They won't shut down until the local outdoor tracks are open and people stop going there. You still got some time...

just my opinion..but i would think they shouldnt "close for the season"....i understand that if they are trying to go head to head with an outdoor track on a weekend day..they might not pull that many riders...but if its raining..theyd get packed....and how many of the tracks are open for practice during the week in the ct/ny/ma/nh area? ( honest question since im from snj i dont know)...and even if there are tracks open during the week,how many of us actually work and cant take a couple days a week off to ride? id think tey would make out well if they had evening practice during the time when they would close for the season...theres a track in nj that has nite time practices under lights...the track is terrible/at times actually dangerous..but a ton of people still go because they work days and want to get seat time so id think that mototown could do well all year long with a little strategic marketing research....not sure of the stuation but do they not have to pay rent taxes when not open?...so wouldnt some money be better than no money?...im sure there must be something im not aware of...but if if it were my business thats the direction i would be looking into

If it were me, I would hold night practices and maybe even a Friday night race. Maybe get involved with the local district and run specific, night events. As long as the effort keeps the place in the black, but preferrably in the green.

Rocky Hill MX is about twenty minutes from Mototown and is open five days a week in the summer. If Mototown was near Albany NY, where there aren't any tracks it would do business every day, summer or winter. There is an article Racer X this month and it sounds like they want to stay open all year.

Summer camps and training sessions are also being planned, with beginner to advanced sessions available.

There are several more ideas in the works for Mototown, and the goal is to become "the ultimate year-round riding and training facility in the North America," according to Olcott. "Currently, we are the largest indoor facility in North America: now we are working on becoming the best."

As of right now they say there are planning to stay open

I was there the other day and it was like a private track, maybe 10-15 people during my sessions and they said it has been light because everyone thinks they are closing.

The track is awesome and they just made some changes too

I hate to give up my secret, but if you guys want to ride get over there. It is still as good as it was all winter, even better now because no one is really there!

Rocky Hill can be bullshit-crazy on most nice weekends in the summer... There would be more than enough people to fill Mototown and Rocky hill IMO...

And Rocky Hill is underwater or wicked muddy a lot in the spring and fall.... It's currently a lake on the edge of the CT river.
