MECHANICSVILLE, Md. – As the newly-formed SuperMotocross World Championship makes its mark, Budds Creek Motocross Park gears up for the season’s critical penultimate round on August 19, continuing its legacy of hosting international racing talent.

Following its 50th anniversary, the Pro Motocross Championship enters a fresh chapter in 2023, featuring as the linchpin of the SuperMotocross World Championship. This season’s 11-round summer Pro Motocross will traverse 10 states to bestow two AMA National Champions with the sport’s most eminent title. One such honor is the annual race in Mechanicsville’s iconic Budds Creek Motocross Park, a venue renowned in the American motocross scene.

The venue has been a magnet for the world’s speediest racers for over three decades, offering an international display of the sport’s tenacity. With 30 years under its belt, the Yamaha Budds Creek National is set to host the 33rd race this year.

The SuperMotocross World Championship, comprising 31 races, marries the winter AMA Supercross Championship events – held in grand stadiums from January to May – and the summer Pro Motocross Championship events from late May to August. The culmination of these championships will be the inaugural SuperMotocross World Championship Playoffs and Final in September. The much-anticipated race at Budds Creek will mark the 10th event for the summer Pro Motocross and the 27th for the SuperMotocross World Championship.

Budds Creek’s uniqueness is evident in its track – its bright tan hue, sticky nature providing ample traction, shifting elevations, and off-camber turns, making it one of America’s most challenging motocross tracks.
