The AX Tour returns to Mississippi for the second time landing in Philadelphia on Saturday where Cole Thompson once again is the favorite to take "The Clash."

Thompson faced stiffer competition two weeks ago in the tour's only stop in Kentucky. His AX Pro main event win streak ended after Nathan Scaggs, part of the Spine Chillers Racing Team, swept both the pro main and Pro Lites class main event. Thompson rebounded and grabbed his third-straight "Clash for Cash" event extending his points lead to 30 over second place Kyle White. Thompson keeps a slight lead in the AX Pro standings with a 6-point advantage over Maxx Malatia, who also leads the AX Lites Pro standings.

The Philadelphia stop is one of six rounds in Mississippi before the final on Feburary 8 in Tunica, MS. Check out the animated track map:

The top pro riders compete in the AX and AX Lites classes and the best riders of both classes compete head-to-head in their respective categories in the 20-lap main event entitled " Clash for Cash" at each stop in the tour. The Arenacross Tour also features more than 30 amateur class of competitions including pro quad races and new this year is professional women's motocross.

After Saturday, riders get a week off before the AX Tour continues December 21 in Memphis, TN. For more information visit the AX Tour website or buy tickets.
