Sunshine Motocross

Alt Names

Pinellas Park, Sunshine MX

Last Known StatusDestroyed

This motocross park at one time offered a 1.5 mile long main track and a separate peewee track but closed in 2015 and has since been removed. The main track had a nice mix of sand, clay and a few hard pack sections. The peewee track was located on the other side of the staging area and was in the shape of an oval with mild jumps and wide turns.

Weekly motocross lessons and occasional race events were hosted. This listing will remain up for historical purposes and to help prevent a wasted trip.

The peewee track formed a long oval and had a small pond in the center. The jumps were very mild and the turns were wide.
