The Cowboy is ready to ride … again. “Cowboy” Kenny Bartram, one of the biggest names in the history of freestyle motocross, is set to be in Mesquite this weekend to defend his two titles in the premier race of the popular Mesquite Off-Road Weekend festival. Mesquite Off-Road Weekend is a family-friendly event that offers something for everyone from fan experiences to world-class racing, and the event hits Mesquite this Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the Eureka Casino Resort.MLN-OffRoadfeb19-15

Bartram is the only racer to ever win the “Beyond Pro” race, an insane racing spectacle that combines freestyle motocross with enduro cross racing. He is looking to win it for a third time this year.

“I’m super pumped to come back and defend my two titles, but also very nervous,” said Bartram. “I know there is going to be some stiff competition this year with Brett Cue and Nate Adams, as well as the enduro cross regulars who have had another year to practice their ramp skills. It’s going to be difficult to defend.”

The Beyond Pro is the main event of Mesquite Off-Road Weekend and culminates a full day on the unique track that is located behind the Eureka Casino Resort. Racing classes from kids all the way up to professionals will take to the track all day Saturday giving fans something cool to watch all day while everyone prepares for the epic Beyond Pro race on Saturday night. The Beyond Pro race follows a stunt show and racer award presentations.

“Absolute chaos and pandemonium is the best way to describe it,” said Bartram following his first Beyond Pro win in 2013. “Just adding the freestyle ramp to an enduro cross race is something that has never been done and never been heard of so it was kind of awkward. But it was great and it made for a great show. It was kind of cool and it made it way more dangerous, but I have been saying for a long time that if it’s not dangerous, it’s probably not going to be much fun.”

Mesquite Off-Road Weekend 2015 is back with more surprises and more fun. And Cowboy Kenny Bartram is the man to beat in the Beyond Pro race. The tradition continues. Visit for all details and ticket information.
