World class racers including John Harrah, Roger Norman, Chuck Dempsey and Sam Berri will hit the dirt, throttle up and race through mountains and valleys east of town completing three full loops, then back to the finish line jump at the GSR by late afternoon.
Xtreme LivFast Super Moto (XLSM) professionals are set to take to the track on Saturday with Pro motorcycle and ATV racers going wheel to wheel. Supermoto is a 1.3 mile track that is ¾ asphalt and ¼ dirt with some really unique designs with an over under bridge, a 15 foot tabletop jump and hair pin corners. Several well known riders will be racing on Saturday including factory Red Bull KTM rider Cameron Beaubier, 125 Supercross champion Mickey Diamond and Jake Thompson.
Xtreme LivFast Freestyle Motocross (XLFM) is a professional racing exhibition team who will throw themselves and their bikes 70+ feet into the air completing a variety of dangerous stunts.

Saturday night they will step it up a notch and compete for the bragging rights of the biggest whip.
Grand Sierra Resort is topping off the weekend with live entertainment every night featuring The OffSpring in the Grand Theatre, and at The Beach DJ Tommy Lee and John Huntington of Huntington Tattoo and star of A&E’s “Inked” will be mixing up the tunes.
