Two lucky winners will be drawn pm Friday and all winners must be present.
On Saturday evening, the Top 10 motorcycle riders in every PM class, as well as select upper-level AM classes, will be entered to win a motorcycle excursion through the San Rafael Swell in southern Utah, including the Five Miles of Hell, Dick Brass Trails, Devil’s Racetrack and Chimney Rock.
