Submitted Rule Proposals for the 2019 Season

This page will be updated as rules are submitted. Note that this is not an automated process, so your proposal may not appear instantly. Thank you!


Submitter: Clint R.

Why does the 85 class go before the 65 classes the 85 tears up the course alot more the the 65’s


Submitter: Aaron W.

Via GoPro Footage or occra official eyewitness If caught cutting Track automatic DQ for that race if caught again automatic DQ from the series Cut and dry no gray areas no excuses


Submitter: Tanner M.

Pro payout 200% OR make the pro entry the same as all other classes. Paying extra is not fair when the payout is capped at $210 and you only leave with $150 and having to race at such a higher level. Also if the payout is better more pros will come which is good for spectators and kids to watch and learn and it raises the skills of the whole club by learning new speeds


Submitter: Rebecca B.

Colored backgrounds or numbers for the different classes so it’s easier for younger ones to identify those not in their class.


Submitter: Matt M.

Add a +30 A class, you can start on the Masters line like every other series


Submitter: Brad W.

2 hour (A)race or 50 miles.

We will also be grilling up hamburgers, and will provide buns and condiments. We ask that each family bring a side or dessert, and provide your own beverages and chairs.

We do have 1 critical things we have to discuss with more emphasis then ever. We need everyone’s help all weekend to keep trash cleaned up. This property MUST be spotless when we leave, so if you see any trash on the ground throughout the weekend, please pick it up and throw it in a trash can. I can’t express how critical this is at the event, so please help us with that.

Just a general reminder, gates open at 3pm on Friday afternoon. Do not arrive earlier please. Also, be sure that everyone under the age of 18 wears a helmet at all times on ALL motorized vehicles, driver or passenger. NO exceptions.

Ready to Rock and Roll at Round 10

OCCRA is excited to return to one of our state’s awesome public riding areas for Round 10 September 22nd and 23rd – Gruber ORV Park! Located in Green Country near Muskogee, this park provides a diverse terrain for track building. Also, the Gruber Trust has expanded their parking area to allow more room for camping, so we are looking forward to that. We would like to thank Bluewater Divers for sponsoring this round.

We would like to remind everyone that the $5 temporary fall membership is going on, so if you’re new to OCCRA and want to give racing a shot, this is a good opportunity to run 1 round for very little cost.

Big Black’s BBQ will be out food vendor this round, so be sure to show you support.

Saturday evening will be a Turkey Egg Hunt for the younger racers. This will take place on the short course track, and this event is free to participate.

We will also have our Bible Study at the scoring trailer at 7:00pm Saturday evening. We invite anyone and everyone to attend.

As always, be sure to visit the website for any additional information, driving directions, and GPS coordinates, and keep an eye on Facebook for any additional information.

Be on the lookout for the race flier later this week.

Check and/or Update Your Rider Info

Racers, As many of you know, the officers have been busy working with Rocky Mountain on the Race Gas program, and getting everyone credited for completed races. In addition to getting this lined out, we have made a video to walk everyone through the process of checking your email address in Mototally. Please watch the video carefully, and then go check your Mototally info and be sure it matches your Rocky Mountain info.

As of now, we will leave this available until next Wednesday, at which point we will lock it down to prep for next weekends race. It will then be evaluated whether to open this back up or not.

Please let us know if you have any questions.

Update Info: http://www.moto-tally.com/occra/SeriesRegistration.aspx

Info About 2018 RMATV Race Gas Program

The Rocky Mountain ATV/MC Race Gas program has changed quite a bit since last year.  We have received a lot of questions.  The information contained in this email was also passed out at the scoring trailer and will continue to be available there in the future.  Please read below and pass this information on to anyone you think might not be getting the message.

Rocky Mountain ATV MC is an amazing sponsor that gives OCCRA riders a $10.00 credit online to each racer that competes in an OCCRA event. Be sure and thank them every chance you get. There will be no more Rocky Mountain ATV/MC cards mailed out. Everything is now online so you can get your credit faster and you won’t have to type in the entire card number to use them!

OCCRA results are submitted to Rocky Mountain ATV/MC after each race and then Rocky Mountain ATV/MC applies the credit to your Rocky Mountain account. You can check your balance at any time by going online to www.Rockymountainatvmc.com or by calling 801-465-3140.

All you have to do to get the credit for each race is to make sure the email address that you put on your OCCRA membership form matches the email address on the Rocky Mountain ATV/MC account you want the credit to go to. For instance if you have children, and you have the only Rocky Mountain ATV/MC account in the family, you would want all of your kid’s membership forms to have the email address that matches your Rocky Mountain ATV/MC account.

Steps to check your balance:

  1. Go online, login, and click the “RM cash” at the top of the RM website and it will give you your balance.
  2. IF you see a $0 balance or you think you are missing some credits you will have to call Rocky Mountain.
  3. When you call RM be sure to give them your name and email address that you gave OCCRA. They can then look to see if you have credits anywhere else.
  4. IF you have credits that are not showing online, you will have to place an order over the phone to get those credits.Notes:

Notes:

  • OCCRA results are sent after each race (we have about 2 weeks). Once results are submitted there are no later submissions or corrections allowed.
  • There is no longer a Race Gas credit for membership
  • 1 credit per rider per event, not per entry (same as before)
  • Credits expire after 45 days from the time they are applied to the account (not from the race date)
  • All credits go to your Rocky Mountain ATV/MC account.  There are no more cards.  You HAVE to have an e-mail address.
  • These same rules will apply to any race series that participates in the program.

Be sure you check often and call often. The credit will only last for 45 days and then it will expire. RM says that they will email you before your credits expire, but I wouldn’t chance missing an email.

Remember that this is an AWESOME benefit provided BY Rocky Mountain ATV/MC to riding series around the nation with no strings attached.  When you call them regarding credits, please be courteous, patient and give them your thanks.

Thank you,
OCCRA Officers

Round 5 Updates

Round 5 at in Indiahoma is this weekend. We would liek to thank David Brown and Brown Oil Tools for their support this round. Be sure to thank David when you see him at the track.

The track is similar to last year, but with some new sections. The long course is 7 miles long with 2 creek crossings, and will be a fast track. Womens short course is 3.7 miles long, and also have 2 creek crossings and a few high speed sections. At this time, I do not have mini track details. Thanks to Russell Doughty, David Brown, Shane Apple, Tim Glandon, Batman and his crew marking and getting it ready to race this weekend!

With the warmer weather we have been having, be sure to drink plenty of water this week and stay hydrated. Also, be sure to stay weather aware this week as we have expected severe weather leading up to this weekend.

Look closely at the schedule, as we have adjust race times a little as well as practice times.

Diamond C Cross Custom Smoked Meats will be on site with delicious food all weekend. And be sure to visit Trackside Supply for any parts or repairs you need at the race.

We will be having a few special events on Saturday evening. Look for a post in the next day or so with details. Also, be sure to attend the Bible Study at the scoring trailer on Saturday evening at 7pm.

Reminder that gates open at 3pm on Friday, and we ask that racers wait until that time or after to arrive so that the officers have time to get ready, gate attendants to arrive, and details like gate flyers make it on-site.

Thank you all and we will see you this weekend at Baldwin Ranch.

Second Round of 2018 Promotions

Racers, We are pleased to announce the new round of promotions. I would like to congratulate everyone on their accomplishments racing and the pursuit to get faster. The officers have spent hours upon hours evaluating times, as we always do when evaluating times and classes. So, without further adieu, here is the list by group.

Round 4 Update

Round 4 Update!!! As of now the race is on as scheduled. We have been monitoring the forecast, but all agree from past experience that Pettijohn’s land can take on quite a bit of moisture and still be good to race. It will be wet, and cold. Be sure to pack warm clothes, rain gear, mud boots, and maybe scuba gear just to be safe!! 😂😂 We will see you all soon. Gates open at 3 p.m. Please be courteous of that and please do not show up early. Thank you.

Also, please do not camp along the tree line along the creek. The track will run along the north side of creek. If you are unsure of this location, please find an officer and confirm before you set up camp.

Urgent – Round 3 Postponed

We regret to inform that we are having to postpone this round until the rain date June 9th and 10th. Postponing was already borderline with the forecasted cold temperatures, but with the rain they received today it has made the parking area impassible. We already have a few officers who attempted to get in and are currently stuck.

We apologize for the late notice, but we do not want to destroy the land owner property, and do not want to see people having damaged RV’s and toy haulers from getting stuck.

Please share this post, and call your friends and families to let them know. Again, sorry for the late notice. We were hopeful conditions would be better then they are.

3 Days to Fry Lake 2018!

Racers, we are 3 days away from Round 2 at Fry Lake in Seminole. We would like to thank the fine people at Ajax Motorsports for sponsoring this round, and their continued support to our series. Check them out for all your offroad and onroad bike needs.

The weather is looking good this weekend, with temps at or near 80 all weekend. Lows should hover around mid to upper 50’s, but there is a moderate chance of some rain on Sunday. Be sure to stay hydrated, as we have not had warmer temps for racing in a while.

As mentioned by the medics last round, with the warmer temps we will start seeing snakes. If you see any snakes at Fry Lake, please leave them alone and do not mess with them.

Reminder of construction on I-40 east of OKC. Las time I was out there, it was 2 lanes with walls on both sides on the line. Be careful going through there with your RV’s and toy haulers.

Hopefully everyone has removed those pesky sandburrs and stickers from Woodward. If you haven’t, please do so before coming to Fry Lake. Cole Williams has posted a video on the pages with a good method for removing them from tires. Be sure to check it out.

Bible study will take place on Saturday evening. We invite you all to attend, and thanks to the members that lead this each round.

Just as a reminder, we have some rules to keep in mind this weekend. Anyone under the age of 18 must wear a helmet at all times on a motorized offroad vehicle. No exceptions. Also, there is no pit riding allowed. Please keep your young riders off their bikes and quads except for race time, and to and from the starting area for their race. This will be strictly enforced. Also, as of 4:45pm on 3/19, Seminole county and all surrounding counties are not under a burn ban, but please use extreme caution with any open flames. Do not leave them unattended.

Last but not least, be sure to attend the Dirt Bike Limbo on Saturday evening at 6:15, following bike practice. This event is being sponsored by E.J. Images, so thanks to Emily J. Cohlmia for getting this event in place.

Gates open at 3pm on Friday, so we will see everyone out there after that time. Visit the link below for directions, GPS coordinates, and other info for this round.

Race Gas Program Updates

Attention riders!

Rocky Mountain ATV/MC has revamped and upgraded their Race Gas program for the 2018 season.  For the most part, the program is the same.  RMATVMC is still giving you that awesome $10 credit per round but now, instead of being delivered by mail, it will now be electronically credited to your Rocky Mountain account.  So you will now be able to get to your Race Gas even quicker.  They are even going to send out notification of Race Gas added to your account and reminders to use your Race Gas credit before it expires.  With that being said, it is all tied to your email address now, so it is important that your correct e-mail address is on file with OCCRA.

  • Make sure your email address is legibly written on your membership form.
  • The e-mail you give us should match the e-mail you use for your RMATV account.
  • If you don’t yet have a RMATV account, you can create one from the credit notification e-mail that you will get from RMATV.

These are exciting new changes from Rocky Mountain that will make it faster and easier for you to get and use your Race Gas.  Be sure to thank RMATVMC for this awesome service to the riding community in your post race write-ups!

So the big takeaway from this post – OCCRA MUST HAVE YOUR CORRECT EMAIL ADDRESS ON FILE TO GET RACE GAS!

OCCRA Remembers Former President Mack Spurlock

OCCRA is saddened to hear that former OCCRA President Mack “Mack Daddy” Spurlock has passed. Mack was OCCRA President for several years in the late ’90s and early ’00s and was a strong advocate for the riding community. We would like to extend prayers and best wishes to the Spurlock family from the OCCRA family.

Schedule Change for Rounds 1 & 2

***Announcement***

Schedule changes – OCCRA Members and Racers, After a long day of discussions with land owners and officers, we are making a location change. Round 1 and Round 2 locations are going to switch. Fry Lake has taken on too much water from the winter precipitation and the recent rains. So, here is the schedule for the first 2 rounds.

March 10th-11th – Round 1 – Terbush Ranch in Woodward, OK
March 24th-25th – Round 2 – Fry Lake in Seminole, OK

I will be posting updated flyers this evening, as well as some additional information for Round 1 at Terbush Ranch. Be on the lookout!!

Rule Proposal Outcomes

  • Team quad was split into an A/B

Save the Stillwater 500!

The Stillwater 500 needs the help of the riding community.  Let’s all band together to help save this riding area!


The Stillwater 500 Riding Area is presently scheduled for closure as of January 31, 2018 at which time prorated refunds for annual permits will be made. The City of Stillwater notified the Stillwater Trail Riders this week that they do not plan to renew the Lease Agreement. We are all sick and much effort is being made to find a way to keep the Park.
If the Stillwater 500 has impacted your life in a positive way and you want to provide comments and personal examples/testimonies in hopes of helping to influence a re-assessment of the decision, please email them to: supportourpark@stillwater500.com. We are approaching this situation with integrity and legal assistance, so please keep comments appropriately positive.

Thank you so much! These comments will become a part of the supporting documents to be shared with the City of Stillwater as efforts are made to regain the use of the Stillwater 500 Riding Area.

PLEASE EMAIL YOUR SUPPORT MESSAGES TO supportourpark@stillwater500.com

Banquet Date Adjustment

Hello everyone. It appears that there was a miscommunication with our events center and our banquet reservation was made for January 13th. So please adjust your calendars and accept our most sincere apologies for the mix-up. Just to reiterate, the 2017 Season Awards Banquet and Member Meeting is on January 13th, 2018.

The 2017 Season Finale is Here!

Wow, can you believe that another season is almost over? We’re within 5 days of kicking off the 2017 season finale at Sundog Trails! This race is sponsored by Innovative Comfort Solutions and that certainly seems like a timely placement because it looks like it’s going to be a chilly weekend! Time to check your heat pump and check your gear bag to make sure you pack the necessities for a chilly weekend! Sundog Trails will be providing a concession stand.

As for this weekend we have an awesome final round planned. A host of volunteers and current/future officers, led by David Brown, have been out at the track laying out the course and cutting in new trail. Amazingly, these courses don’t just materialize out of thin air and we are super appreciative of the wonderful folks that give up their off weekends to build our race tracks!

You can expect some wooded sections, some high speed beach and of, course, a bunch ‘o sand! The exact layout will be revealed this weekend after we see how much water soaks in and what the river level is at. Regardless, it should be fun! Note the Saturday schedule – it had to be tweaked a little to accommodate the decreasing light situation and a shared track.

Now after the races on Saturday, we hope you stick around for some trick or treating for the kids and a walk through the spooky mini track. The spooky forest is spearheaded by Amy and Bobby McIntire! We also encourage everyone that is interested to dress up or decorate your camp site. 

The OCCRA scoring folks are also going to be handing out goodie bags to our awesome youth racers at registration AND Trackside Supply is going to be providing holeshot awards for the kiddos. Sounds like the kids are really in for a good haul this weekend!

We can’t wait to see everyone for one last round in the 2017 season. This is a great spectator track, so bring your family and friends to watch you race or – even better – bring some buddies out to take advantage of the discounted fall membership. Please share this with your friends and we’ll see you this weekend! #occra #xcracing #sundogtrails
