ATTENTION IN THE PADDOCK


While reviewing/updating the OMRL By-Laws for the 2023 season, it has come to the attention that we need to fill the role of Safety Director on the board.


The role for the safety director within the By-Laws is defined as the following:

Safety Director - Responsible for assembling Corner workers, conducting tech inspection of all motorcycles and rider equipment. May enlist the help of any other league member to assist in the process.


Andrew Farkas has asked to have his name placed into the hat to move to this position.


As a result of Farkas' request, he has officially resigned his position as club treasurer and, therefore, the club will need to follow the election procedure for that role as well.


The treasurer position is defined as the following:

Treasurer - Works with Secretary and team during checkin/registration; will compose/submit event recap sheets showing profit/loss for each event; make deposits into the OMRL bank account in a timely manner after each event.


If you would like to nominate yourself to either one of these elected positions, you MUST submit an email to ohiominiroadracingleague@gmail.com. Within the email, please include any pertinent information you would like the club to know on why you feel you would fit well within the role.


Deadline to submit your nomination will be February 28, 2023. As a member of the board, you are required to attend at least 50% of the events for the year. If you are unable to attend a minimum of 50% of the events, you will be deemed ineligible.


The election date will be posted once the remaining board has had an opportunity to review all potential candidates. To anyone who was an official 2022 Season License Holder will be able to cast their vote on who they would like to elect to fill these two positions.


If we only receive one person for each role, they will win by default as unopposed.


Look forward to updating everyone after Feb. 28, 2023 with more details!

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:
