DELMONT, Pa. (August 25, 2008) -- A $10,000 purse, with $5,000 to win, has been posted for this Saturday's Second Annual ATV Open. The invitational event is scheduled for this Saturday, Aug. 30, at Steel City Raceway.

In a move fitting of America's "Super Bowl" of Motocross Racing, the AMA will award a special No. 1 plate to the ATV Open winner.

"In just one year, this race has grown into Professional ATV Racing's premier annual Championship event," said AMA ATV Race Series Manager Harv Whipple. "The event's invitational format is truly unique, allowing the factories to choose their riders, which enables us to pit the best of the best in ATV racing against each other on Steel City's tough and exciting track.

"This event is all about prestige," added Whipple. "Though teams compete all season to win the coveted 11-race ATV Motocross Championship, winning the ATV Open is always front and center in their minds...and winning it equals bragging rights."

The Second Annual Steel City AMA Pro ATV Open will feature Pro racing on Saturday, Aug. 30 and a full card of Amateur racing on Sunday, Aug. 31. Tickets start at just $30 for adults and $15 for children 6-11. Children 5 and under receive free admission. For information, including a weekend schedule and where to purchase tickets, please visit
