And make sure to vote for your favorite bike in the Peoples’ Choice Invitational Bike Show! Later in the day, you can settle back with great fair food while you enjoy 10-time AMA trials Champ Geoff Aaron and his trials team perform its outstanding trial stunt shows at 5 and 8 p.m.
The Hoosier Lottery Grandstand also features for the first time the Indiana State Fair Motorcycle Rodeo. This invitational rodeo features some of the best riders (and passengers) in the Midwest!
