Motocross is an event that can be enjoyed by all ages! The dirt bike races are a thrilling ride of jumps, turns, bumps, and other obstacles. And since they’re enjoyed outdoors, you’ll get to spend a day out in the fresh air watching racers do some truly death-defying feats and having a blast at the same time.
There are quite a few amenities for racegoers! The grounds have open-air festival seating, with a covered handicapped viewing area and covered Super Ticket Seating and VIP Viewing Areas. There are shaded picnic areas, and nearly 100% track viewing from a number of vantage points. There’s an interactive Sponsor Village, concessions, permanent restrooms (with flush toilets!), a children’s play area, free motorcycle parking with a gear check, and the event is simulcast on FM radio. You can find more information here.

On May 18, top motocross riders will head to Northern California for the Hangtown Motocross Classic. The race actually gets its name from California’s Gold Rush days - the first race was in 1969 in Placerville, which was nicknamed “Hangtown” in the 1800s. When the race outgrew the small town in the Sierras, it headed down the mountain to Rancho Cordova near Sacramento.
RV camping is a great way to experience a motocross event! There is dry RV camping available for the Hangtown Classic, and it’s a wonderfully convenient way to attend races. You can watch racing during the day, and head back to your RV at any point to grab a snack or take a nap or just have a break for a bit. You can choose between Fan Camping and Preferred Camping, which is closer to the track. Find out more information about camping at the Classic here.
