Nitro Arenacross TicketsNitro Arenacross has top professional as well as amateur motorcycle riders who compete on custom-designed tracks that are manmade inside of arenas. The events feature some of the most recognizable riders in the sport competing on upwards of 150 truckloads of manicured dirt that launch the athletes and their motorcycles over 60 feet into the air. Up for grabs at these events are a Weekend Event Pro Purse and then the larger Tour Purse. Nitro Arenacross comes out to 12 states during its tours and is considered to be the largest indoor motocross tour in the United States. These events have been known to have more than 300 racers with amateurs as young as 4-year-old Oskar Roner competing to take home the Nitro Arenacross title. Nitro Arenacross now operates under Hoosier Arenacross, and you can expect all the same level of quality sportsmanship and fun that you are accustomed to.
