December 15th, 2014 — It was announced today that the Motocross Track at Mission Raceway would be closed so the B.C. Custom Car Association, who own the property, can expand the road course for sports cars and the pits used for drag racing. The motocross track first opened in 1973 and ran continuously every year since. In its early days it was memorable mainly for it’s mud which was slippery but always rideable, it’s sand whoops which often weren’t, and the man made hill above which was quite something in 1983 when the picture was taken. Many riders, myself included, had their first race at Mission.
