I know we were shooting for March 1 on memberships. In light of the recent tragedy for the Rogers family, I have decided to move the date out one week out of respect for the family. We will have final rule book out this week, and memberships will begin March 8th.
2021 Battle Schedule is out!
Round 1 – Malvern, May 21-23
Round 2 – Briarcliff, June 4-6
Round 3 – Chillitown, July 9-11
Round 4 – Pleasure Valley, August 27-29
We will be TEAMING up with the tracks that are apart of Race Ohio and PAMX on memberships and accepting either OMA, PAMX, or Race Ohio/Buckeye Series memberships at the Battle Rounds this year. You will need to purchase one of those memberships, if you show up at a track without it, you will be purchasing an OMA membership at sign up. It is still an Ohio State Championship Series for AMA No.1 plates, but it is gravitating toward a regional series. Now it really is North vs South vs Invader, as we will see the first ever OMA vs Buckeye vs PAMX Clash!
We are adding a grand finale event to the OMA Schedule! The 2020 season will now end at Route 62 on October 31 & Nov 1. They are running this as a battle format, it will count for DOUBLE overall points! More details to come.
OMA Faircross Update. Unfortunately the large majority of County Fairs are cancelling all grandstand events. With that in mind we have received word from Holmes, Ashland, and the Tuscarawas Fair Boards that we will not be having Faircross races at those fairgrounds this year. These events will not be rescheduled…..I know someone will ask.The Summit County Faircross will count for OMA Overall points only.
Huge thanks to everyone that made the 6th annual OMA Banquet such a huge success. But its definitely not just me and Jason putting this together. Its a crew. Prior to the event, we have Connie Sickels coordinating all of the RSVPs even through the holidays, she is a super trooper. We also have amazing sponsors stepping up. Mid-Ohio Powersports, WPS/Fly Racing, Tucker Powersports/Ansr Racing, 100%, Rocky Mountain, Sunstar, Ripped Vinyl, Wholesale Cycle/Pirahana Pitbikes, Rock Auto, SRS Suspension and Rusty Riders helped us get things together. On Friday, which is setup day, we had Tina Rogers, Connie Sickels, Wendy Johnson, Nate Fugit, Amanda Toth, Austin Clark, Patty Burwell, Haley Freeman, Luke Henry, and Dave Hoover. And then on Saturday, many of the people from Friday, and then include Cara Kinsey Allison Osborn, Jim Green, Bobby Noah, Whitney Bingham, Lynne, Jessica, and Jarrett Strouble, and Jason Rogers. If I missed anyone, yell at me, I’m sorry. We did the best that we could, I think it went well overall, and the kids had an amazing time, which is really what this is about.

Due to the severity of the Winter Weather Storm that we have arriving in Ohio on Saturday, January 19, 2019, we feel that for the safety of everyone, we are rescheduling the 2018 OMA Banquet for February 2, 2019. This was a very difficult decision. We apologize for any inconvenience this causes for our members.
