Welcome to the Glen Helen National in San Bernardino, CA. This historic race track made its return in 2014 to the circuit and will serve as the second round of the 2018 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, sanctioned by AMA Pro Racing.
Southern California doesn’t just have its own place in motocross—it IS motocross. The roots here are deep, from long-gone tracks that once hosted the biggest events in the sport, to all the riders, teams and sponsors who live in the area. With Glen Helen Raceway serving as the annual SoCal stop in Lucas Oil Pro Motocross, there’s pressure to sum up everything from the center of the motocross universe in one big day at the races—and it delivers.
You can sum up that summation with one simple word: big. Glen Helen’s track is supersized motocross. The start straightaway is as long and fast as anything you’ll see, the Talladega first turn is the widest and steepest in all of the sport, and the up and downhills are so huge they’re not even hills, they’re mountains!
Southern California was a big part of America’s introduction to motocross nearly fifty years ago, and Glen Helen is a great display piece for how far the sport has evolved. Today’s riders and bikes can do incredible things, and when unleashed on a massive playground like Glen Helen, there’s a full display of not only the upper limits of the sport, but the upper limits of motorsports and athletic competition of any kind. Those hills, those jumps, these speeds…there’s pressure on Glen Helen to deliver, but it always comes up big.
