4 wheel racing in the spotlight at the Marion County Fair

Racing takes center stage at the Marion County fair as riders of all ages get in on the competition.

Wednesday night, racers were on 4 wheelers at the track in Palmyra, Missouri.

Racers said the crews that set up the track do a great job challenging them but making sure it’s a fun time.

They said the Marion County Fair race is one of the better fair races held in the area.

“Buffy has been having this over here for a really long time ever since I was riding little bikes. It’s a lot of fun and draws a really nice crowd. The pay is pretty well here and of all the fair races, this is one of the ones a lot of people want to hit so you’re going to see a lot of good racing out there,” said racer Travis Merrill.

Thursday night, the motorcross competition will take place. Practice gets underway at 6:30 p.m. with the races starting at 8 p.m.
