Lake Sugar Tree Motorsports is a family sports park for motorcycle riding and racing which is located in Henry County off of HWY. 58 East on State Route 617 Axton, Virginia - Between Martinsville and Danville. The Motocross track has been around for over 30 years, it all started with a few local racers from the Trans Am Series who came to Lake Sugar Tree in the beginning of the 70’s bringing top European rider’s to compete against the top American rider’s. A couple of years later the AMA (American Motorcycle Association) came on board with it’s series, which provide more American verses Europe “best of the best” racing.
In the “80’s” the AMA awarded Lake Sugar Tree and it’s then owner David Bailey (who was also a top National ranked Motocross rider) a National Championship Series. Riders and spectators came from all over the world to be a part of the racing and excitement here in Henry County. Today David Bailey is presently working for ESPN/ABC SPORTS TV as a color announcer doing the ever-popular super cross and outdoor AMA National Championship Series.
Today Lake Sugar Tree Motorsports Park is owned by, David’s uncle, Bob Bailey and is ran by the grandson, Ryan Smith. Lake Sugar Tree is a member of the AMA District 13 hosting several events during the race season. Lake Sugar Tree Motorsports Park has also combined forces with Gary Bailey Motocross School who instructs students from all over the world. Many of Gary’s students have gone on to becoming champions of Motocross, such as Gary’s own son David Bailey and Travis Pastrana.
In 2002 Lake Sugar Tree Motor Sports Park came of age with it’s new Millennium Building complete with stage, restaurant style concession stand, restrooms with showers and automatic water system, Premium RV Parking and an area specifically designed for our vendors.
In 2006 Lake Sugar Tree started an eight race series, “ Lake Sugar Tree Moonlight Series”. The Moonlight series is an organized competition of local racers on our stadiumcross track. This is a track that is loaded with tight racing and lots of competition in each and every class. It’s tons of fun for the whole family on Saturday
