ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  As many as 300 BMX racers will invade Albany and Chehaw Park Friday night and Saturday for BMX's Regional race.

Friday crews were preparing the track for the practice session and preliminary races that start at 6:30 PM. The race is one of four Regional Races held across the southeast. Organizers say they'll have racers from three years old through the oldest racer who's 77. It also has a big economic impact on the region.

"We're talking hotels, we're talking restaurants and gas stations, and we're also talking about people getting to know the city we always hope that the track and Albany's really good about that getting in touch with local news, letting the hotels know what's going on so people come to the park and people really love coming to this park," said Shayne Robinson, National Bicycle League.

If you want to come out and watch the event it's free to the public. The races will run from early morning, though late in the afternoon. The event leads up to the final championship and the last chance to qualify for nationals in Peachtree City in August.
