A few enthusiastic volunteers are working hard to help Rimbey’s motocross track be the best it can be, but more help is needed.

Spokesperson Ian Giebelhaus is excited about the track and the potential it has to provide hours of entertainment for bikes and quads.

“The good news is the track is open and it’s being fixed up. It is a fantastic facility for the community and people come from far and wide to use it,” he said.

On the flip side, the track is in need of dirt work and the committee is looking for wood, compost, chips or sand and/or equipment such as tractors, discs or cultivators to get the work done.

Volunteers are also needed to help with track maintenance.

The track is a locked facility. Membership fees are $100 per year for an individual and $200 per family and are available at Fas Gas. Day passes are also available.

“Members are encouraged and expected to put in some volunteer time at the track,” said Giebelhaus.

The Turbo Brothers Honda Motocross Track is part of Central Alberta Raceways which also include a quarter mile drag strip, race oval, demolition derby and mud bog.
