Get your backsides trackside at the Broken Hill Speedway tonight to see who will be crowned King of the Hill.

It promises to be a great night of full throttle thrills and spills racing.

There will be juniors and seniors racing motocross flat track, sidecars, and vintage sidecars.

No doubt there will be an excellent turnout in the juniors, and can these kids ride!

A lot of juniors will ride two classes: Xavier Ferguson 740 65cc and 85cc, Maddison Khan 85cc and Jnr 250, Max Howse 65cc and 85cc Talon Zammit-Harvey 85cc, Tom Mcrae 10 jnr 250cc, Eli Bock 125cc.

It's great to see the kids step up to the big stage under lights and give it a 100 percent but still show great sportsmanshi that augurs well for local speedway.

The senior motocross flat track will not disappoint, with people like Rob Tumes showing that you are never too old to do something you love.

He will give all the younger guys a run for their money.

But aboard the all-new Kawasaki KXF450 Logan Coombe #42 will be full throttle.

He has shown some great results interstate and he will be looking for an overall win.

But people like Callum Dodimead 94, Joseph Copper 929 and Benny Khan 143 and Cec Fraser 12 will show that they only have one place in mind, and that's first.

One mistake from the leader and one of these guys will take the win.

The sidecars will provide some of the best racing of the night; these 1000cc bikes show no mercy.

They're loud, fast and there is not a dull moment.

And that's what we love about Broken Hill Speedway; with some interstate riders racing it's up to the Broken Hill riders to show at home on our track that we are the Kings of the Hill.

Riders like Stephens and Morris will be pushing their bikes to the limit to beat the Victorian-seeded Hancock and Johnson.

Some other local guys racing are Nathan Johnston and Benny Khan, and Howse and Jarvis. They have had a couple of races interstate and will be looking for some quick close racing.

The Classic sidecar will be a blast from the past. These bikes will be great to watch. A big thank you to these guys for coming out and racing.

As time goes on these bikes get harder to run and parts harder to find to run them.

Gates open at 5pm. Racing starts at dusk.
