The Billings Motorcycle Club (BMC)

A Private Club with 25 Event Days open to Public Competitors and Spectators

The Billings Motorcycle Club® (BMC) is a private club that holds over 20 public events each year on its 1,421 acre grounds that include a suite of facilities and eight tracks for motocross, supercross, flat track, endurocross, cross country, scrambles, hill climb courses, sand drags, and 50s tracks. Anyone is welcome to sign up for a public competition by looking at the BMC’s public events here. BMC Members enjoy access to the Club Grounds and tracks at anytime during the entire year, including camping while riding during a nice long weekend, or out-of-town members taking a motorcycle vacation.

A Private Membership

Aside from public events, the BMC is a paid and private membership consisting of 325 “Active” members each season. In addition the total membership also includes “Lifetime” members who have previously been paid Active members of over 20 years and become lifetime members. The cost for an annual Active membership is $420 for the first three years, then becomes $300 for the following years, as long as the membership years are consecutive. As an Active member, each individual member, or a member and its family are required to volunteer 26 hours of work to the Club’s events, projects and other tasks to keep the Club working smoothly.

There are also “Associate” memberships and “Honorary” Memberships. Associate Memberships are $1000, and there are no work hours required, or voting privileges.

If you are interested in becoming a member, you should apply as soon as possible for the following season. New members are “voted in” by the first Wednesday of each March. New “Prospective” membership applicants need two Active BMC Members to sponsor them.

New Members can also put their Spouses and children under 18 on a Membership at no extra cost, with the exception of additional gate key fees. The Family shares the same “Family Number” unless a spouse or child will be competing in the events.
