Get ready for a fun mix of sand, woods, hill climbs and fast open field sections....with a bit of motocross track mixed in. Did we mention there was some sand? Woodward always proves to be more and more interesting with each new race season, so expect some of your favorite stuff from years past along with new challenges!
Please visit the concession stand for some delicious burgers and snacks.
The Woodward race will also feature giveaways sponsored by DeWalt, Sonic of Woodward and Loves of Woodward. Register by 8:30 a.m. to race or work this weekend and you will be automatically entered into the drawing.
Last but not least, we have a fun special event planned for Saturday evening. Everyone don your chaps and cowboy hats as OCCRA will be hosting a moto barrel racing event! Bikes and quads can participate with prizes to the best times. Entry is $1 per attempt or 6 attempts for $5. Let's see who has some serious cornering skills!
Ron Rader Reports:
We are just about finished with the Woodward track. The bike course should be pretty close to 9 miles and the quad course will be around 7 miles. There are a couple of new transitions and the course is split up different than the last race. For those who have never been to the Woodward track, you can expect some up and down hill runs, some tight woods sections, some wide open passing areas separating the tighter areas, a few off cambers, some sand, some red dirt, some brown dirt, a trail beside the river and maybe a couple of things we haven't done yet. The mini trail will be back on the west side of the property where it was in the past and should be somewhere in the 2 mile ballpark and will be fairly spectator friendly.
Vic has been mowing the parking areas. Yes there are sand burrs but if everyone will walk around in their socks we can all help to pick them up. Everyone should feel free to help themselves to as many of the sand burrs as they would like.
Thanks to Ron and Cody for all you guys have put into this track.
Thanks to Rocky Shaw w/Rock Solid Waste Management 580-254-3121 for providing the Trash Service for this weekend’s event.
Registration and the concession stand will be located inside the barn next to the scoring trailer.
Well it certainly got cold this weekend, didn't it? Spectators had to bundle up to watch the quads race, but the temps were not doubt perfect for the racers. Though the conditions were dry, the dust was not excessive in most places. This year's track started up the sandy hill and ended up with a race down the motocross track to the scoring trailer. Sunday's temperatures were a bit more moderate and made for a nice day for both spectators and racers. Saturday night, we had quite a crowd gather for the barrel racing event, with Levi Hightower taking the honors of fastest through the barrels. Thank you to everyone that made the trek up to Woodward for this race...the consensus after the fact seems to be that everyone really enjoyed the track layout and generally had a great time. See you at MPH Part II!
Helmets will be required as always for all ages. No riding on the asphalt. Adults do not have to wear a helmet while operating or riding as a passenger in a SxS or a golf cart, however kids (17 and under) still have to wear their helmet.
About the Location:
The Woodward track is located on 350 acres of wooded land. It is a native hunter's paradise that has river frontage, high speed straightaways, woodland, sand and loamy soil with plenty of cedar trees, sand hills and even some light motocross action. If you've raced here before, don't get overconfident as the landowners do a great job of mixing up the track every year to present a totally new experience.
