Mike Kidd, president of MKEG is looking forward to bringing the national caliber arenacross racing to Fresno for the first time. “Fresno is a very strong motorcycle market and expect big crowds all weekend,” Kidd said. “I have always looked forward to introducing arenacross to central California. They fans are going to be very impressed.”
