About Tim and Amy - Can I get a Reeeed Buuuuud? The iconic chant heard each summer at the famous motocross facility in Buchanan, MI. Started in 1972 by Gene Ritchie, the entire facility is one of the most well-liked amongst the motocross community. Running the track was always a family affair, with Gene joined by his son Tim and daughter Amy the track grew from humble beginnings to one of the premier tracks in the world.
In addition to the annual AMA Motocross National event held each July, in 2018 the Ritchie’s hosted the worlds best with the Motocross of Nations and although the weather didn’t cooperate it was widely recognized as a huge success with the largest Motocross of Nations attendance recorded. But Red Bud is not just the national and Motocross of Nations. The Ritchie’s host a Quad National, Loretta Lynn’s Qualifier and much more each year at the track.
Motocross is a passion for this family and following in their dad’s footsteps are Tim and Amy Ritchie. Please join us on Saturday night as we honor them.
