Glen Helen Track Map 2014

Glen Helen Raceway Completes the New Track Design for ****2014 Red Bull Glen Helen National on May 24

New Design Embraces the Track's Iconic Features, While Adding Much More

MORGANTOWN, W. Va. (May 12, 2014) - In less than two weeks, the world's fastest professional motocross racers will descend upon Southern California's Glen Helen Raceway for the highly anticipated start to the 2014 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, sanctioned by AMA Pro Racing. The Red Bull Glen Helen National, taking place on Saturday, May 24, will feature an all-new track design and layout, incorporating the track's most notorious and iconic obstacles, while also providing several new elements to push the stars of the sport to their limits.

Glen Helen Raceway makes its return to the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship schedule for the first time since 2009, with longtime Glen Helen partner Jody Weisel once again the creative mind behind the design and layout of the national track. Renowned track builder Karl Scanlon was again tapped to execute Weisel's design and has been hard at work with his team for many weeks, completing the track today with a little less than two weeks until the season opener in San Bernardino, California.

With an immense facility that features a short-course off-road track, autocross course, miles of off-road trails, three supercross tracks and perhaps the largest motocross circuit in the country, Glen Helen has an affinity for challenging riders with a one-of-a-kind layout. During the track's 16-year duration as a round of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, it cemented itself as one of the most unique, diverse, and challenging motocross tracks on the planet.

"Glen Helen means motocross in Southern California and everyone involved with the series is thrilled to be returning again," said Davey Coombs, President of MX Sports Pro Racing. "To lead off the series with a track as challenging and spectacular as Glen Helen means that we're going to know right away who's ready to compete for the championship."

The 2014 track has been broken down into 17 major sections that feature dramatic elevation changes, high speed and high technicality, various terrain, and of course the kind of flair that only can be found at Glen Helen. Iconic elements like the longest start straight in the series, "Talledaga" first turn, "Mt. Saint Helen," and "Saddleback Ridge" will continue to add to the legacy of Glen Helen, while new obstacles like the "Velodrome" and a revamped sand section are sure to provide tons of excitement for riders and fans alike. The addition of the "Fan Central" area for spectators will provide an exhilarating experience for those in attendance thanks to rally towels that will be handed out for the sole purpose of cheering on the athletes and living up to the track's motto "Feel the Speed!"

The 2014 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship will kick off Saturday, May 24 in San Bernardino, Calif. with the return of the Red Bull Glen Helen National. For more information or to purchase tickets for the season opener at Glen Helen Raceway, please click HERE.
