The Wick 338
Tourism Council: Greater Springfield Tourism Council
The Southwick Motocross 338 track is approx. 1.3 mile in length on 28 acres owned by the American Legion Post 338.
The first race at The Wick was held back in 1973 after a group of MX dads from Legion Post 338 turned the woods behind the post into what would become the world famous facility it is today. Lead by Bernie Yelin the crew consisted of Ray Peebles, Pat Smith, Dante Molta, Clovis Goyette and many others who worked for hours with chain saws and bulldozers to build the track.
Today the Wick is being returned to it’s original direction and some of the iconic jumps and turns are being rebuilt to recreate the layout that thousands of racers have loved over the last 42 years.
The Wick is easy to get to and within a couple hours of Boston, Worcester, Hartford and New York, it draws a big crowd at almost all it’s events.
