#HangtownMX

TRACK BIO

Established: 1972

Hangtown says “Motocross Starts Here,” and that’s true for several reasons. The track is the traditional opener for the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship each year, but it also reaches deep into the history books as one of the oldest continuing events in American dirt bike racing. Hangtown was already well established when the Nationals began, first at the old track in nearby Plymouth, and then later moving to today’s modern facility inside the Prairie City State Vehicular Recreation Area.

Hangtown is the only track on the circuit run inside a real state park—you’ll notice off-road trails stretching for miles into the distance as well as park rangers patrolling the facility. The track also features great sightlines, as riders cross up and down the hillside in front of the fans. You can see nearly 100 percent of the track from any vantage point.

The track here is beautiful and perfect when the day begins—high noon at Hangtown—and the opening ceremonies feel like a part of history, laced with bits of Americana and the Old West. As soon as the gate drops and the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship begins, though, it all changes in an instant. The pageantry quickly cedes to reality: rough, nasty, square-edged motocross chop, deep ruts, heavy roost, steep climbs, and high-speed descents. Only the toughest will come out of Hangtown with their title hopes alive.
