Frequently Asked Questions

** What can I ride at NCMP?  ALL SIZE DIRT BIKES.  At this time, we are not allowing full size ATV’s for practice on our tracks or trails.  Children with youth size ATV’s can ride our pee-wee, flat track, and intermediate track accompanied by a parent and in compliance with NC State ATV regulations.  A full size ATV can be used as a pit-vehicle to travel to and from our different track locations as long as the operator is over age 16 and is observing our park rules and pit speed.

1. When are you open? We are open year-round, 7 days a week from 10am – 5pm (weather permitting)

2. How many tracks do you have? We currently have 4 mx style tracks at NCMP. They are: Pee-Wee mx track, Intermediate mx track, Advanced/Race track & a new SX track that opened in April 2011. (SX track open on select weekends and for racing only) We also have several miles of woods trails for Intermediate / Advanced woods riders. Note December 2015: The pee-wee track is temporarily closed closed and being rebuilt. The woods trails are also temporarily closed for re-routing, bridge repairs, etc… Both will re-open shortly

3. How much does it cost to ride at NCMP? A membership is $40 (includes riding first day) and allows you to come back and ride as a member for $25 ages 8 and up / $20 ages 7 and under. This membership is good for one year and membership card is issued. A “Day Pass” WITHOUT annual membership is $30 ages 8 and up / $25 ages 7 and under. We also offer a Season Pass which allows you to ride as many days as you like for one full year from the date of purchase. Please visit our “Fees” page for more info and pricing.

4. Can we camp at NCMP? Camping is allowed and encouraged at NCMP! Camping is primitive (no bath house) and you can camp at whichever track you choose. We have access to water to fill an RV or your water barrel from our water truck if needed. We have 3 porta-potties throughout the park and there is usually some firewood available. We do not have electrical hook-ups at this time, but you are welcome to use your generator. You may enter after hours to set up and we will sign you in, in the morning.

5. How often do you race and on what tracks? We hold all AMA Sanctioned MX events on our 1.75 mile race track. We also use our SX Track for a night time Spring – Fall Nite-X series. We do not race on the Intermediate or Flat MX track. Usually once or twice a year we host a cross-country / harescramble woods race as well.

6. What do I need to bring for my child to ride if only one parent can be present? On our site you can download and print the minor releases. The parent that will not be present must sign and notarize the release. The parent attending with the child can sign the forms at the park upon sign-in. If you are choosing the $35 annual membership, these forms will stay on file for one year. If you are choosing a “day pass” then you will need these forms each time you visit.

7. When do you groom the tracks? We grade, water, and plow the race track for weekend practice only (Sat/Sun) Mulch has been added to the dirt at the race track for a more loamy dirt that ruts up in the corners.  We cannot prep during the week at this time.  Our Intermediate Track & Flat Track get attention as needed and watered for dust control on weekends.  These tracks have a more hard packed surface for Beginner & Intermediate level riders.  The drainage at both the big mx tracks is great and the best time to ride is after it rains and the sun comes out!

8. Is there a fee to come in and spectate? There is not a spectator fee to come in and watch open practice.  The only time a fee is charged to spectators is at a race event on a specific track that the race is happening on.
