For those bringing their street legal Jeep or other off-road vehicle to the event, Minnesota 4Fest brings the fun as a unique challenge for your vehicle.

The course is open from 1-10PM on Friday, 10AM-10PM on Saturday, and 10AM-5PM on Sunday.
If racing is more your speed, the second round of Nitro Rallycross, the high-flying, full-contact racing series led by action sports legend Travis Pastrana, will be taking place on Saturday and Sunday. A roster of 15 global racing superstars will be hitting ERX’s short course, which has been updated to accommodate the 600-horsepower rallycross Supercars taking part. Other stars on hand to compete will include four-time US champion Scott Speed, past Nitro Rallycross champions Kevin and Timmy Hansen, and Steve Arpin, who started his career racing snowmobiles and dirt late models elsewhere in Minnesota.
