News

Attention in the paddock!

Hope everyone had a great holiday season with their friends and families! We are just over one week away from our yearly awards banquet. We hope to see everyone show up for some karting, food, and celebration.

The board has voted and wanted to update everyone of our stock moto CRF100 riders on a rule update.

We know that parts for the CRF100 are becoming scarce and far more difficult to find. As a result, the club is always investigating different options that maintain the spirit of a low cost competitive class. Rear shocks have been incredibly difficult to find and many requested an alternative option. We have reviewed two shocks that we believe to be very comparable to the stock shock that we will be allowing in the stock moto class on the CRF100.

First Shock Option: Kitaco Shock Absorber 520-1122220

Second Shock Option: Shift Up Reinforced Rear Shock 201588

We will still allow riders to change the spring if they feel necessary.

We will be updating the 2022 rulebook to update these new permissions.

As always, please feel free to reach out if you have any questions or concerns.

OMRL uses the awards banquet as an opportunity to discuss other rules changes that are brought up by the racing community. If you have any rules clarifications or adjustments that you wish to see for 2022, please bring them with you to the banquet for discussion.

Look forward to seeing most of you next weekend!

Due to the threat of rain Sunday, October 3 the race has been moved to Saturday, October 2 for a combined practice/race. There is no longer a Sunday race! 

The race day schedule has been also modified to accommodate the combined practice/race day:

Registration 8:30am - 10:30 am

Practice From 9am-1pm

Racing to start shortly after 1pm.

It's race week. We are heading to PIRC for Round-4 of the 2021 Season! 

Great News for the paddock! We have claimed the track for Saturday practice between 4-8pm! 

Remember to PRE-REGISTER for Sunday if you haven't already!

PIRC is the best track that we host and we hope to see everyone make the trip! If you've never ridden it before, you are in for a treat! This track has it all - long straights, flowing sections, elevation changes, technical turns, etc. The surface is amazing and the facilities are awesome! 

Friendly reminder that PIRC pricing is different from the rest of the tracks we attend due to the higher cost of renting the track. Racing fees are $100 for Sunday and $50 for Saturday Practice. Because we are renting the track for Saturday evening, they usually do NOT allow us to split time during the day with karts.

Camping is allowed Friday night for those who are able to make it.

Hope everyone is as excited as I am for this weekend! See you all then!

A message from the OMRL Treasurer:

For those of you looking for Kuzas in preparation of the 2021 season - They are available for purchase at www.AvailMotorsports.com.

I have the limited remaining stock KENDA has on hand already coming in and I suggest buying when they become available. Otherwise, you will have to wait a few more weeks until next shipment comes in from overseas. Please understand KENDA, is doing their best to meet our demand and has unfortunately felt the squeeze of COVID in these unprecedented times.

OMRL licensed members receive them at club pricing, so make sure you contact me directly for discount code!


Get your pre-registration done early!  We have opened registration for Round-1 at Fremont Raceway Park!


Racing can't get here soon enough!!!
