Thousands of Off-Road enthusiasts have flocked to the area during the previous two Mesquite Off-Road Weekend events and the festival goes to the next level in 2015.

The third annual event will feature increased interactivity for fans with VIP experiences, the Enduro Challenge races that are to motocross racers what the popular mud runs are to fitness enthusiasts, the epic Beyond Pro championship race, the PowerSports Plaza, trail rides, entertainment, a freestyle Moto X exhibition show, and a chance for the everyday fan to go big and pull off their own freestyle Moto X trick as part of the unique thrill seeker mega ramp experience.

Among the world class athletes scheduled to attend and participate during Mesquite Off-Road Weekend are Motocross legend Cowboy Kenny Bartram (the two-time, Beyond Pro defending champion), EnduroCross Superstars like Cody Webb and Destry Abbott, plus a new crop of FMX stars including Brett Cue. Several other riders’ names will be released in the coming weeks.

Tickets start at $7 for kids and $12 for adults with all-inclusive weekend VIP passes available for only $30 (down substantially from the first two years). Fans can visit the Mesquite Off Road website for tickets and information.

“To me, Mesquite Off-Road Weekend is a celebration of racing and outdoor activities, and much more than just an opportunity for fans to watch some of the best racers in the world,” Eureka Casino Resort COO Andre Carrier said. “This has always been a community event, but for Mesquite Off-Road Weekend 2015 we are showing our appreciation to the fans by offering chances for everyone to really become a part of the action. We have lowered ticket prices as a thank you and the VIP racer meet and greets will be open to more fans.”

Racing classes are available from youth to professional on the one-of-a-kind course located behind the award-winning Eureka Casino Resort and event organizers believe athletes from all racing disciplines will enjoy the unique Enduro Challenge track that has been created. Racer registration is available online.

“EnduroCross is to off-road racers what the Tough Mudder is to those who participate in 5ks and 10ks,” said Bryan Green, Race Director. “EnduroCross is the next level and we want everyday racers to feel comfortable giving the sport a try and we will be offering clinics and training sessions to give the Regular Joe’s a chance to experience this adrenalized sport. Each of our events will feature amateur riders in a kind of pro-am format so it will be exciting for everyone involved.”
