Diamondback Motocross was originally opened in 1992. The track was started by John Coen and another partner, two expert level motocross racers. The track quickly became 'THE' track to race at be most NY, NJ, CT, MA, & PA area riders. Diamondback was forced to close it's gates in 2008. Not wanting to walk away from the sport he loved, John Coen quickly secured property in East Durham, NY which is located in the majestic Catskill Region.
The new Diamondback Motocross of East Durham flew back into the racing scene just as it did when it first opened. Riders will WANT to race this track. Spectators will feel like they are sitting in the middle of the races. Diamondback uphill triple, high speed sections, fast sweeping start, table tops, doubles, whoops, oh yeah, it's on AND IT'S ON BIGTIME!!!
