World’s premier action sport competition scheduled for September 22-23
TOOELE VALLEY, UTAH (June 25, 2018) — Utah Motorsports Campus is proud to announce that it will host the world’s premier action sport competition, the Third Annual Nitro World Games, on September 22-23, 2012.
“This is a huge achievement for our team,” said UMC General Manager Willem Geyer. “The Nitro World Games has the potential to be the biggest event in the history of this facility, and we are very excited to be able to provide events like this to our neighbors in the Tooele Valley and throughout the Intermountain West.”
Coming off tremendous success in years one and two, the third annual Nitro World Games will boast further progression in motorized competition with the addition of Nitro Rallycross (NRX), the debut of FMX Quarterpipe and the return of FMX Best Trick.
Rallycross may be new to Nitro World Games, but rally racing is certainly not new to the four-wheel motorsports world. To attract some of the biggest names in the sport, Nitro Rallycross has developed a unique and innovative all-new track layout like no other. The world’s best drivers will battle for the top spot on a challenging, purpose-built, permanent track at Utah Motorsports Campus.
More details on race formats, course design and drivers are set to be announced in the coming weeks.
Also new to Nitro World Games is the FMX Quarterpipe competition. The NWG Quarterpipe is a one-of-a-kind mechanical ramp that allows the degree of takeoff and landing to be adjusted. Standing 32 feet tall and 70 feet wide, this set up gives riders a massive area of operation and allows them to push hard and shoot higher than ever before. With a setup that is nearly double the size of anything else out there, this innovative quarterpipe is going to leave fans speechless as the world’s best FMX athletes attempt to break into new heights.
After wowing the world in year one and year two, FMX Best Trick will return to Nitro World Games at UMC. With numerous world firsts landed in the FMX Best Trick discipline thus far, including Gregg Duffy’s double front flip in 2016 and Harry Bink’s front flip rock solid in 2017, the competition will be steep heading in to this year’s contest. Formatting will remain the same as years past, where each athlete will get two attempts to execute the best trick of their choice, with judges scoring tricks in real time. Who will take home the trophy this year?
