A: Child tickets are for ages 6 to 12.
Q: Do the little ones get in free?

Q: I just purchased 2 Adult and 2 Child VIP Tickets. The tickets I printed are all in my name, does that matter? Should I edit the tickets and type in the contact info and re-print for all attendees?
A: You do not need to change any information on the tickets. All of your tickets will work at the gate and attendees do not need to be together to enter. All attendees must sign a release form before entering.
Q: Where can I purchase a Pit Pass?
A: There are two types of Pit Passes available to you: the Racer X All Day Pit Pass and the Early Entry Pit Pass. You can purchase Racer X Pit Passes online in advance as they generally sell out. Early Entry pit passes are sold online in advance, as well as on-site at the event. Racer X Pit Passes are good for all day Pro Pit access while Early Entry Pit Passes are only valid on Saturday from 9am until noon. There is limited availability on both types of Pit Passes.
Q: Will the Racer X Pit Pass get me into the event?
A: Yes, you must redeem your Racer X Pit Pass at Will Call. You will receive a wristband that is good for entry and pit-access from 9am-6pm.
Q: I purchased multiple Racer X Pit Passes online. Can I pick them up for family or friends if they’re not with me at the booth?
A: No. Everyone using a Racer X Pit Pass must be present at Will Call in order to obtain his or her own wristband. A staff member will put on each person’s wristband after a release form has been signed (if the recipient is under 18, Minor Release Form will have to be filled out by an adult).
Q: Are we allowed to bring an ice cooler with food and drinks?
A: Yes, you are allowed to bring in a cooler but you MAY NOT bring in alcohol. NO GLASS bottles are allowed and there is NO ALCOHOL ALLOWED IN THE PRO PITS.
Q: Can we bring chairs? Can we set up a tent or EZ up?
A: Yes, you can bring chairs. You can bring a tent but there will be a designated area for tents or EZ-ups as they impede viewing for other fans. We do not allow tents or EZ-ups within 40' of the track fence.
Q: Can my dog come to the races?
A: Dogs are NOT allowed National weekend at the track.
Q: My printer broke. Can I use my smart phone to get in?

A: At the time of this writing, camping will only be available on Saturday night for Sunday’s Amateur event. We will update our web site if this changes.

The Wick! Motocross’ most famous sandbox returns to greet racers with its classic ultra-rough terrain, a never-ending bump fest that just gets deeper and tougher as the day goes on. A sand track is an entirely different animal, and if the riders aren’t prepared, it will eat them up.
The key to The Wick is adapting to its ever-shifting terrain. Fans should get there early to see how smooth the track looks before practice begins, and then track how quickly the bumps begin to form. By the end of practice, the place is totally whooped out, and they only get deeper during the motos. The smartest riders will keep searching for smoother lines, hitting the untouched spots until they get rough, then finding new ground again somewhere else. Making these decisions while your heart, lungs, arms and legs are screaming is something only the toughest and fittest can do.
Southwick is so unique that it favors local riders more than any other track. They know where the good lines will develop, and they’ll have The Wick faithful pushing them to dig deep late in the motos. Be sure to scan the hometown listings for each rider on the entry list—someone you’ve never heard of might be in contention for a podium.
For all of its gnarliness, Southwick is nestled right in the middle of a very quaint downtown. You’ll be surprised to find a legendary motocross track nestled right up against baseball fields and an American Legion post, but all of that just adds to an experience unlike any other.
