The Red River BMX Racers are looking for a new home because the land they are currently using behind Simplot was sold by the city.

The city is helping the non-profit organization find new land just west of Grand Forks, but the group is run by volunteers and they don't have equipment or trucks to move their dirt and buildings.

The last BMX race of the season is this Thursday, and they need to start moving out as soon as possible.

Track Director Kelly O'Hara says they need all the help they can get for their third move in 11 years.

"Its just, its frustrating, we put so much time and effort into this place when we first built it. We buried our own water, and put our own power in the ground. You know, its just endless, endless work," O'Hara said.

If anyone can help the racers, you can contact O'Hara at 701-610-1843.
