Motorcross Races Kick Off Sunday

Last updated on Friday, July 5, 2013

(BEDFORD) - After an accident at last year’s motocross race, Lawrence County fair organizers say policies and rules are unchanged.

Dalton Cornelison was injured after then 13-year-old Benny Royer of Springville, went over a jump and hit Cornelison, bike head-on.

Royer had no idea Cornelison had all ready laid his bike down on the other side of the jump. Fair officials say there was someone at the jump to signal for problems but there was just not enough time to prevent the accident.

Jeff Tillett reports that this year's motocross race will have some changes in layout, but no changes in rules or policies.

The motocross races will be Sunday at 7:30 p.m. Admission is $8 for adults, $5 for kids ages 7-12, and free for children 6 and under.
