POTLATCH — The Lewiston Supercross has moved headquarters to a smaller town, but that does not necessarily entail a smaller venue.
“The cool thing about it is we were able to build a much larger supercross track than we were in Lewiston,” said promoter Eric Christiansen, whose Rogers Motors Potlatch Supercross event Saturday will be held on a course behind Scenic Six Park. “So that’s going to be more fun for the riders — and the spectators, for that matter.”
Gates will open at 2 p.m., with action to start at 4 p.m. The program will feature a full schedule of amateur and professional races ranging from the 50 beginner to the 450 pro and “everything in between,” as Christiansen put it. The purse for pro riders is a 200 percent payback.
Advance tickets are sold at a discount price of $10 for youth age 6-12 and $12 for adults, and can be bought at Harvest Foods in Potlatch and Les Schwab in Moscow or Lewiston.
Christiansen has no intention of canceling or postponing the event due to weather concerns.
“I got calls today with the rain,” he said. “Of course now it’s sunny, and pretty much supposed to be decent for the rest of the weekend, so that’s going to be good.”
Tickets at the gate cost $12 for youth and $15 for adults, with children 5 and under admitted free of charge.
