UPDATE 12/25/2022: Budds Creek Motocross owners released the following statement. “Tonight at about 6:30, our barn caught fire. The current thinking is that the wind knocked down a live electrical wire. Thankfully everyone is ok, but we lost a lot of equipment. The barn itself was over 100 years old and has been an iconic mainstay of our facility. It will be missed. Huge thank you to the volunteers from over 10 departments that came out to fight the fire.
