    I want to continue the Family Fun Racing that the club is based around because the OCCRA is a special group and I want to take on the roll of leading the group.
  • Mary Doughty

Vice President

  • Wesley Darnell
    We have an amazing organization and I just want to keep our organization moving forward. I have been a volunteer firefighter for over 10 years things learned over those 10 years will help me settle in this role of pushing forward.

Mini Director

  • Russell Doughty

Race Director

  • Benny Darnell

Scoring Director

  • Jessica Cochran
    I have always appreciated that from a member’s perspective, OCCRA is run using efficient processes with a frontline of passionate officials.
    My goal is for my professional experience to contribute to continuing what already exists to the best of my ability.  I Also want to lend any knowledge or ideas to improve this role or any organizational matter should I be invited to do so.
    2020 will be my 4th year as an XC moto mom!!  My first experience at OOCRA was feeling shocked, and I yelled at my boys to “slow down” but now you’ll hear me scream at them “GO FASTER!!!” every race, every time.  
    Kent and I have attended nearly every race weekend quad and bike days for 3 years.  We started with NO experience in this type of sport but due to the help of officials and great people, we now help others or fill in as part of the team where we are needed.  I hope to start racing (super beginner style), and my goal now is to contribute to OCCRA, becoming part of the “official” race family team.  
    Although I am running for the membership and scoring position, I can do about anything and I’m up for most challenges!   Let’s race!
  • Emily Cohlmia
