APD hosting Iron Horse Shoot Out motorcycle competition Aug. 4-6 – Amarillo Globe-News

The sound of roaring engines will fill the air during the inaugural Iron Horse Shoot Out, hosted by the Amarillo Police Department this week. The three-day event is open to the public and is family friendly. The action takes place Thursday through Saturday, Aug. 4-6, in the north parking lot of the Amarillo Civic Center. 
“There are going to be all kinds of different events for the riders to participate in,” said Carla Burr, Public Information Officer with the Amarillo Police Department (APD). 
According to a news release, civilians, and motor officers from as far away as Virginia, Kansas, Nebraska, Louisiana, Kentucky, and Arizona have registered to ride in the event. Along with APD, agencies from Texas that will be participating include the McKinney Police Department, Dumas Police Department, Pampa Police Department, Borger Police Department, Garza County Constables, Grapevine Police Department, Cleburne Police Department, University Park Police Department, Rowlett Police Department, Lubbock Police Department, Watauga Police Department, Houston Police Department, Grand Prairie Police Department, Travis County Sheriff’s Office, Rockwall Police Department, Dallas County Sheriff’s Department and the Haltom City Police Department. 
There will be around 100 motorcycle riders from across the nation. Both officers and novice riders will be riding in this event to show off and hone their skills, with endless learning opportunities.  
“Not only are we welcoming riders from all over Texas and the U.S., but we are also creating a fun, family-friendly event for area residents to enjoy,” explains APD Lt. Wade Pennington. “Near the two competition tracks, we’ll have food trucks, the Amarillo Crime Stoppers Kid ID Trailer, the Amarillo Fire Department Smoke House, a number of local vendors, and much more.” 
All the proceeds will benefit the 100 Club of the Texas Panhandle. The 100 club aids the families of certified peace officers and firefighters killed or injured in the line of duty.
