AMSOIL Arenacross is moving into the Greensboro Coliseum Complex over the next two days.

"We are on day one of load in," said Ryan Worth, AMSOIL Arenacross Operations Manager.

Heavy trucks dumped 3,000 tons of dirt for this weekend's event.

"It's over 1,600 yards of dirt that they're bringing in, and it's over 100 truck loads. They'll keep running dirt all day today, constantly. While they're doing it, you can see, they actually build the track while they're loading it," said Worth.

But it's not a straightforward track. Pro and amateur dirt bike racers will take on steep jumps and obstacles.

"It's definitely something you want to see. It will keep you on the edge of your seat," said Worth.

The dirt here at the coliseum is a little sandy, but if they have to change it they can. They simply just water it down.

"We can dry the dirt. We'll put fans on it. They'll use any equipment they need to, necessary to, make the track perfect for the riders and make it for a great event," said Worth.

There's no regulation of how thick the dirt has to be or the consistency. Crews are just responsible for spreading it and making it as compact as possible. All that work, just to shovel it all back up and move it out after Sunday's final race.

"Once, the checker flag flies, we'll actually tear everything down. All the banners all the structures everything. We'll put them in our ops trailers. The dirt crew will put everything in one pile and cycle trucks all night long," said Worth.

It's a dirty job, but someone has to make sure the track is ready for racing.

The AMSOIL Arenacross professional race is Saturday night at the Coliseum Complex.

Amateur day is Sunday
