Kremmling dirt track, motocross plans gain traction

KREMMLING – The proposal of a quarter-mile long dirt track just two miles outside of Kremmling was a topic of discussion at a recent town board meeting.

The plan is to create a dirt track about the size of a standard high-school running track for racing various types of cars, with a motocross track placed in the middle. Motocross tracks consist of winding dirt trails with hills, jumps, sharp turns, and often muddy terrain that challenges most dirt-bike riders.

The setting of the track is planned to be located two miles outside of Kremmling on County Road 22, next to the closed Kremmling landfill.



Project organizer Kittie Docheff believes if this track were to be put in place, it would allow kids to have something to do and to put their time and energy into something productive rather than fall for the pressures that teens can face. “They can put their money into car parts,” said Docheff, “instead of drugs and alcohol.”

Docheff and Brad Parr were present at the Kremmling town council meeting on June 5 to apprise the town of their idea. Town board members were in general support of the project. “We have a consensus among us all that it’s a go,” Kremmling Mayor Tom Clark said. “Whatever we can do to help you out, just let us know.”



Docheff and Parr plan to approach the Grand County Commissioners before fall 2013 to gain approval of the project.

The project is still in the beginning stages of development. For those who would like to know more information about the project or would like to make any donations to it, contact Kittie Docheff at 970-725-3283 or at kittiedocheff@yahoo.com or Brad Parr at 970-725-0045.
