(ABC 6 News)-- Motokazie dirt bike racing is in Kellogg, MN for Labor Day weekend.
"I wish I could do that because I feel like free falling would be awesome," said Kayla Stertz, girlfriend of one of the racers.
Hundreds of racers and onlookers camped out for the 3 day event which runs through Monday.
35 classes of racers that range from kids age four to adults in their fifties.
Evan Sherman says he will be a professional one day. He's only six, and loves the feeling of jumping through the air.
"I like when I’m in the air ‘cause sometimes it like makes me do a whip," said Sherman.
Sherman looks up to people like Zack Williams, a professional who has won many events in his career, including today.
"I’d say my dad got me into it. My sister started racing before me and she decided to pass her bike on to me so then I just loved it ever since," said Williams.
Stertz and her boyfriend, Ryan Ores, think it's great that kids are involved in racing.
"It’s good for kids. It's good to get into it. It's a family sport. Keeps ‘em out of trouble, keeps ‘em active," said Ores.
"You get to meet people from all over the state, other states. And you'll have friends like all over the place so it's awesome. It's not just like a school sport where you only know your school team members," said Ores.
And everyone at the event is hoping more kids jump on board.
