Getting stared in BMX racing is super easy. Because BMX racing is an individual sport, there’s no better time to start riding and racing than right now. You don’t need to call or sign up before you go to the track. In fact all you need to get started is your bike, long pants and a long sleeve shirt, and any approved bicycle helmet. Whatever you’re riding now will do fine.
Consider stopping by the track on a practice day and we’ll be more than happy to answer all your questions and get your rider going. You can find further information about getting started in racing on the USA BMX website.

Can I try without joining?
You sure can! You may ride the track on a day only basis during practice if your parents accompany you and sign a waiver of liability.
What equipment will I need to ride the track?
You will need a full face helmet, long pants, long sleeved shirt, closed toe shoes, and a bike (BMX race style is prefered but we can make any BMX style or youth bike work). If you don’t have a full face helmet, you may use one of our loaner helmets. Non-required options include: gloves, elbow pads, knee pads, and a chest protector.

What if I can not race every day?
You may race as often or as seldom as your schedule permits. You pay only when you show up for a practice or race. Also, if you sign up with a USA BMX membership, you may race or practice at other USA BMX sanctioned tracks.
Who will I race against?
You will race against riders of your own age and ability from ages 3-63. Riders are divided into 3 main classes: Novice, Intermediate, and Expert. The Novice class is made to help a rider learn the techniques of BMX racing. As a rider gains experience, they will move up to the next class. Please ask for details about classes and move up points since there is a lot involved in this process.
Can I help out?
YES!!! We welcome all help. The track is run by volunteers and without them, our track can not function. We are a non-profit group needing help. Please request a volunteer form and indicate what area(s) you are willing to help, i.e. maintenance, scorer, corner marshal (adults please), starters, stagers, fundraising, etc.
Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions. We hope to see you at the track!
