TRACK BIO

Established: 1974

Do you love motocross? Do you love America? Do you love people who love motocross and America? If you do, you haven’t lived until you’ve experienced the full RedBuuuuud! experience.

RedBud is the central stop of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship in scheduling, geography, and overall vibe. Motocross does its July Fourth holiday right, rocking with great racing, an amazing track, and the heartiest gang of motocross fans you’ll see anywhere. The fun rages all weekend, culminating with an absolutely bonkers podium celebration with fans piled up a hundred deep at the fence. Forget the guy standing in the center of the podium—everyone is a winner if they’re hanging at RedBud on Independence Day weekend!

RedBud’s atmosphere is legendary, but it’s all powered by the amazing track, which somehow gets better each year. Off in the corner of the property sits a nearly limitless supply of sand, and hundreds of truckloads have been mixed into the soil to create a surface that’s super rough but delivers maximum traction. It also allows new obstacles to be shaped and sorted each year, headlined by one of the most famous jumps in all of motocross, LaRocco’s Leap—which is of course set right next to big grandstands filled with motocross lovers chanting “USA! USA!” Big air, big celebrations, and a big weekend for the sport. It’s all about RedBuuuuud!
