River Valley Grand Prix 2017

Date: Saturday, November 25, 2017 to Sunday, November 26, 2017
Time: 6:00am to 5:00pm
Location: pin Hide Map River Front Grand Prix 5700 Midland Blvd, Fort Smit

The Annual River Front Grand Prix will host more than 400 riders from eight+ states competing in all skill levels and ages with the top regional pros racing for bragging rights and prize money. The RFGP is a Thanksgiving weekend tradition in the Mid-south, off-road racing world and the biggest off-road race in Arklahoma. For the first time in RFGP history, Mark Kariya will shoot photos and cover the details of the event. The excitement of the RFGP is based on not only the thousands in free stuff given out, but also on the unique and challenging course. This event has become a regional championship with riders who don't normally get to race together due to following different racing series during the year, but they get to race together at the RFGP and see who is the fastest. The RFGP will feature the top riders from Arkansas, Oklahoma, Missouri, Kansas, Illinois, Nebraska, Florida, Nebraska, Colorado and Texas. There are classes for riders as young as 4 years old up to the super seniors (age 50 and over). The team classes have become very popular in recent years, as this is one or the physically and mentally toughest events in the surrounding area. The courses are varied for different events during the weekend, but all have been redesigned to make the event better for the crowds watching as spectators. Award-winning catering from Pigs Eye BBQ will be available.
