We are pleased to announce the addition of the Amherst Meadowlarks to the OMA!! Amherst brings a rich tradition of Motocross in Ohio, and they want to carry on that tradition and improve the motocross landscape for Ohio. This will be the last and final expansion track to the OMA for 2016.
We are planning to drop a couple classes next season. We will not be offering the Girls class or Vet 30+A. Too many points issues regarding 30+A with guys who have to run Vet 30+A (At Battle) by their rider classification, but also want to run Vet 30+ for year end points. And the girls class has been lacking enough participation to keep it going, and given the fact that there are classes available for both boys and girls to race at their given ages and machine sizes, we dont feel that we are prohibiting anyone from racing our events.
I’m pleased to announce the first major change to the OMA for 2016. We will be adding a “D” designation class for beginning racers, there will be no year end points for this class, and we reserve the right to bump any rider out of the class if we feel they are above this level or if they should be at a higher level. We will also be adding a 125cc 2 stroke class. This is the name of it, we will determine the CC limits prior to the first indoor event at Summit.
Additionally, KTM is back onboard for the Battle for Ohio Series, and they are putting together a year end contingency package for the Overall OMA Series!
I’m also very pleased to announce the 2016 track additions to the OMA (In no certain order):
They will join the existing tracks:
