The sands of Moto-X 338 have been a part of motocross history since 1972. After holding their first AMA National in 1976, ever since that first race famous berm shots have been etched in the minds of motocross enthusiast for generations. This infamous track has been home to many great battles and has been the stage for many motocross legends to show their strength and determination to conquer all mx challengers and sometimes mother nature.
Southwick National is both a rewarding and cruel track on the motocross series. Wild fluctuation of results have either made riders famous and broken others. There’s nothing worse than running out of gas while leading, just ask Bret Metcalf and Ben Townley. Recent years have been open-ended due to extreme weather conditions that have added more challenging conditions to an otherwise very challenging course. You either go very fast in the sand, or work all day to survive. There is no middle ground, no coasting – you have to be all in to win at Southwick.
