Located in the scenic and beautiful Mississippi River Valley, on the edge of its namesake stream, Spring Creek MX Park has some of the richest soil on the circuit. The earth here is actually great for farming, so it should come as no surprise that at one time this track served as a working farm. Unfortunately, the annual early-spring floods from the snow melt in the valleys made this parcel of land particularly difficult to cultivate. As a result, a man named Grant Marquardt pursued his interest in motorcycles by founding a hillclimb event here in 1967. As they say, the rest is history.
