Michigan's 33 MotoSports Park Ready For Business
We hear so much bad news about ATV and off-road trails and ride areas being shut down, it’s nice to have a little good news to report. How good? How about an 80-acre complex with three different tracks, concessions and covered viewing areas that’s open for business starting May 5?
33 MotoSports Park is located in Northern Michigan and looks to be well on its way to being one of the best facilities in the country that caters to ATVs, UTVs, snowmobiles and dirt bikes. Even more impressive is that it has all been constructed since October of 2011! This includes the design of three unique tracks, developing jumps, building the concession and registration facility with a full patio, fencing in infield and staging areas, and leveling, lime stoning and rolling out the parking area. Wow!
Undoubtedly the biggest attraction for riders is the range of the tracks. Three tracks, with varying degrees of obstacles and jumps, have been developed for all sizes of machines and all skill levels. Track One is for higher cc machines and advanced level riders. Track Two is for intermediate riders with medium sized bikes and quads. Track Three is designed for small cc machines and beginner riders.
The Park will be open every weekend from May to October, with a total of 15 events scheduled, as well as 55 practice sessions including Tuesdays and Thursdays through July and August, with snowmobile racing beginning this winter. As well, 33 MotoSports Park will be the new home of the Mud Bogs and Mud Drags that will be conducted in July and September.
If you happen to be in the area, 33 MotoSports Park is hosting a free practice day on May 5. Visit 33MotoSportsPark.com for more information.
