Need a new lens for BMX and MTB racing.

Hi guys, I have a 60d and I'm looking for a new lens. My son and I got into bmx a few month ago and we are using a 70-300 canon lens for this but is not turning out great.

I would like to get something for these type of sport and mountain biking. We race outdoors, sometimes during the day and sometimes during the night with not so great light for pictures at the track.

What would be a good set up for me, budget wise, I have no idea how much a lens for my purpose would cost but budget is not a lot as I just want something to get the job done nicely, not professionally.

Also, I'm taking the pics on sports mode, would there be a better mode for this?

Thanks in advance for any help.
