Riders compete on the Carbon County motocross track located near the Fairgrounds as part of an event held by the Carbon Emery Motorcycle Association. The track will host the first ever professional off-road competition to be held in Price this weekend. The event is expected to draw riders from across the country to compete.

In April, the Carbon/Emery Motorcycle Association held its annual motocross which attracted hundreds of competitors from across the western states to compete. The event was so successful that professional off-road motorists were attracted to the dirt track, therefore leading to the scheduling of the first ever professional off-road race to be held at the Price track.

The professional event is scheduled for May 24-25, with races beginning at 8 a.m. both days. The event is not a typical motocross, in fact it is expected to be an off-road competition. The event is expected to draw hundreds of spectators, not to mention the hundreds of competitors that will be participating.

According to CEMA member Ken Kirkwood, "the event is unlike any that has ever been held at the track. We expect about 600 competitors to show up."

The event is part of the world off-road championship series (WORCS). Because the event will consist of professional riders, factory teams will be on hand.

The races are bound to bring attention to the once unheard of dirt bike track. In fact, the event just might put the track on top of the list for future venues.
