The track is located at 12605 Frost Rd. on land owned by C-2 and leased to the Raytown Park Board for the BMX track and youth soccer fields.

What is Bicycle Motocross Racing (BMX) Racing?
BMX is one of the fastest growing youth sports in the nation. BMX is bicycle racing on a dirt track with jumps and turns. BMX is a sport catering to the individual. Every rider gets to participate and compete. No one sits on the bench and no one gets cut from the team of BMX.
Skill Levels:There are three amateur skill levels: Novice, Intermediate, and Expert. All riders start as Novices and work up to the more advanced levels by winning races.
Membership: You must join the ABA to ride on the track. We have a 1-day Free Membership just to see if you like the sport of BMX. If you do, you can then purchase a 30-day trial membership or a full membership. A 30-day trial membership is available for $25. Within the 30 days, you can join the ABA as a full member for only $25 more. A full membership is $45 per year.
