A field full of local and imported talent, including Masters World champion Steve “Hitman” Hill, Lanell “The Rock” Rockmore and his Pennsylvania crew, Collegiate National Sprint Champion, David “Goliath” Espinoza, Team Type 1’s “Blazin'” Joe Eldridge and more will battle it out over 4 heats of Keirins to see who the top 6 riders will be to compete in the A-Final and take all the cash and bragging rights as Dick Lane Velodrome’s Keirin Champion. Arrive early to catch the Little League kids race and Men’s and Women’s categorized races.

Afternoon program kicks off at 3pm with the main events beginning at 6pm.
Admission: $5 per person or $10 for the whole family.
