Motocross: New California MX Track Opening

Dirt Bike News

A new Motocross facility in Anza, Calif., will have a grand opening Aug. 20-22. This 700-acre facility will be called "The Ranch," and is designed and built by Marc Peters of

Five motocross tracks with terrain for all rider’s capabilities and equipment, from the Main track with four-five lines through every corner and 36 ft wide straight a ways. The track carved out of a natural hillside in the mesquite chaparral (green year round) is 2:10 for a good Professional rider.

The "Main Track" at The Ranch has an East Coast National track feel brought to the West Coast. Marc Peters has been building National Tracks for the past 4 years for MXSports.

The "Main Track" at The Ranch has been designed with elements of High Point, Steel City, Bud’s Creek, and Red Bud National Tracks. There are big uphills and downhills, off cambers, step-ups, and great rhythm sections.

The track will be prepped and groomed at the same professional level you see before National races like Steel City or High Point (Mount Morris), to give you the ultimate riding experience.

The 1960s track is a European style, laid out by Preston Petty & Stu Peters, again in the natural hillside, up and down lanes with sweeping corners and "NO" jumps. This track will take you back in time.

The 1980s Motocross track is a combination of Carlsbad Raceway, Saddleback Park, and Indian Dunes. It is located on the flats with sand wash sections and hillside with great safe landings, tabletops that you can jump or just ride over, 40-foot corners and 36 feet wide straight a ways. There will be a 65/85cc track and a PeeWee track. Both are technical, safe and fun for all riders.

There are flat pit areas for camping, plus great viewing areas for spectators and family. This new Motocross complex is 2.9 miles past the Cahuilla Casino on State Highway 371 going (North), to Bautista Road go Right (East) for 1.5 miles to "The Ranch".

"The Ranch" will be open the 3rd & 5th (three months of the year have a fifth weekend) weekends of the month on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Prepped and watered tracks each day and $25.00 per bike, per day, per rider to practice, Spectators free for Practice and $10 to over-night park (no hook-ups) per vehicle/motor home. Operating hours will be 8am to 4pm.
