Gainesville, Florida - Unlimited Sports MX is pleased to announce that they have hired Mark Barnett (3 time AMA National Motocross Champion and Supercross Champion) to re-design and re-build the Gatorback supercross track for this year's Mini O's. For the past 16 years Barnett and his partner, Glen Bates, have built supercross tracks for many of the top professional and amateur racers in the US and abroad.Tim Ferry was also on hand during the re-build to assist Barnett in designing a very competitive amateur supercross track with safety in mind for every obstacle. Ferry had this to say, "Wyn asked me to come up and help with the design. The goal was to build a fun track for amateurs and keep it as safe as possible. After taking a few laps on the track, I can say we accomplished our goals"
Wyn Kern, president of Unlimited Sports MX commented "Barnett did such a great job on the supercross track, we turned him loose on the motocross track for some upgrades, re-design, also dumped a ton of sand back on the track."
