Unfortunately the construction being done at the Belmont county fairgrounds has pushed into the spring due to a bad winter and extremely wet spring. I think the fair board had hoped to have this work completed before now, but it has not. I received this message from Ed:

Due to the construction taking place on the fairgrounds with the roadways being taken out, various ditch lines running across the pit and grounds our executive board felt that it was in the best interest to temporarily close the motocross track. An evaluation will be done in July to see if we will be able to reopen at this time . Please bare with us , this is being done for the safety and welfare of everyone

So at this time there will not be a Spring Series round at Mx213 next weekend. This round will not be made up.  Racers will only need to race 2 rounds to be award eligible now.

There was an oversight on the Ross County Faircross Race at Chillitown Mx on our 2015 schedule.  The race will be held on August 14th, not on the 7th as on the printed schedule!  Please spread the word, sorry for the inconvenience!

It’s that time again!!!! Our first practice of the season will be this Saturday, the 28th! Everything is the same as last year…bikes and quads, 10am-4pm, $25/rider, spectators free. If you’re camping out with us, we’ll come around Saturday evening to collect gate fees for Sunday’s race. Gates open at 6 am on Sunday, sign up starts at 7, practice at 830, and racing about 10! The forecast has changed about 7 times in 3 days, but as of right now we’re looking at 45 degrees for Sunday, but no rain or snow! Keep an eye on here for any updates. See everyone this weekend!!!

Today we flip the switch on the OMA Membership sales. The first 25 signups will receive a free OMA Beanie! Just a heads up we have increased the membership fee to $25 this year. Now sit down for a minute and consider the facts:

1. OMA is a non profit organization, so all funds are being spent for your benefit.
2. We want to improve the awards for the banquet, nice big metal improvements.
3. The competition charges $25, and I feel we do at least as good a job if not better.

With about a month away, we are getting closer to riding season. So get your card today, and at least feel like you are doing something to help get the ball rolling toward spring. The link goes live at noon. I will throw in a free OMA drawstring bag for the first person to successfully sign up. For those in the dark, the OMA bag comes with a t-shirt, lanyard, towel, and stickers.
