A new American Motorcyclist Association-sanctioned motocross track is being built in Ross County in Ohio, according to a published report.
The track is expected to open in 2011, with two AMA-sanctioned races scheduled for the same year. Ross County is located in south central Ohio.
“The race dates are set,” Chris Scott, the voice of the events at the new track, told the Chillicothe Gazette. “May 14 and 15, and then July 9 and 10. This is a big deal for motocross in this area, and it’s going to give riders and fans a new place in the Midwest that’s going to be top of the line.”
The track will be located adjacent to the Ross County Fairgrounds off Ohio 207. Because of its proximity to the fairgrounds, it will have access to camping, utilities and WiFi Internet service. The track will be specific to motocross and will sit in AMA District 11, which includes 44 counties in Ohio, Scott said.
