The event is expected to draw hundreds of motorcycles from a five-state area to compete for the $2,000 winners purse. An all new Street Bike class will compete also. The SuperBike Showdown will use the "ET (elapsed time) racing" format: racers make several time runs, then use the accumulated data to predict their performance in eliminations. The winner is the racer who combines the quickest starting line reaction time with the closest run to his or her performance prediction.
