Bar2Bar MX Park in West Wichita will host a "Border Battle" this weekend between the best motocross competitors of Kansas and Oklahoma.

"They're all coming in, starting Friday. There will be 2,000 to 4,000 people here. Riders from all across the country coming here to compete for some cash and some pretty big trophies," said the park's co-owner, Bruce Richardson.

Richardson and his family partnered with the family of his long-time friend, Tony Lummus in buying the track in 2012.

"Our whole focus was to bring the motocross community together and make it a family environment but still keep it competitive on the track," Richardson said.

This weekend's race will be the biggest of the year for the family venture - and the motocross community they work to support.

Bar2Bar MX Park is located at the Kansas International Dragway near 61st and Ridge in West Wichita.
