Your race club is very excited to invite you to our 1st race of 2021!
If you thought last years record breaking season was fun, wait until you see what we have for you this year!
**OPT IN to text services to get helpful info** Everyone but Mini riders please text OCCRA to 833.528.1533. Mini riders can text OCCRAMINI to the same number but get Mini specific info. This is a different one from last years.
Did we mention we are raffling off a brand new Kawasaki KX250 dirt bike Saturday Night? You can get raffle tickets at the early sign up February 20th or up to the Saturday Bike race (about 2pm on the 27th). Saturday evening someone is getting a new bike from OCCRA! We can celebrate during our Bonfire/Karaoke event!
Round 1 is at the very popular Red Rock XC in Hinton, OK nick named “The Equalizer”. Its a really FUN sand track with some elevation changes, flows well through the woods and of course has some fast open sections. Gates will open at 3pm Friday the 26th. Feel free to camp but there are no hook ups. Courtesy reminder, if you have a quiet generator you will make way more friends than those with loud ones.
If you have not got or renewed your membership for 2021 there are 3 ways you can do that. Online registration opens on the 22nd. We will be at 5th Gear Cycle in Broken Arrow from 10-3 tomorrow (Feb 20th). You can also sign up at the races. To make the flow at the 1st few races go smoother we will have a sign up tent so be looking for that. The scoring trailer is business as usual except for membership sign up. **CASH or CHECK ONLY**.
We would love it if you take a look at who sponsors our races. Lets support the people that support your race club. A full list of our 2021 sponsors is on our website and will also be on the back of the flyers but each race has 2 featured sponsors.
Altus Motorsports is a fantastic shop that stays well stocked and gives generous discounts to OCCRA members. If you are looking for great advice, service, parts/accessories or a new machine they will take good care of you.
is also sponsoring Round 1. Many of us have boats, RV’s and other toys with no space at home. Reach out to them at 405.301.9828 to see how they can help you store your toys.
Can you believe we are just over a week away from the 1st flag drop of the season? Our Special Events Coordinator Kirby Evans has put together a FUN season of events. Here is a preview of what she has come up with:
- HINTON: Bonfire/karaoke/bike giveaway
- Cache: Littles XC
- OKC: Littles XC
- Arkansas: we will be working with AXC on this specifics TBA!
- Skiatook: Littles XC
- Guthrie: organized activities with AJAX MOTORSPORTS to benefit MPH
- Stroud: Enjoy the lake
- Cameron: Power wheels
- Ardmore: Potluck
- Cleveland: Littles XC
- Ada: Littles XC
In order the be in Littles XC:
- You must be a member of OCCRA, you can be on a family membership for no extra charge.
- If riding a motorized bike you must have a DOT approved helmet on. If riding a strider it does not have to be DOT approved but you must wear a helmet.
- There will be a $10 entry fee for each race this is so we can provide a personalized hoodie at the end of the season to the members in Littles XC
- It is recommended to have number plates on bikes OR numbers on fronts of shirts.
Your race club is very excited to present a new level of organization when it comes to getting your 35 Work Points.
In the past, you would pretty much just show up on the day you wanted to earn your 35 Work Points and hope to get the job you wanted. Now, we have simplified that process by moving to an online registration. If you want to be a flagger at RD 7 for example, you can follow this link right now and reserve that position.
It is still possible but risky to just “show up”. There may not be available positions and/or you may not get the position you want.
The goal of this new and long overdue process is to improve awareness of Work Points, responsibilities related to working races and to help ensure the positions and days racers want to work are available to those that engage in this new platform.
We would love to discuss any constructive questions you have on this post. If you have a confrontation, please send us a private message.
Please help us spread the word to those that do not get our posts, texts or visit our website.

Yes, you will have to comply with the guidelines we are all required to follow to be incompliance to have a successful event. This includes but is not limited to wearing a mask.
There are no actual tickets so when we refer to having tickets its a figure of speech. We have a list of everyone that bought a “ticket” and will be checking you off the list as you enter.
We have worked hard to minimize the impact these restrictions will have on you but we are all in this together and is the only way the banquet can happen. Thank you for your understanding.
