Interlake State Recreation Area in Lynnville will host the 2013 LA Black Coal National Enduro off-road motorcycle race on Sunday, Sept. 15.
Interlake will be closed to public trail-riding on Sunday for race safety.
Interlake is a 3,500-acre former coal mine in Pike and Warrick counties and is one of two state-owned destinations for motorized off-road riding in Indiana.
Although Interlake is not officially closed on Saturday, Sept. 14, the DNR is encouraging the motorized off-road riding public to avoid the property and instead visit Redbird State Recreation Area near Linton.
The LA Black Coal National Enduro is sanctioned through the American Motorcyclist Association with more than 425 amateur and professional competitors. The race begins at 8 a.m.
The main parking area will be used for event staff, competitors and race support. Spectators are encouraged to park safely elsewhere on the property and view the race from Clutter Road to the west and County Road 1200-N to the north.
Nearly 40 miles of new trail have been built for the race. Many of those new miles will be open to the public in October.
