Fernley MX

Thursday, July 11, 2019

Other Names

Fernley MX Track, Fernly MX, Sand Box

Last Known StatusOpen

This is mostly a local motocross track, normally open for practice, and occasionally closed for amateur races. The track changes regularly and is groomed only for races, so it is often dry and hard, with no shade. There is a starting gate, some portable restrooms, and a handful of desert trails in the surrounding valley floor - everything you need, but nothing more.

The track is casual, with no fees or restrictions on type of bike/ATV or engine size. A Dunlop 756, 753 or a Bridgestone M401 or M404 are the recommended tires of choice.

The area is developed and maintained by the non-profit group Nevada Old Timers Motocross Club. Pay them a visit at www.otmxnevada.com
