in the air on a highly technical track filled with air-inducing obstacles. Never before in 27 years of AMSOIL Arenacross competition has so much been on the line during any given night of the championship, as coveted points will be up for grabs throughout each evening of action.

AMSOIL Arenacross is the world's most intimate form of dirt-bike racing, with man-made dirt battlegrounds built inside just 18,000 square feet of space. An astounding 170 truckloads of dirt will be brought in to the arena, boasting 1,500 cubic yards of soil that is sculpted into a technical, awe-inspiring layout made to challenge riders and bring the crowd to its feet. Hundreds of riders will vie for the chance to win during an elimination format that will leave just 16 riders with a shot at victory every evening.

Week in and week out, the national tour travels the country, from the shores of New England to the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, ultimately logging over 10,000 miles by season's end. At each stop, AMSOIL Arenacross turns America's most beloved arenas into a showcase of speed, precision, and aggression. Each night, one rider will stand above the rest as the winner, putting them one step closer to the ultimate goal of being crowned champion.

AMSOIL Arenacross hasn't visited New England's second largest city since 2004 and following an eight-year hiatus, the long overdue return of this one-of-a-kind spectacle is sure to bring excitement to the region. As the first round of the championship, anything can and will happen over the course of back-to-back nights.

Professional action for the Worcester stop of AMSOIL Arenacross kicks off on Friday, January 4, followed by second night of competition on Saturday, January 5. The always-exciting Amateur Day closes out the weekend on Sunday, January 6, as hundreds of local riders of all ages, skill levels, and genders take their chance to compete on a world-class track.
