Today is the 34th running of the Budds Creek National. This year's Budds Creek National will serve as round 10 of the 2023 Pro Motocross Championship, sanctioned by AMA Pro Racing, and round 27 of the inaugural 2023 SuperMotocross (SMX) World Championship.
TV coverage of the Budds Creek National kicks off in the morning with live qualifying coverage beginning at 10 a.m. EDT/7 a.m. PDT on Peacock. Peacock will carry live coverage of the motos beginning at 1 p.m. EDT/10 a.m. PDT.
While serious business takes place a half hour away in Washington, D.C., the area around Budds Creek MX is pure relaxation. The nearby Chesapeake Bay draws travelers of all kinds, and perfect summer weather sets the Pro National date as the right time to explore the area.
But while the track itself looks like pure fun, it gets brutally serious at the top level of AMA Pro Motocross. Perhaps fitting for a track so close to the nation’s capital, Budds Creek offers classic American Motocross, with the perfect combination of hills, jumps, corners and deep, tacky soil. The racing usually stays close, as passes come down to who can brake a little harder into a turn, or scrub a little lower over a jump. It’s an all-arounder, as if some of the best components of the other ten National tracks were dropped into a valley to produce an all-around marvel. From the right spots atop the hillsides, you can see it all, as well!
Make a weekend out of this one so you can check out D.C. and the beautiful Maryland countryside, and then sit back for some of the most intense motocross action anywhere. This place is part business, part fun, and all American.
