Current Subscribers Ride Free!

Southwick is opening up its doors to Racer X and Southwick fans on Sunday, August 28, 2011, the day after Round 10 of the Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship at Southwick.

Ride with Special Guests:

  • John Dowd
  • Jeff Emig
  • Doug Henry

Come play in the sand: Ride the very same track the pros battled on the previous day. Southwick is known for its wicked sand whoops and challenging layout tucked amid New England's picturesque foliage. Racer X wants you, our loyal and new subscribers, to spend the day enjoying this moto-landmark.


Current subscribers, please bring your September or October issue of Racer X with the mailing label attached, along with a form of identification, for your free rider entry.

If you are not a current subscriber or you would like to send a friend or family member a gift subscription, you can sign up on-site for $20. This includes a one-year (12 issues) subscription to Racer X Illustrated plus one rider entry.

All riders and spectators pay a $5 gate admission.


The track is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The concession stand will be open all day. Free bottled water will be available to all throughout the day; Rockstar Energy Drink will also have beverages while supplies last.


Following a thorough head count, riders will be grouped according to skill level: Beginner, Intermediate, or Expert. Only one group will be allowed on the track at a time, with riding sessions lasting thirty minutes each. Groups will rotate throughout the day, ensuring plenty of track time for everyone.

Riding Gear

All participants are required to wear appropriate riding gear.
