52nd Annual Hangtown Motocross Classic, scheduled for

May 16, 2020, has been cancelled


Through torrent rains, dense fog and blazing sun, the Hangtown Motocross Classic has been a mainstay of the outdoor motocross world for more than 50 years.  Riders and fans have recognized that very little can disrupt the sport of motocross racing.

Unfortunately, with the outbreak of the coronavirus and continual spread of the disease throughout the country, the Dirt Diggers North Motorcycle Club, host of the Hangtown Motocross Classic, decided yesterday evening, March 17th, to cancel this year’s race.

In light of the action by the governing bodies of the other major sporting entities in the United States, and with guidance by both state and federal health officials, the Hangtown Motocross Classic has been officially cancelled for the 2020 year.

“With an abundance of caution for our thousands of fans and riders, and for the health and well-being of the members of the motocross industry who attend our race each year, cancelling Hangtown 2020 was our best course of action in light of our current situation”, said Bob Messer, Director of the Hangtown Motocross Classic.

Messer added, “To our thousands of loyal fans who have already purchased tickets to this year’s race, you will of course, receive a full refund”.   

In these difficult times, cancelling this year’s race was a very tough discussion, but know that the Club will do whatever is possible to make the 2021 Hangtown Motocross Classic, the best ever.

Thank you for your understanding.
