Southwick is the only pure sand track on the 2018 AMA 250/450 National circuit. It can be deep and loose, but it has been ruin on occasion by weather or over-maintenance during the “smooth track” years. Tucked into the woods in Massachusetts, it it a classic motocross track that amazingly isn’t very far from town. In fact, it is almost in town. Southwick has always been an interesting National because local knowledge has accounted for more than a small number of outstanding performance by local NESC racers—most notably John Dowd and Pat Barton. Who will be this week’s local hero?
