Midwest motocross riders aren't blessed with favorable weather year-round like the our friends on the West Coast. When the temperatures aren't freezing and the skies are dry, you can count on us squeezing out every ounce of track time possible. With fewer ridable months, it makes sense that states like Iowa might have fewer tracks, but that doesn't make them any less amazing. Here are our top five Iowa motocross tracks.
Top 5 Iowa MX Tracks
Westfair MX - Council Bluffs, IA
Just over ten miles west of downtown Omaha, Nebraska, Iowa's Westfair Fairgounds (Westfair MX) is a favorite of both Nebraskans and Iowans. Managed by volunteers, Westfair's track weaves up and down hills, and in-and-out of trees making the track a joy to ride. Being so close to Nebraska's biggest city makes Westfair the home track for most riders from the state, which means you can count on plenty of friendly competition and great practice for racing larger groups.
Riverside Raceway - Winterset, IA
It's not uncommon to find us racing on semi-frozen ground, or swimming in gallons of sweat between motos, but we'll take what we can get, and Riverside Raceway is great at making it all worth it. For Midwest riders, this track is synonymous with great moto events like the Justin Brayton Shootout and Vurb Moto Shred Tour. Vets can also participate in the Loretta Lynn Regional here.
Oak Ridge MX - Garwin, IA
Oak Ridge MX is nestled in the rolling hills of Tama County, Iowa, and accommodates all skill levels. The facility includes a large track for 50cc to 450cc and two small tracks for pit bike riding. Oak Ridge has hosted major events including Loretta Lynn Qualifiers, AMA Featured Events, and Pro AMs. The elevation change makes this a must-ride if you're in the area.
Sandy Corners MX - Ionia, IA
Open seven days a week, Sandy Corners MX is a practice track in Ionia. The definition of a country track, Sandy Corners can be found in the northeast corner of Iowa, an hour-and-a-half north of Cedar Rapids and equal distance south of Rochester, Minnesota. Riders love the care and attention put into this track saying, "The owner is a great dude and really tries to make sure everyone has a good time."
Troll Village MX - Logan, IA
The new kid on the block! Troll Village is a beautiful track built by DPMX in Logan, IA. The infamous bluffs are the best part of any Western Iowa track, and Troll Village delivers! Equipped with big jumps and a great flow, they also have a kids track and a great crew ready to host moto fans of all ages and skill-levels.
