Change Of Pace: Our Weekend In Wilkes-Barre At Arenacross

Intrigued by the new format (head-to-head bracket races, twin main events, Run To The Championship) that the AMSOIL Arenacross series has adopted in 2012-2013, we called our travel department and scheduled a trip to Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, for stop six of the ten round championship. There are stark differences between AX and SX, but at the root it is the same thing: dudes flying through the air on dirt bikes. The two days of racing in the Mohegan Sun Arena were action packed and a nice change-up from the routine we have established covering Supercross and the Nationals. If your town is one of the four remaining stops of this year’s series, we recommended you take in at least one night of action. You won’t be disappointed.

Dave Ginolfi’s consistency over the year helped the KMS/Mandingo Pickles/Scott/KTM rider earn a spot in the Race For The Championship, where he and nine other racers will battle for the final four rounds of the season for the title. The format is a play on NASCAR’s Chase For The Cup and gives the riders a second chance at taking control of the series from Tyler Bowers.
