Monster Energy Mammoth Mountain Motocross continues this weekend

Posted By: The Ski Channel on June 23, 2010 6:54 pm

Mammoth Mountain’s company motto is to “Play Big,” and few sports embody that idea better than motocross.

Starting all the way back in 1968, Don Rake and some buddies decided to put on a motocross in Mammoth Lakes, California. They constructed a world-class track 8,000 feet up in the Sierra Nevada Mountain range. Mammoth founder Dave McCoy came along and offered the backing of his Mammoth Mountain Ski Area and the rest is history.

Each summer racers flocked to Mammoth for the oldest continuous running motocross event in the USA. The track seen few changes over the years, but the fun hasn’t!

For Summer 2010, Mammoth added the pre-qualifying series called The Monster Energy Road to Mammoth, where riders from all over the West battle it out at tracks from Arizona to California to qualify for the finals: The Monster Energy Mammoth Motocross.

The Monster Energy Mammoth Motocross isn’t just an event for professional riders, it’s an event for the entire family! With junior races at the track and parties/entertainment in the Village, this years event is not to be missed!
