The 2015 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship headed to The Land Of 10,000 Lakes for round eight at Spring Creek Motocross Park in Millville, Minnesota, a favorite stop in the series for both racers and fans alike. Located just an hour outside of Minneapolis in the scenic Mississippi River Valley, the Spring Creek facility features some of the best dirt on the circuit along with a track layout mixed with both natural obstacles and big jumps. Owned and operated by John and Greta Martin, parents to 250 National stars Jeremy and Alex Martin, the track has grown to become a staple in American motocross over the years, as well as one we always love to visit.
Both current championship points leaders heading into the weekend were Minnesota natives and claim Spring Creek as their home turf, but in the pivotal round for fight the 250 title, Jeremy Martin needed to use his home track advantage to separate himself from fellow title contender Marvin Musquin, who only sat seven points behind Martin at the start of the day.
Mother Nature intended on making things interesting with another massive storm, but fortunately it was mistimed and Millville saw a beautiful day for racing, albeit hot and muggy, for what many stated was the toughest round yet.
