Millcreek got a huge facelift for this weekend’s AMA Summer Classic. In what will be the 20th year of racing at the famous Millcreek MX Park in Pell City, Alabama, track owner Alex McWilliams brought in the crew from 402 Track and Trails to help with the rebuild.
“With the loaded up spring racing schedule each year, Millcreek chose to relocate and rebrand the long running AMA Spring Classic (now the AMA Summer Classic) to give all racers a more relaxed stress free racing event,” McWilliams told Vurb. “With school out and with regionals concluded, the AMA Summer Classic will be the perfect event to tune up before Loretta’s or help keep everyone in race shape for the rest of the season. The track is currently going through a face lift and renovation with a collaboration between the well-known track artist 402 Track and Trails (Brad Stone) and the Millcreek crew featuring Greg Cole. The newly renovated track will be even better than before. Through these gates have passed many pro and amateur racers, present, past and future. Ricky Carmichael, Cooper Webb, Justin Barcia, Malcom Stewart, Adam Cianciarulo, and more have all diced it up here at Millcreek. Sign up is open, long competitive motos will be featured, and great track changes by 402. We look forward in seeing everyone July 17,18 and 19.”
Check out some of the renovations:
With the 2020 Monster Energy Amateur National Motocross Championship at Loretta Lynn’s (damn, that’s a mouthful) kicking off in August, we’re a bit out of practice. Yes, camera dudes need practice too. So, we’re dusting off the cobwebs and hitting our own version of a Regional Qualifier at one of our all-time favorite tracks, Millcreek. That’s right, we’ll be there all weekend ripping cold beers after motos, slinging t-shirts like candy and seeing if we remember how to cover some of the fastest young talent the Southeast has to offer.
