Motorcycles to Race Inside Salem Civic Center

In its storied history, the Salem Civic Center has seen daredevils jump the length of the arena on a motorcycle, ride dirt bikes inside of a steel cage and even race motorbikes with steel-studded tires on ice.  Now, the building is set to host amateur and professional motorcyclists for two nights of action-packed Arenacross racing on dirt. The Tri-State Arenacross circuit is set to race in Salem February 7 and 8 of 2020.

The fastest Arenacross riders on the east coast will compete for more than $10,000 in cash and prizes each night during their weekend stop in Salem. The 2020 indoor championship series features races in Pikeville and Lexington, Kentucky, Huntington, West Virginia and the championship finale in Salem.

These events are sure to bring excitement to the entire family with their thrilling and unpredictable circuits around the tight arena course. Doors will open at 5:30 p.m. each night and races will begin at 7 p.m. A variety of classes will be featured, including amateur classes open to boys and girls as young as age four.

Tickets for both Tri-State Arenacross shows at the Salem Civic Center go on sale Friday, November 22, at 10 a.m.  General Admission tickets are $26 for adults, $16 for Kids 12-and-under and children 4-and-under are FREE. Preferred parking also is available for $5.  Tickets can be purchased at the Salem Civic Center Box Office Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. and on Saturday from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. They also can be purchased at Ticketmaster.com.
