About Desoto BMX
With 72,000 square feet of space under one roof, DeSoto BMX is America’s first covered facility designed exclusively to host race events of all sizes. Conveniently located in southwest Dallas County, it has become well-known for hosting some of the largest BMX events.
Since opening in 1999, DeSoto BMX has been the home of the USA BMX Super Nationals. The three-day event draws more than 1,800 participants every year.

We look forward to the national each year.
