“This was a tremendously successful day of qualifying and evening of racing at Comcast Arena,” said Gary Weikel, EPFD Board President. “Thousands of people were welcomed to downtown to enjoy exhilarating family entertainment in the Arena, with some locals even joining the race, and everyone enjoying Everett’s hospitality.”
Local Everett rider, 24-year old Allyson Johnson, was profiled in several live TV segments on KOMO 4 News on Friday morning. A CPA by day, Allyson offered a sneak peek into the thrills and spills of racing. EnduroCross continues to grow throughout the northwest and offers several amateur classes and women’s events.

Mike Brown held off Colton Haaker for second place, and Taddy Blazusiak salvaged fourth place despite two crashes. Cory Graffunder took fifth place.
