This weekend Spring Creek MX Park in Millville, MN, will host round seven of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, sanctioned by AMA Pro Racing.
Spring Creek has been hosting the national circuit for 29 years, with the first race being held on August 28, 1983. It was won by American Honda rider Bob Hannah. The track is home to many iconic obstacles including the “Holy Schmit” jump, sand whoops and the longest start straight in the series. American Honda has 6 wins in both classes, with the last win being Trey Canard on his CRF250R in 2010. In the 11 years that the track hosted the 500cc national, Honda won all but one event.
“Spring Creek is a brutal track with huge sand whoops and big jumps,” says Team Honda Muscle Milk’s Justin Brayton. “It is usually really hot and humid so conditioning and being hydrated is really critical. The track has a combination of different conditions, in certain sections it’s really sandy and in others it’s harder packed with deep ruts. This is my favorite track because it is close to home so a bunch of my friends and family come out to watch. I grew up riding here and coming to this national to watch my hero’s like Jeremy McGrath race.”
