Haspin Acres entering busy season

Haspin Acres Off-Road & Motocross Park, located at 21208 Laurel Road, Laurel, is the oldest offroad park in the Midwest, reports the Web site “Starting in 1970 it was a haven for motorcyclists. Fea­turing MX racing and Hare Scrambles in the early days, we developed a rich history in the sport. For many years we have catered to the offroad rider who wanted to trail ride. With 750 acres, you could pay admission and ride to your heart’s content.”

The park is open 365 days a year. Riding is permitted between dawn and dusk. A helmet is required for safety. A person at any skill level can successfully find a chal­lenge. The ultimate challenge is “Devil’s Backbone.”

The two motocross tracks are different. One is a smaller pee­wee supercross style track that consists of tight corners, lower speeds and more jumps for the size, which makes it more technical. The other is a large motocross style track, which is more wide open, with much higher speeds and larger jumps.

The race schedule is usually from spring to fall. Contests in­clude motocross and flat drags. Dirt drag racing is a very popular event at Haspin Acres with racers coming from all around to compete, transporting everything from stock four-wheelers and bikes to the handcrafted dirt dragsters and buggies.

Upcoming competitions, according to the Web site:

• June 18-22, Trike Fest

• June 22, MX and Drag Racing

• July 5, Jamboree Weekend

• July 25-27, Mud-Show & Shine Friday, Hill Climb Poker Run & Live Music Saturday, More Mud Bog Sunday

• Aug. 2, MX Racing

• Aug. 3, Mud Bog

• Aug. 23-24 and Aug. 30-31, MX and Drag Racing.
