High Point Raceway was established in 1976 by brothers Jack and Carol Holbert. They contacted race promoter Dave Coombs hoping that they could build a motocross track on their family farm. Coombs did break ground on the track and later, after the Maico Factory Racing team visited and gave their feedback, the track underwent renovations. Since then, the basic layout has remained the same, with the only changes being made within the existing facility.
It is one of the premier motocross racing facilities on the national circuit. High Point hosts rounds of the Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship and the Rocky Mountain ATV/MC AMA Loretta Lynn Area Qualifier.
There might not be a better place to see the grandeur of the full display of the sport of motocross than Greene County’s High Point Raceway. This track weaves its way around a deep valley, treating the riders to constant elevation changes. From the slippery off-camber corners to the high-speed runs to and from the valley floor, no section of this track is completely flat, which makes it a true challenge and fun racetrack. But what makes it tough for the athletes makes it great for the spectators, because several vantage points atop the valley offer full views of the track below. Further, High Point’s jumps were engineered to sit right in front of the main spectator areas, letting fans get close while they watch the riders go big. Some call it moto theater—and it’s a show filled with ups and downs, twists and turns.
