Salt Lake City, UT – As if the 2019 Nitro World Games in Utah weren’t already action packed enough, Nitro World Games has expanded its race offerings by adding the high intensity RSD Super Hooligan National Championship (SHNC) to the schedule of events. Produced in partnership with the Utah Sports Commission, Nitro World Games returns August 17th at Utah Motorsports Campus.
Born from the days when racers rode their bikes to the track, competed, and then rode them back home, Hooligan racing features twin multi-cylinder motors only. Bikes are 750cc and above with 19” wheels and tires, and they must have a stock frame. High-powered motorcycles sliding sideways and banging bars is what flat track is all about and while the racing always gets close and personal, the bikes still reach speeds of close to 100MPH.

The best SHNC riders including back to back champ Andy DiBrino, fan favorite Frankie Garcia, and current points leader Joe Kopp will be coming to Nitro World Games Utah to turn and burn in hopes of walking away with some cash but even more bragging rights from an extra special round of racing.
“The Super Hooligan Championship Series races are the perfect match for the Nitro World Games. SHNC riders are from every walk of life from Actions Sports athletes to welders, bike builders, artists and old pros. The one thing they all have in common is the ability to push heavy street bikes past their limits, exhibiting true heroics on two wheels.” said Roland Sands, President of Roland Sands Designs.
Moto Quarterpipe, the event so big that it’s impossible to miss, is back and ready for the world’s best FMX athletes to take it on. Last year fans witnessed Colby Raha battle it out for the top spot but this year’s field is even more stacked with riders from around the globe looking to step up to this behemoth of a FMX feature. Australian Corey Creed is back with a vengeance looking to take home the win after coming up short last year while the talented Tyler Bereman is also looking to make his mark as he was unable to compete in 2018 due to injury. All riders will have to go through Colby Raha who set the height record during last year’s competition and walked away the 1st place trophy. Who’s it going to be this year?
Nitro World Games has also released its robust FMX Best Trick field. With one of the most innovative set ups in FMX, Nitro World Games FMX Best Trick will be sure to deliver the biggest tricks ever seen in competition.
