Loretta Lynn’s ATV Dirt Days of Summer is Hotter than Ever!!!
Pro Championship Points Chase Heats Up and Akraix’s Jon Guetter Goes for the ATV Back-Flip
Hurricane Mills, TN – One of the most anticipated ATV National Motocross events of the year, the ATV Dirt Days at the Loretta Lynn’s Ranch in Hurricane Mills, TN on August 11, 12, and 13.
Honda’s Joe Byrd is currently leads the Pro ATV Points, but Team Suzuki/Yoshimura’s Doug Gust has closed the gap to only ten points with two races remaining, but Tennessee’s own, Joe Byrd, has stole the show the past three years at Loretta’s by claiming the win in front of his home state crowd, and he is looking for a repeat performance this year as he goes after the 2006 Pro National Championship. Also, Joe Byrd’s wife the reigning Women’s Champion, Heather Byrd, is looking to claim her third consecutive championship over the high flying Angela Butler, but five consecutive wins by Angela has finally given her the advantage and chance at reclaiming the national title.
As usual, Racer Productions has went all out to provide a weekend of fun for the entire family, and as a special treat, they have invited Akraix Entertainment to perform the first ever ATV freestyle show at ATV National Motocross event on Saturday, August 12th with Derek Guetter and Caleb Moore, which are a dynamic duo in the Freestyle World as they have perfected some of the most famous aerial tricks in the book with names like the “Heal Clicker”, “Superman Seat Grab”, “Holy Man”, “Cordova”, “Cliff Hanger”, and many more.

Also, Akraix’s Jon Guetter has decided to bust out his insane back-flip in Saturday’s ATV Freestyle Show to help raise money for both Anthony and Jeremiah, so this will truly be a weekend of racing and entertainment you won’t want to miss.
