BUYERS BEWARE!  Universe is the ONLY official ticketing provider for RedBud Pro Motocross. Tickets obtained from other sources cannot be searched, reprinted, refunded, or exchanged by RedBud or Universe. Tickets from other sources may be counterfeit, stolen, or invalid and may not be honored.

TICKETS

General Admission tickets are ALWAYS available at the event.  They do not sell out.

SATURDAY TICKETS

A Saturday ticket includes Saturday parking, the pro national, amateur night racing afterwards and the fireworks after dark; it’s good until the night race concludes!   This is all you need to enjoy all the main events.

If you’re camping Saturday night and/or staying for the Sunday race, you’ll need a Saturday/Sunday ticket.

All tickets include Saturday. Not interested in the pro race?  We suggest coming for an amateur race weekend on a different date so you’re not paying for something you don’t want!

Arrive early Saturday!  Avoid the long lines and enjoy early practice sessions starting at 8am.  Practice is a great time to walk around and check out different track sections and places to sit for the day.  Bring a blanket and/or chairs, an umbrella for shade, and a cooler if you’d like.  Just no glass containers or alcohol, please.   There are some areas outside the infield where you can use an EZ Up. Umbrellas can be used anywhere, but small umbrellas only in bleachers, please.

MULTI-DAY TICKETS

Whether buying online or at the track, a Wednesday, Thursday or Friday ticket will be good through Sunday.  If you’re camping Saturday night and/or staying for the Sunday race, you’ll need a Saturday/Sunday ticket.

CAMPING

We hightly recommend buying camping online to secure your spot! Camping nearly sold out a few days before the 2023 event.  We’ll post closer to event time if camping is available for purchase at the track.

Renting an RV for the weekend?  There’s ONE way to have your rental delivered and ready when you get here: buy your camping online and contact Krenek RV Rentals.   They’ll have you set up in the lot you chose and will  have folks on site daily throughout the event in case you have questions or issues.

TICKET UPGRADES

VIP Passes will be available after the new year; they are an ADD-ON to General Admission tickets.

Trackside Parking/Tailgating in two areas: the Hammer of Thor jump and LaRocco’s Leap.  Fence row spaces will be offered after the new year to previous buyers, and the remainder will be available online.
Limited parking  is also available behind the fence row for a reduced price.  It’s a great option if you want your car and supplies nearby, if you have trouble walking long distances, and if you want a nice viewing area but don’t like to be in the big crowds.  (See Handicap Access and Viewing info below.)
IMPORTANT: Access to the Trackside Parking areas is ONLY available through the South Entrance!

Pit Passes will be available for the hours of 9am until 12pm on Saturday.  We suggest buying online; quantities are limited and tend to sell out by Friday.   There will be an early check-in Friday to alleviate the lines Saturday morning;  exact time and location TBA.

PARKING

Parking fee is $10/day Thursday and Friday, and $15 for Saturday. No charge for motorcycle daily parking, or as an extra vehicle in a camp site.
Full event parking pass is $30 and includes all event days.
SATURDAY PARKING $15: CASH ONLY AT ALL ENTRANCES.

HANDICAP ACCESS AND VIEWING

Just coming for Saturday?  The best parking is through the South Entrance on Red Bud Trail.  Show your state handicap placard to help us direct you as smoothly and quickly as possible.  If you have specific needs, give us a call so we can explain the viewing options and direct you to the best track entrance. 269-695-6405.

Option 1:  Parking inside the fence (through Gate 1) near the Hammer of Thor jump.
Use the South Entrance on Red Bud trail, and try to stay in one of the left 2 lanes when you enter.
This is a great track view away from the crowd and close to your parking area.
Show your handicap parking tag and ask to be directed to Gate 1, straight ahead after leaving the gate lane booth.

Option 2:  Parking outside the Gate 4 entrance to the pro track area.  Use the South Entrance on Red Bud Trail.  This is the closest parking to the midway and vending areas, which lead to the track infield.

Option 3: Parking near Gate 6, accessible from the West Entrance on Main Street.  Walk to the midway and vending areas, which lead to the track infield.  (You can park a bit closer by using the South Entrance on Red Bud trail.)

If you’re camping, bring your handicap tag or sticker.  We’ll direct you to a camping row with the best access to handicap shuttle carts to take you to and from the track.  Call 269-695-6405 /email [email protected] for more information.

FOOD, BEVERAGE AND SOUVENIR CONCESSIONS

A variety of food and beverages are available at both the pro track and night track midway areas.
Food vendors generally include burgers, fries, nachos, pizza, burritos, BBQ, ice cream and other specialty items.
Beverages include water, soft drinks, Monster Energy drinks, coffee, iced tea, beer and seltzer beverages.
Some vendors, food and beer stands accept credit cards; all accept cash.  We’re not downtown … WiFi problems happen!  It’s a good idea to bring cash as a backup in case vendors have problems with credit card processing.
