Wiregrass BMX Track

New construction is on the way at the Wiregrass BMX Track at Westgate Park and a $2,500 gift from Century-Tel is making it possible.

The check will enable volunteers at the track to build a new announcer's tower in the middle of the infield.

It’s an effort to add to the appeal of the track on a national level.

During the last three years, Wiregrass BMX has been the host of three major races, featuring more than 600 riders from across the country.

Organizers hope the addition of the Century-Tel tower will bring another big race to the Circle City in the fall.
