How do you get to the track?
Fernley is located about 30 miles East of Reno on Interstate 80, and has two off ramp/exits. Take Exit 48 and drive North about 1/4 mile on Truck Inn Way. You will pass the Truck Inn Casino and the diesel truck fuel islands. Turn left on Veterans Way and go West about 1 mile past the Cemetery. Go just a little farther to the Fernley/Wadsworth International Raceway motocross track. It’s easy to find. Fernley is a small town, so if you get lost, anyone can tell you the way.

Is there camping?
There is camping at the track, but there is no water, electric or sewer.

Are there Motels close by?
Yes. The town of Fernley has motels, inns, and RV parks. Check out some of them here. Reno and Sparks are less that 30 minutes to the West on I-80. There are plenty of rooms there.

What kind of track is it?
Fernley is a sand track. There are no rocks. If you want rocks, you will have to bring your own. Our club members design and build the track. I can tell you that the track crew rides big 4-strokes, so the track will be wide with some long and straight sections. I expect that it will develop some good natural sand whoops. Expect braking bumps to develop before the turns. The track can get rough, but it is wide enough to find good lines with plenty of good passing opportunities. We will have some jumps and tabletops, but nothing “do or die.” We work on the faces of the jumps and pack them so they do hold up for the racing, and rarely will they rut out too bad.

What kind of tire do you run?
You want to run a soft sand tire….like a Dunlop 756 or 753 or a Bridgestone 401. I have good reports on an IRC M5B. I will run 12 or 13 psi.

What is the Elevation?
About 4300 feet.

What kind of starting gate?
We have a cement starting pad with rearward falling individual gates. We use a 30 second board.

What will the weather be like?
We should not have to worry about rain (our annual rainfall is less than 4″), but even if it does rain, it should not be a problem. We do worry when it gets windy, though. Sometimes a wind will come “out of nowhere” and take an awning or an EZ-up, so be sure to stake them down.

Will there be practice on Friday?
Yes, there will be practice on Friday before the International only!
10AM to 3PM, cost is $25

What is there to eat?
The Lions Club will have their concession stand at the track. They will be serving their famous hamburgers and cheeseburgers, dogs, chips, candy, and drinks. They serve up a breakfast burrito, too. Saturday night, members of OTMX Nevada Oldtimers and the Carolina Kitchen Restaurant will be hosting the dinner. There will be plenty of food and drinks. One dinner is included with your race entry and you can buy dinner tickets for your guests.

Please help keep our facility clean by picking up your trash. The winds come up quickly at Fernley and can blow garbage everywhere. Make sure your EZ-Ups, tents and awnings are well-secured.
