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!


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.

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

Fantastic Race at Fry Lake

What a FANTASTIC weekend for a race! The weather was perfect and it was certainly nice to have a little moisture in the soil. A big thanks goes out to Dave Campbell and his Fry Lake crew that put together two separate tracks and invited us to their awesome property to have an event. We would also like to thank Ajax Motorsports for not only sponsoring this event, but also for putting on the fun bike games Saturday evening. We really appreciate your support!

Round 10 was also officer election time. Since no positions ran contested, there was no election held. I will announce the new officers in a separate post, but I can definitely say that we appreciate the fine folks that have stepped forward and look forward to building a great series for 2018!

Next stop is OCCRA 2017 Rd 11 Discoveryland XC near Sand Springs, OK, generously sponsored by Ram Jack of Oklahoma & Arkansas! I have to say that I think this is a pretty cool spot. The camping area is awesome…nice and flat with a bunch of space. Terrain is relatively flat but very wooded…I think it’s pretty similar to Skiatook if you’re looking for a comparison. We also have a cookout planned for this event – OCCRA and Lampton Welding Supply in conjunction with Schwab Meat Co will be providing the burgers and dogs and condiments. We just ask that you bring a side or dessert to share and a drink for yourself. $10 Fall membership will also continue, so bring your friends.
Anyway, have a great couple of weeks and we’ll see you in Sand Springs!

Join the 2017 Member Focus Group

The Oklahoma Cross Country Racing Association Board of Directors are seeking members to join a focus group to help discover areas of success and areas for improvement.  We would like to seek input from members well in advance of the 2018 season so that we can factor in your feedback and desires as we build a 2018 championship series.

Once you have signed up for the list, you will receive a series of surveys, covering a range of topics.  Questions will range from feedback on recent events, to opinions on organizational issues, to ideas for 2018.  Participants will have ample opportunity to offer feedback and propose solutions.

Fall Schedule Updates

The fall half of the season is approaching and we are looking forward to heading out to a new location on the circuit – Big Fox Run in Cameron, OK. I’ll have a lot more info about this location in the next couple of days, but in the meantime I have some more schedule information to share.
So some of you may have already heard, but Lafferty Motorsports has shut the gate and will no longer be a riding area. So yet again, we are faced with another change. The positive side of the situation is that we now get to go to a new location on the circuit – Discoveryland OK. Discoveryland is actually a public riding area, so not only will we be able to try a new place, we will also be able to contribute new trails to their trail system for everyone to enjoy.
Due to time constraints of adding new trail, we have worked with the landowners to swap the locations for round 9 and 11. So we will now be going to Baldwin Ranch for Round 9 (this track was built over the summer, so is ready to go) and will head to Discoveryland for Round 11. We are very excited about both of these new locations as they hold a lot of potential for being perennial visits on the circuit and are very appreciative of these property owners for inviting us to their land to hold our races!
Now I want to close this by saying that while it has been a bummer of a season in terms of reschedules, the real loss is in the public riding areas that we are no longer able to visit on non-race weekends. I think this really highlights the importance of patronizing these public riding areas on off weekends and spreading the word to other riders. That’s how we keep these places open and profitable.
I summed up the revised fall schedule into the attached graphic. Please share this info with your friends so that they are up-to-date. Thanks to all of our riders and officers for being so flexible this season and we’ll see you in just a few short weeks for OCCRA 2017 Rd 8 Big Fox Run XC!

Location Change for Round 11

Unfortunately, we have had to make yet another location change for the 2017 season.  Round 11 will now be held at a member owned property of approximately 300 acres just west of Lawton.  It offers wooded areas, desert-like mesquite, gradual elevation change and a huge canyon for us to play in.  You don’t have to worry about rocks and the soil is a nice, black loam.  The parking area is about 17 acres and is nice and flat.  Although we were definitely looking forward to the Seminole location and regret having to change, at the same time, as they say, where one door closes another one opens.  We now get to explore a new location with a lot of potential and hopefully a good run on our circuit!  We are very appreciative of the landowner and to the round sponsor – Ram Jack of Oklahoma & Arkansas for helping us present this round!

You can get directions and other information as we add it on the event page: http://www.occra.com/events/2017rd11/

Good morning guys and gals. Round 7 is coming up and we need to tackle an issue – displaying your numbers. We’re going to start with quads and it’s really pretty simple. We need you all to have your numbers displayed from the front AND rear of your quad. So basically, you need to obtain […]

Round 8 Location Announced: Big Fox Run in Eastern OK

We are excited to announce that Round 8 will be held at a new location (to us) – Big Fox Run near Poteau, OK. This location is a lush, wooded property of over 400 acres and the property owner has already offered for our members to stay an extra day and ride recreationally after the race. Very cool. Thank you Big Fox Run for welcoming us to your property this fall!

Wilson’s Dirt Park XC Recap

It turned out to be a beautiful weekend to try out a new location in Weatherford. As most of you know, this was a very last minute change in venue and we most sincerely thank Wilson’s DirtPark for welcoming us to their property on such short notice. This was definitely another track for the throttle […]

Info About Round 6 at Wilson’s Dirt Park

While we were all enjoying a beautiful Mother’s Day weekend, our awesome Track Directors were out toiling away at Wilson’s DirtPark preparing the location for our upcoming race.
Wilson’s Dirt Park will offer a layout that will appeal to riders that liked Rush Springs and is very similar all almost all regards. It’s a fast track, totaling 5 miles for the long course. You’ll start with 1 mile of very mild MX, then a mile of open woods and ravine trails, then another mile of the MX and then 2 miles of flowing grass track. The grass track sections are mowed, so it will be very easy to follow the trail. The grass track sections utilize terraces for jumps and fun banked turns. Like Rush Springs, we are looking for our racers to respect the layout and race the track we put out there for you. Due to the shorter length of the track, we will once again use 30 second starts.
Now to the parking situation. We have a very nice parking area available at Wilson’s. The parking area is flat and the landowner mowed the whole area for us. Thank you!
This is another good spectator location as a good majority of the track is visible from the camping area, so you’ll be able to keep tabs on those exciting battles. We need race fans to be very aware of track crossings and at this location we do not want a lot of vehicles crossing the track.
I know you’re also all glued to the news channels as they talk about this week’s stormy forecast. We’re keeping an eye on it as well, but as far as the location goes, it can handle a good amount of rain and a decent rain would probably make for epic soil conditions.
Now for the thank yous – let’s give a pat on the back to David Brown, Quinton Cranford, Jason LaHood, Garret Young, Russell Doughty and the landowner of Wilson’s. Like I said before, these folks spent their weekend laying out, marking and preparing the track instead of just kicking back and enjoying the beautiful weather. Thanks again, guys. Your hard work means the world to all of us racers!
Now trudge through the week and we’ll see you all in Weatherford for Round 6!

Rush Springs Prep in Yucky Weather

Teamwork makes the dream work! With just one weekend to prep a new track, our options were pretty much to drop the round or get to work and make it happen. This awesome team of officers and members said we want to race!! So it to Pettijohn’s Off-Road Park they went to scout, layout, trim […]

Change of Venue for Round 6

We regret to have to say that we are having to switch the location for Round 6.  The Arbuckle Offroad Park has been sold and will no longer be a riding area.  This news came suddenly, but fortunately we were able to find a location to move the race to that officers will be able to add a track to very quickly.  The new location for Round 6 will be Wilson’s Dirt Park in Weatherford, OK.  Thank you to the owners of this new location for being flexible and accommodating us at a short notice.  Stay tuned for more information about the track features and thank you for your patience.

Round 2 Heads to Buckhorn Track and Trail in Ada

Ok race fans, we are primed and ready to head to Jupie’s place in Ada for 2017 Round 2!  Ada is always a racer favorite and has a great mix of soil types, elevation change, some easy MX, multiple line options and some places to crank the throttle and show off!  Spectators can enjoy easy […]
