La Crescent Wine & Spirit Spring Creek National
Spring Creek MX Park - Millville, Minn. - July 19

  • Spring Creek has hosted a Lucas Oil Pro Motocross National since 1983. It boasts several of the most iconic obstacles in the sport, including the sand whoops and the "Holy Schmit" jump named for late local legend Donny Schmit. The track also has the longest start straight on the schedule.
  • "Mount Martin" is Spring Creek's newest obstacle, measuring at 350 feet of total elevation.
