Q

What types of tracks are available at Haspin Acres?

A

Haspin Acres has some awesome tracks! Ryan Meyung is now grooming the motocross track, and he keeps it looking good and riding smooth! He has removed the roller sections, including the "Dirty Dozen," changed the layout of the track, and added some much cooler jumps! When Ryan grooms the track, it is groomed to perfection! Come check out our new motocross track and give it a ride!

In addition to our super cool motocross track, Haspin Acres also has a 300 foot loose dirt drag strip! Our flat drags are run with official PortaTree timing equipment, and ALL vehicles are welcome to enter - ATVs, UTVs, quads, bikes, buggies, trucks, four wheelers, hand crafted dirt dragsters, and everything in between. Haspin Acres runs true Bracket Drag Races as well as "Run What You Brung" and Outlaw Drag Races.

Haspin Acres also has two mud bog pits for your mud splattering pleasure! Our smaller mud pit, the "Challenger," is a little easier to cross than our larger "Eliminator" mud pit. The "Challenger'' pit is perfect for Quads, Bikes, UTVs, and smaller vehicles, and the "Eliminator" pit is best for the Big Trucks and larger vehicles. Whether you are running in one of our Mud Bog Races or just playing in the mud, our mud bog pits are a mud lover's dream!

  

  

Q

Are the trails at Haspin Acres marked?

A

The trails are ever changing, as Mother Nature and our customers are always creating or re-creating trails throughout the park. Keeping up with all the trails is not really possible, so not every trail is marked. However, we do have color coded arrows nailed to the trees of certain areas to help our customers navigate through the woods. White arrows indicate the "easy" trails of the 'Fire Trail.' Blue arrows mark the "moderate" trails of 'Left Field.' Orange and red arrows mark the way around the "difficult" trails of the 'Devil's Backbone.'

 

Q

If I get stuck, how do I get out?

A

Your best bet is to find another Haspin Acres customer to pull you out. Haspin Acres does not guarantee that someone will always be available to pull you out if you get stuck, although we frequently do have someone available who can and will pull you out. In some cases, depending on the circumstances and location of the stuck vehicle, there may be a service charge for the tow/pull out service.

Q

If something on my vehicle breaks, is there anywhere to get it fixed?

A

We have parts and accessories available on-site through Mr. Skids, who owns and operates his own portable shop. His trailer is currently located next to the Big Barn, not far from the Admissions Building. There is also an off road shop for buggies and trucks in the nearby town of Laurel that has very limited hours of operation. 

Q

If I do not want to camp at Haspin Acres, where is the nearest hotel?

The nearest hotel is in Connersville, Indiana, which is approximately 10 miles North of Haspin Acres.
