Fans of motocross are revving up for an exciting weekend of racing at Fast Farms in Altamont this weekend.

Phillip Myers, co-owner with his wife Kasi of Fast Farms, says the crowd at Saturday and Sunday’s races will enjoy competition from over 15 states and Canada.

This weekend’s races open the Bobcat of Nashville Big Show Series, which includes 12 races in three states – Tennessee, Mississippi, and Kentucky.

“We have categories for all ages,” says Myers. “The youngest racers will compete on Saturday, while older age groups will compete on both days.”

Fun for the entire family is a big part of the Fast Farms race day experience. Kasi schedules activities throughout race weekends for fans of all ages. In addition to concessions, there will be a movie night on Saturday, RC cars, a BMX track, and ongoing games.

“Kasi works really hard to make sure it is a great experience for everyone who comes out, “says Myers. “Throughout the year, we have scavenger hunts and special activities centered around holidays.”

Fast Farms was recently voted the number one track in Tennessee by Moto Playground magazine.

Fast Farms is located at 287 McCarter Road, Alatamont. Motocross races begin at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday. For more information, visit their website at www.fastfarmsmx.com.
