Since COVID is throwing a wrench in Thanksgiving plans, we decided to do a thanksgiving moto trip on short notice. We are coming from southern Mn and I’d like to keep the drive short-ish. Any tracks open in Missouri, Illinois, Indiana this weekend? I was looking at archview or Lincoln trail so far. A good sand track would be awesome! Suggestions?

Leisure time mx in Medaryville, IN is planning is running. It is the definition of a good sand track. I’m planning on heading out there.

Leisure time is legit if you’re looking for sand.

Sweet 16 MX in Oklahoma is riding Fri-Sun. They're only open like twice a year typically, so when it's good, it's good! Also there's an offroad race about an hour from there in Fort Smith Arkansas Sunday that is always a blast

LTM in Casey IL is a great option. But the weather doesn't look good for riding here.It's supposed to rain all day today. Next couple days look ok but not sure how much it will dry out. Follow LTM on FB.

Archview is set to be open for practice on Friday and Saturday. Weather over here has been rainy and cool for a few days, but that part of the weekend should be okay.

Archview just updated their dates -- now Sat/Sun, full prep. Great track and excellent dirt.

I don't know of anywhere to find any information other than Facebook, but there's a new track opening to the public the day after thanksgiving in Hutsonville, IL. Big River Off-Road I think they've named it. Looks like they have a sand based MX track and a few different off-road loops.

It stopped raining for the rest of the week at Leisure Time this afternoon, and they are prepping the track tomorrow. Thursday and Friday should be great, then maybe Lincoln Trail or Archview Saturday or Sunday. That would be a pretty epic and diverse moto trip!

MC Motopark in Mt. Carroll, IL posted on their Facebook they might be riding Saturday. Hands down one of the best tracks in the mid west.

Mt Carroll would be fantastic. Been itching to get back.

Western Illinois. Come to Sandy Oaks in Keithsburg, IL. Bob Hannah says it’s the hardest sand track he’s ever rode. It will wear you out in a hurry. Plus they have camping and only $5 a day to ride. We will be there Saturday. With the rain we just had the same will be premium condition! I’d guess most dirt places will be closed.

Also, Midwest Motocross by Chandlerville, IL is real fun sand track but I’d have to check their Facebook they may be closed until the new year due to hunting.

If you're okay with a little bit further drive, I know Jandebeurs in Oklahoma is open. I have heard really good things about the facility. Lots of different skill level tracks.
