Echo Valley MX is the perfect stop for an adventurous afternoon. 

I don't know about you, but there's nothing better than a summer day spent at the race track.

My boyfriend has raced motocross since he was in grade school. As the years have went on, he's had less and less seat time. Life gets in the way and we've been very busy preparing for a baby. However, yesterday we loaded up and spent the afternoon at Echo Valley MX track. I forgot how much I missed the smell of racing fuel.

Echo Valley MX is about a 45-minute drive from Evansville, making it one of the closest motocross tracks to the general Tri-State area.

Echo is located at 1722 Poole Mill Rd Sebree, KY 42455. The cost is $20 per rider, which is pocket change for the set up they have. The track is always worked before each practice day, and watered regularly throughout practice.

Don't these ruts get you excited? Maybe it's just me.

Anyway, to see the practice schedule, 'like' Echo Valley MX on Facebook. The owners provide regular updates on track conditions and riding schedules.
