According to the Facebook event, tickets to attend the races are going to be $20 at the gate, keep in mind that kids under 12 are going to get in for FREE! Tickets can be purchased in advance right at the Faribault Harley Davidson store or through the Faribault Harley Davidson website:
If you aren't familiar with flat track racing, it's similar to what is described as Speedway racing but is quite different. Flat track motorcycles can have either two-stroke or four-stroke engines in amateur competition. Flat track bikes have front and rear suspension, and rear brakes. The brakes are what make it completely distinct from Speedway, as the brakes allow for a different cornering technique.
Minnesota has been home to some really popular and good flat track racers, such as Billy Hofmeister and Jillian Deschenes. The whole day should be a ton of fun, and well worth attending if you are looking for something to do around Faribault in 3 weeks!
