The 45th Annual Hangtown Motocross Classic is back at Prairie City State Recreation Park with the pros racing on Saturday.
Hosted by the Dirt Diggers North Motorcycle Club (DDNMC), the Hangtown Classic is one of the most coveted trophies of the 12-race Pro Motocross Championship Series and the crown jewel of the series — hosting the largest crowds of the season, year in and year out.
Practice and time qualifications will be in the morning. The opening ceremony is at 12:30 p.m. followed by two motos each for the women, 250 and 450 classes, for a full action packed day from sun-up to sun-down.
To celebrate the 45th Annual Hangtown Classic, the pro pits will be open in the morning to everyone free.  Adding to the excitement this year is a re-designed track layout which will add a fresh challenge to the riders; and new expanded seating and hospitality section for spectators. The modified course will not only provide new vantage points to watch all of the action, but will bring the race closer to the huge spectator base that popularized Hangtown.
To get tickets and full race information about the Hangtown Motocross Classic, visit hangtownmx.com and click on tickets.
Gates open at 7 a.m. tomorrow. Yesterday and today were Hangtown Amateur Days.
