On February 12th, 2016 Ryan and Krista’s home caught fire around 12:30PM. The fire was contained and part of the home was saved and just had some heavy smoke damage. Later a second fire broke out and caused more damage to the remaining portion. Most of the house is destroyed and they lost nearly everything. Thankfully nobody was hurt and material things can be replaced but they need help getting back on their feet. If you cannot donate please share this and help raise awareness!

WEST VIRGINIA INDOOR MOTOCROSS CHAMPIONSHIP BIG SANDY SUPERSTORE ARENA

The Action Sports Indoor Motocross Championship plays host to thousands of motocross race fans and hundreds of amateur competitors beginning at 5 years old on 50cc mini bikes and an even more talented group of professional riders. Many of our past riders including National Supercross and Motocross Champions have achieved national stardom after competing in Action Sports events; could you be the next?

Twelve hundred cubic yards of dirt will be used to construct the race track. Double, triple and tabletop jumps along with whoop de doos or rockers will keep the riders flying through the air and battling bar to bar all weekend long.

The pits open for rider registration Friday & Saturday morning at 9 AM. Practice begins at 11 AM, Pro practice at 2:00, opening ceremonies at 7:00 PM and racing begins at 7:30. Racing usually lasts 2-1/2 to 3 hours. Pit passes for mechanics and family members are $20 per day. (Registered riders do not need a pit pass.) Pit passes allow all day access to the arena, grand stands and pit area. For your convenience a section of grandstands nearest the pit area will be reserved for pit pass holders, however you will be able to sit in any available seat.

After pro practice (approximately 3:00 PM) the entire building, including the pits will be cleared. The building will reopen to riders and those with pit passes at 6:15 PM each night. The building will close 1/2 hour after the event. Riders may leave their bike in the arena pits over night at their own risk.

All ticket holder seats this year are general admission (first come first serve). Tickets are available in advance at ticketmaster.com, charge by phone at 1-800-745-3000. Advance and day of show tickets are available at the arena box office with no additional fees (BEST DEAL). Ticket holders are not permitted in the pits at any time and are not admitted into the arena until 6:30 PM when the spectator doors open.

The Action Sports Indoor Motocross series began in 1984 and grew into a 15 round series through 1999 in Ohio, West Virginia and Kentucky. Our goal is to produce rider friendly, top quality events where youth, amateur and professional riders can compete in front of thousands of spectators and their families.

Track Profile

In the early 1970’s, enterprising motocross race promoter Dave Coombs Sr. went on the search for the perfect motocross track. He had tried a couple of tracks in West Virginia that weren’t big enough, and then one in Keyser’s Ridge, Maryland, but that track’s rocky soil didn’t find favor with the riders. In the fall of 1976, he movied his races to Mount Morris, Pennsylvania, just across the state line above Morgantown, West Virginia, using the rich soil of a farm owned by the Jack and Carol Holbert families, who were racers themselves.

High Point Raceway opened in September ’76, but the originial layout would soon change. Shortly after opening, the Maico factory team stopped by looking for a place to practice while following the Trans-AMA Series, and they decided to revamp the track layout to make it more European, incorporating more hills and off-camber turns. Sylvain Beboers, Adolf Weil, and Hans Maisch laid down fallen tree branches and built small rock piles to ouline where they should go. In doing so, they created the basic design that High Point uses to this day.

The High Point circuit uses the land’s natural elevation to create uphill double and triple jumps and long sweeping corners in a natural ampitheater setting. To go fast on this highly regarded track today, riders have to dial in skills that were perfected three decades ago. But High Point, like the sport itself, has gone through changes over the years – most of them aimed at making a more fan-friendly track that also challenges the ever-evolving equipment modern race teams bring to Lucas Oil Pro Motocross. Trees were cleared from around the facility so fans can view nearly 100 percent of the track from a variety of vantage points, and the bigger jumps were put right in view of the largest spectator areas. In 2008, the track received a makeover courtesy of star track builder, Mark Peters, resulting in more hang-time for the riders. With a mix of the old school and the new, High Point is a true challenge for the racers and remains one of the most popular tracks in the entire sport.

The motocross world lost Dave Coombs Sr. on August 3, 1998, after a long battle with leukemia, but his family and the Holberts continue to produce the High Point National in his honor. The family bisiness, MX Sports, is also the driving force behind the AMA Amateur National Motocross Championships at Loretta Lynn’s Ranch, the Grand National Cross Country Series, the AMA Pro ATV Series, and now the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship. And in a move that would make “Big Dave” proud, the first live network television broadcast of an AMA Pro Motocross race took place on June 13, 2009, with the High Point National being featured live on NBC a first for professional motocross in America.
