Dirt Wurx to Rebuild Motoplayground Mag Track

MONROE, N.Y. – Dirt Wurx’s Rich Winkler and crew - the world’s premier MX/SX track design and construction company - will be back at Motoplayground Magazine headquarters this coming spring to do a major overhaul on the track they originally built on the popular amateur motocross magazine’s grounds some three years ago.

When they’re not constructing the world’s most visible competition tracks on the Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, tour, Winkler and Dirt Wurx’s heavy equipment operating wizards have carved out many memorable motocross tracks all over the planet - for both private and public usage. And the plan at the Motoplayground compound is to upgrade the existing motocross track, including everything from adding new features and upgrading the already challenging obstacles, to designing and constructing a new drainage system.

“The nice thing about the guys at Motoplayground is that they really get it. They understand how Dirt Wurx takes into consideration the raw layout of the property and how we all work together with a rider’s eye to best exploit the existing features,” said Winkler. “It’s important to construct a track that not only challenges some of the United States’ best up-and-coming amateur racers that stop by on a daily basis, but also a track that photographs well as it’ll be featured prominently throughout both Motoplayground Magazine and The Pickle Motocross Illustrated every month.”

Dubbed “The Dirt Wurx Track @ Motoplayground,” the layout will be a platform for numerous MX features that Dirt Wurx has perfected over the past two decades in stadiums around the world, yet mirroring something completely available to those wishing to have a genuine Dirt Wurx track built on their property at a surprisingly affordable price.

“Having the geographically central location that we do, we get a TON of families coming through here on there way to events who not only stop by to tour the offices, but also put in some laps on the track as well,” said Motoplayground’s Harold Martin. “And quite often these people are truly stunned when I tell them that, when they’re not building the AMA Supercross tracks, Dirt Wurx actually builds quite a few of these private tracks around the country.”

Martin continued: “With our set-up out here, we're very fortunate in that we're really able to live and breathe the sport of amateur motocross. So the whole idea behind bringing Dirt Wurx out here in the first place was to build a track at our compound that would not only give us an incredible test facility right outside the front door, but also give Dirt Wurx an ideal location to showcase how they can put their global track building expertise to work at a local level, specifically with the amateur racers of our sport in mind.”

Construction on the new Dirt Wurx Track @ Motoplayground is slated for late March/early April. To learn more about Motoplayground Magazine and The Pickle Motocross Illustrated you can log onto www.motoplayground.com
