Open July 4th weekendMark Barnett and Glen Bates came to DP and worked on the track for a week. They added 35% more to it and then had to leave to go prep the Outdoor Nationals at Bud’s Creek in Maryland and then on to Colorado for the next National. They will be back at DP to finish our track before July 4th weekend. Their goal is that this track will be one of the best in the southeast with some unique built in features.Mark and Glen are the #1 track builders in the country! They maintain and have designed tracks for Bubba Stewart, Ricky Carmichael, Tim Ferry, and Windham, just to name a few. They are contracted to build most of the Pros and many of the top Amateur riders in the country! They also travel all over the world building tracks for top riders and design and maintain most of the top events in the country.Mark was one of the top American motocross racers in the early 1980s. He won three consecutive AMA 125cc national championships between 1980 and 1982.

In 1977 he started racing professionally when he turned sixteen, racing for the Fox Racing team. By 1978 he was hired by the Suzuki factory racing team. Along with his three national championships, he also won the 1981 AMA Supercross championship. After retiring from competition, he began to design Supercross and motocross tracks for pro riders like Ricky Carmichael and Ivan Tedesco. In 2000, Barnett was inducted into the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame.We feel very fortunate to have them to add Durhamtown to their list of Pro Tracks.See you soon….Mike and Staff
