Track Profile

There might not be a better place to see the grandeur of the full display of the sport of motocross than Greene County’s High Point Raceway. This track weaves its way around a deep valley, treating the riders to constant elevation changes. From the slippery off-camber corners to the high-speed runs to and from the valley floor, no section of this track is completely flat, which makes it a true challenge and fun racetrack. But what makes it tough for the athletes makes it great for the spectators, because several vantage points atop the valley offer full views of the track below. Further, High Point’s jumps were engineered to sit right in front of the main spectator areas, letting fans get close while they watch the riders go big. Some call it moto theater—and it’s a show filled with ups and downs, twists and turns.

Where did it all start?  In the fall of 1976 brothers Jack and Carroll Holbert invited off-road pioneer Dave Coombs Sr. out to their family farm in Mt. Morris, Pennsylvania, to see if he wanted to build a motocross track there. High Point Raceway was founded shortly thereafter with the help in design by the visiting Maico factory team from Europe. Since then High Point has been among the pillars of American motocross, hosting a round of the AMA Po Motocross Championship every year since 1977, and countless off-road, regional and local motocross events. 

What’s new? This year fans will be treated to a brand-new layout. Gone is the iconic uphill start. New is a massive first turn sweeper, Finish Line and brand new hydraulic starting gate, providing fans with longer and better views of the famous racetrack. We moved more than 150,000 cubic yards of dirt to bring our racers and fans this new experience. The renovations will provide a better starting grid, as well as an enhanced podium location and celebration with a stadium feel. 

Roam from vantage point to vantage point around the circuit, and experience the action from multiple areas. But no matter where you end up, you will be able to see nearly 100% of the race action, as High Point has a unique amphitheater design. And just as unique as the racetrack are the fans. Our fans are the best!  They are tough, hardy and fun-spirited; they enjoy the outdoors and love their moto!  High Point fans are Steeler fans, Pirate fans and Penguin fans, which makes this southeastern Pennsylvania venue the perfect place to spend Father’s Day.

So take your dad to the races this summer and celebrate 41 years of great racing memories at High Point with a few thousand of your friends!

Motocross Racing is a family activity, and one of the most exciting features is the opportunity to camp out and have fun with your family and friends. However, if you are staying overnight in an RV or vehicle, or using a generator, you need to be aware of the dangers of Carbon Monoxide (CO) Poisoning. CO is a poisonous, colorless, odorless and tasteless gas that can be released when burning gasoline, kerosene, oil, propane or wood.

Mind your vehicle and generator exhaust while in close proximity to your family and neighbors. Do not place your generator directly under a slide-out or under your vehicle, where the fumes can seep into the camper. Make sure all exhaust fumes are properly and fully vented, so that they do not become trapped or seep into your sleeping quarters. When sleeping in a van, car or truck, make sure the exhaust is unobstructed if you run the engine for heat. Even when sleeping outdoors under the stars, make sure you are not too close to an exhaust. Devastating consequences can result without proper ventilation.

What to do if you suspect someone has been poisoned:

When you suspect CO poisoning, promptly taking the following actions can save lives:

  • Move the victim immediately to fresh air in an open area
  • Call 911 and notify track officials immediately.
  • Administer CPR if the victim has stopped breathing. (Be careful not to expose yourself to fatal levels of CO poisoning when administering CPR).

Know the dangers of Carbon Monoxide poisoning. For more information, please visit the United States Environmental Protection Agency page on Carbon Monoxide.
