Come to Mammoth this summer for the natural beauty, stay for the non-stop party! Starting with the longest running motocross in the US – the Monster Energy Mammoth Motocross – in June, there is a different festival almost every week in Mammoth.
Monster Energy Mammoth Motocross June 21-30
Back in 1968, Don Rake and some friends decided to put on a motocross in Mammoth Lakes, California. They built a world-class track 8,000 feet up in the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range. Dave McCoy came along and offered the backing of his Mammoth Mountain Ski Area and the rest is history.
Every summer racers have flocked to Mammoth for this classic event. It is the oldest continuous running motocross in the USA. The track has changed a little over the years, but the fun hasn't!
