The highlight of the TransWorld SLAM Fest, presented by MTA Distributing, is the pro SLAM race, which pits riders in a head-to-head, tournament-style competition on the Milestone Supercross track. The eight fastest qualifiers are put into four two-man, two-lap heat races. The winners move on to two two-man, two-lap semis, with the winners advancing to the SLAM Final. A third wild card rider – editor's choice – is seeded into the three two-lap, three-rider main events. The rider with the best overall score in the three finals is crowned the TransWorld SLAM Champion and takes home the entire $5000 purse, the coveted TransWorld SLAM Championship Belt, and a brand-new Traeger Grill. Past TransWorld SLAM winners include Dean Wilson, Wil Hahn, Justin Bogle, Matt Goerke, Josh Hill, and Vince Friese.
The TransWorld SLAM is a unique event that brings so much diversity to the starting line each year thanks to the multitude of talent looking to go home with the coveted SLAM Belt. One rider that’s a sure thing every year that seemingly encourages the most amount of excitement is privateer Nick “The Milestone Assassin” Schmidt. The Suzuki rider is a Milestone MX local, and he’s not afraid to thrown down on the racetrack. Schmidt is a seasoned professional in the always stacked 450 class, so he’s no stranger to strong competitors.
Every competition needs a wild card, and The Assassin has proved every year that he has the speed and intensity to walk away with the $5,000 cash and of course the TWMX SLAM Championship Belt. “I’m always in for the TransWorld SLAM.” says Schmidt. “Milestone is my home track, so I have to bring the heat every year!”
Schmidt joins Jake Weimer, Tallon LaFountaine, Chris Blose, Darryn Durham, and more, as pre-entered riders in the September 24 event.
