Once the date and location for the NBL Grands, the Derby City Nationals still has plenty of horsepower for BMXers East of the Mississippi. Running in tandem with the Black Jack Nationals in Reno, the Eastern Division Championship jerseys are up for grabs in Louisville on Labor Day Weekend. E.P. Tom Sawyer State Park is an awesome setting for a big BMX race, with on-site camping and a water park near by. This is another race where it usually rains at least one of the days, so pack accordingly. Temperatures and humidity are usually pushing upper limits, so be sure you have plenty of whatever keeps you cool icing-down in the cooler. There’s a heapin’ helping of close-by hotels (closest: Courtyard Louisville Northeast), and a new Chipotle moments away by car.
