Track Profille

There’s a proud history for motocross in the Southeast, and much of that history unfolded on the soil of Muddy Creek Raceway. The track only joined the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross schedule in 2013, but many of the top riders on the circuit were already familiar with it from days spent racing there in the amateur ranks.

Even at the pro National, the track offers its family-friendly feel. From the small towns surrounding the track to the deep rows of trucks, trailers and motorhomes in the amateur pits, Muddy Creek Raceway retains its familiar feel. Well, until the gate drops, and today’s top riders and equipment slice up the track, pushing the pace, jumping higher and faster than ever before. That’s when you know this track is ready for its date on the big stage.

And what a stage it is! Muddy Creek weaves in and out of a valley, and offers several tight 180-degree turns that are perfect for passing. On the high speed sections, riders air out huge jumps, from a series of table tops in front of the spectators, to The Bomber uphill triple, the obstacles on pro day aren’t for the faint of heart. The track offers such good racing that several motos have come down to the final turn of the last lap. If you come to witness some Southeastern motocross history first hand, you won’t be disappointed.

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.
