General Admission tickets are always available at the event!  All available camping will also be available at the event.  (We recommend buying camping online to secure your choice of camping lots.)

Tickets and camping are available online at the link below, where you’ll find prices and descriptions.

Local RV Rentals, delivered to the track and set up for you!


Wednesday, Thursday, Friday: You pay one time on the day you arrive, and your ticket (wristband), and camping (if applicable) will be good through the entire event, until the conclusion of racing on Sunday.

There is no Thursday-only or Friday-only ticket.  

This event is built around the PRO NATIONAL MOTOCROSS on SATURDAY.  All tickets include Saturday.  If you’re looking for a one-day ticket, Saturday is it!  Your ticket includes the pro national, the night racing afterwards and the fireworks after dark; it’s good until the night race concludes!   If you’re camping Saturday night and/or staying for the Sunday race, you’ll need a Saturday/Sunday ticket.  Not interested in the pro race?  We suggest coming for an amateur race weekend on a different date so you’re not paying for something you don’t want.

Arrive early Saturday!  Avoid the long lines and enjoy early practice sessions starting at 8am.  Practice is a great time to walk around and check out different track sections and places to sit for the day.  Bring a blanket and/or chairs, an umbrella for shade, and a cooler if you’d like.  Just no glass containers or alcohol, please.   There are some areas outside the infield where you can use an EZ Up. Umbrellas can be used anywhere, but small umbrellas only in bleachers, please.


VIP Passes will be available after the new year; they are an ADD-ON to General Admission tickets.

Trackside Parking/Tailgating in two areas: the Hammer of Thor jump and LaRocco’s Leap.  Fence row spaces will be offered after the new year to previous buyers, and the remainder will be available online.
Limited parking  is also available behind the fence row for a reduced price.  It’s a great option if you want your car and supplies nearby, if you have trouble walking long distances, and if you want a nice viewing area but don’t like to be in the big crowds.  (See Handicap Access and Viewing info below.)
IMPORTANT: Access to the Trackside Parking areas is ONLY available through the South Entrance!

Pit Passes will be available for the hours of 9am until 12pm on Saturday.  We suggest buying online; quantities are limited and tend to sell out by Friday.   There will be an early check-in Friday to alleviate the lines Saturday morning;  exact time and location TBA.



New Information! 

Both parent signatures are required for all racers under age 18.  This is an insurance requirement; it’s not optional.  The easiest way to complete the waiver is to register online.  You can complete one waiver for all amateur events and all you’ll have to do is check in at the track.  If only one parent comes to registration at the track and has not completed the online registration and waiver, we cannot sign up your child!

Before you register …

Keep in mind this is a PRO race weekend.  Amateur racing is a huge part of the event, but track prep leading up to the weekend is different, and conditions will be a bit different than usual.  Beginner racers and smaller kids, especially on 65s, may not enjoy the pro track.  Consider this before registering yourself or your kids for the Thursday, Friday (day) and Sunday events.

50 Track classes are included only in the night races this weekend; there are no 50 Track classes on the big track.  (That includes all 50cc classes, 65 & 85 Beginner and Trailblazer.)

A few classes have been cut from the Friday and Sunday programs, and class sizes are limited due to Friday schedule requirements, and to shorten the Sunday program after a long weekend.  ALL CLASSES ARE INCLUDED IN THE NIGHT RACES.  Everyone should have 1 or more classes to choose from at least one of the days; most will have classes to ride both days.  Do not ride above your normal classification (B, C or D) if your normal class isn’t available; you will be advanced from your classification if you do!

Online Registration

All races are awarded separately.  Please pick up awards after each event!  We cannot ship awards.

Class fees will be $5 more at the track, and your classes may fill up before you arrive!
Remember to rent a transponder if you don’t have one.Only rent ONE time for the weekend; you don’t need to rent for each event separately.

You can change classes at the track if there are openings. Not able to make it? Please cancel in advance in order to make room for someone else by emailing [email protected].  You can also cancel a class by coming to registration at the track BEFORE THE FIRST PRACTICE STARTS for the event you want to cancel.

Just coming for Saturday?  The best parking is through the South Entrance on Red Bud Trail.  Show your state handicap placard to help us direct you as smoothly and quickly as possible.  If you have specific needs, give us a call so we can explain the viewing options and direct you to the best track entrance. 269-695-6405.

Option 1:  Parking inside the fence (through Gate 1) near the Hammer of Thor jump.
Use the South Entrance on Red Bud trail, and try to stay in one of the left 2 lanes when you enter.
This is a great track view away from the crowd and close to your parking area.
Show your handicap parking tag and ask to be directed to Gate 1, straight ahead after leaving the gate lane booth.

Option 2:  Parking outside the Gate 4 entrance to the pro track area.  Use the South Entrance on Red Bud Trail.  This is the closest parking to the midway and vending areas, which lead to the track infield.

Option 3: Parking near Gate 6, accessible from the West Entrance on Main Street.  Walk to the midway and vending areas, which lead to the track infield.  (You can park a bit closer by using the South Entrance on Red Bud trail.)

If you’re camping, bring your handicap tag or sticker.  We’ll direct you to a camping row with the best access to handicap shuttle carts to take you to and from the track.  Call 269-695-6405 /email [email protected] for more information.


A variety of food and beverages are available at both the pro track and night track midway areas.
Food vendors generally include burgers, fries, nachos, pizza, burritos, BBQ, ice cream and other specialty items.
Beverages include water, soft drinks, Monster Energy drinks, coffee, iced tea, beer and seltzer beverages.
Some vendors, food and beer stands accept credit cards; all accept cash.  We’re not downtown … WiFi problems happen!  It’s a good idea to bring cash as a backup in case vendors have problems with credit card processing.


Parking fee is $10/day Thursday and Friday, and $15 for Saturday. No charge for motorcycle daily parking, or as an extra vehicle in a camp site.
Full event parking pass is $30 and includes all event days.


*No Stacycs!  We love those little things, but it’s too dangerous for little kids this weekend with all the traffic.

NO PIT BIKES/PERSONAL VEHICLES, including golf carts, scooters, ATVs, side-by-sides, etc. Don’t bring them this weekend; we will ask you to keep them loaded in the trailer. (Licensed motorcycles cannot be used as a pit vehicle.)  We offer golf cart shuttles for handicap transportation from camping and parking lots to the track area.


BICYCLES are welcome everywhere except the pro track area Saturday (inside the numbered gates) and the night track vending area/midway.  There’s no designated bicycle parking, and no racks to lock your bike.  (You can ride your bicycle to the pro track and infield on amateur days only.)

PETS: Allowed in your own Lot A campsite, if you have a camper with air conditioning. No pets inside any numbered gate, at the night track or in pro track spectator areas.  They must remain at your Lot A campsite.  This includes Companion and Emotional Support animals.  The only place friendly pets, Companion and Emotional Support animals are allowed is in your “L0t A” camp site.  No pets in tent sites. No pets in camping Lot B.  For the safety and comfort of all fans, we reserve the right to refuse entry or ask you to remove unfriendly or uncontrolled pets!
