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. 

In 2017 High Point underwent major changes. 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 provided 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 42 years of great racing memories at High Point with a few thousand of your friends!
