Our 35th Annual Pro National is Round 3 of the 12-round AMA Professional Motocross Championship Series June 11, 2011 and will be featuring reigning National Pro MX Champion, and AMA Supercross Series Champion Ryan Dungey.
Since 1976, High Point Raceway, nestled in the scenic mountains of south-western Pennsylvania near Mt. Morris, has challenged the world's fastest motocross athletes. Generations have enjoyed the thrill that only pro motocross fans can lay claim to.
The High Point circuit uses the land’s natural elevation to create uphill double- and triple jumps and long sweeping corners in a natural amphitheater setting. To go fast on this highly regarded motocross 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 MX track that also challenges the ever-evolving equipment modern race teams bring to Lucas Oil AMA 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 motocross track received a makeover courtesy of star track builder Marc 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 motocross tracks in the entire sport.
