Rain, Shine or Snow, it's always a go at the northeast's only covered racing facility!
Grippen Park BMX is a dirt track approximately 750 feet long, with banked turns and jumps of all shapes and sizes. It is located inside the former Grippen Ice Rink with a roof overhead eliminating any rain outs that occur during a racing season. This also allows for a longer race season and is more attractive for bigger race events to be held at Grippen. The track is run by a non-profit group with volunteers. Racing will be every Friday night with registration from 6:00PM to 7:30PM and racing beginning as soon as possible. Tuesday night racing will also begin in the summer.
For over 25-years sanctioned BMX racing has been in the Greater Binghamton NY area, but when the group running Cheri A. Lindsey BMX decided to join the sanctioning body American Bicycle Association (ABA) to better suit its future growth and align with other tracks in the area it was determined a move was needed. The Grippen Park BMX track is located under the roof of the former Grippen Park Ice Rink. The ice rink was closed after a major flood hit the Greater Binghamton area in 2006. In 2008, track operator Gary Gitchell, and former board members Chris Edwards, Toby Hintze & Brenda Hintze started the process with Broome County and the Village of Endicott officials to open a track at this location.
Since that time, Grippen Park BMX has grown to be one of the most well-known tracks in the region. Known for our special events, Winter Racing Series and holding the largest non-national races we have quickly risen to be a "go-to" spot.
