Loretta Lynn’s: The Birthplace Of Motocross Stars

Over the last four decades, most motocross legends have been born into stardom on a starting gate nestled in the woods of Hurricane Mills, Tenn. Since 1982, Loretta Lynn’s Ranch has been the national stage on which amateur riders, including Ricky Carmichael, James Stewart and Eli Tomac, have proven themselves to be the future of the sport. You had to win,” said Jason Anderson, the 2018 AMA Supercross champion. Anderson was 9 years old during his first trip to Loretta Lynn’s in 2002. In the years following his debut, Anderson won five Loretta Lynn’s Amateur National Championships. Upon reflection, the 30-year-old admits his experience at Loretta Lynn’s Ranch was different than most, as he was connected with factory teams (Suzuki, KTM and Kawasaki) for most of his amateur career. For newly crowned AMA Supercross champion Chase Sexton, Loretta Lynn’s was everything.
