KINGMAN - Dust off your bike helmets and pads - the new BMX track at the Mohave County Fairgrounds is nearly complete.

"We're very, very close," said Dustin Lewis, who has been working on the track since the start of the project. "The start gate should be going in next week and we should have our first race a week after Labor Day."

The track even has its own Facebook page at High Desert 66 BMX.

"All we need now is some fencing and some lighting," Lewis said.

The group could also use a few volunteers and some donations to help cover the cost of the fencing. Anyone interested in volunteering can contact Lewis at (928) 303-1200.

Once the track is open, the plan is to hold at least one race per week and have the track open to riders every Monday and some Saturdays.

The group chose Mondays and Saturdays because most of the BMX riders polled in the county said they race or train in Lake Havasu City on Wednesdays and Fridays and in Bullhead City on Tuesdays and Thursdays, Lewis said.

There's even talk of a regional BMX cup that would include races at all three tracks in the county.

I grew up racing BMX and am so excited that this opportunity is being presented to the kids in the Kingman community. There is nothing quite like the BMX family :)
