Dust Hustle has no class restrictions and allows virtually anything with two wheels -- motor–scooters, super sports, choppers, cruisers, bobbers, vintage classics, trials bikes, even sidecar racers–to duke it out, all at the same time. This brings together the loopiest and most diversified group of riders (novices to track hardened pros), on one flat track, the motorcycle racing world has ever possibly seen.
So what does all this add up to? Arguably the most unique and fun grassroots race event you could ever attend. Where else would you see Batman racing against a bobber? Put it on your bucketlist, you can't miss the next Dust Hustle.
