Spring Has Arrived

Longer Days, Races and Superblooms in the Desert

Wildflowers at Spring Mountain Motor ResortCelebrate the beginning of a beautiful new season at Club Spring Mountain! This year we are fortunate to witness a rare "Superbloom" in the area. Death Valley has wildflower blooms every year, but the high amount of rainfall this year triggered the biggest bloom Death Valley has seen in a decade. Longer days mean more hours of fun on the track, and the weather is warming, which is perfect for water activities including paddle-boarding and jet-packing on Lake Spring Mountain. You and your guests can enjoy all the comforts of home in the Clubhouse, relax in a bubbling spa, enjoy the outdoor fire pit, order a drink at the bar, catch up with old friends and meet new ones. With so many activities to experience along with the thrills of driving on the track, more members and guests than ever are enjoying their time at the Club.

Spring Mountain RaceOur Club Race Weekend will be held on March 18-20, and we hope you will join us for some fun and friendly competition in the Light Sport Racer and Miata Race Series. The Wolf Racing cars and their drivers are making a name for themselves and breaking track records! If you haven't yet seen these Italian beauties in action, you owe it to yourself to stop by and see for yourself what everyone is talking about. Please refer to our Event Calendar to choose your dates to visit the Club this month.

Looking forward to seeing you at the track!

Busch posted the following on his Facebook page: "What a day out in the desert at Spring Mountain Motorsports for the Ron Fellows Driving School! You guys know how much my Stewart-Haas Racing #41 team, led by Tony Gibson, mean to me...this was a small 'thank you' and the boys did great! The Chevy Corvettes were flawless and performed unbelievable right out of the box."
