February 11, 2020

The Awards Banquet was fun and now its time to get started on the 2020 season.  You can see the schedule further below and a short description of each event here.  


Each race will be completely different from the last and sure to be different from ANYTHING else you can race in this part of the country.


The Sprint Across Enemy Lines is going to consist of two individually scored days of racing at D-Day Adventure park.  Crazy Option Lines! Killer Grass Track! Epic Location.


Space Grass Sprint, A completely new and virgin riding spot on an active farm. There will be grass track, there will be crazy creek terrain there will be mayhem and good times over 2 individually scored days of racing!


Dirtbike Carnival, We make our only return to a 2019 location for this event.  There will be MX, There will be woods, There will be some grass track. And most importantly, there will be EPIC FUN.  We will be setting up "rides" around the property that you MUST ride to get scored for the race. Circle Rut, Slalom Drag Race, Barrel Race, Slow Race, Balance Beam ETC!  This is a chance for everyone to have some fun in front of a crowd, the spectators to really get involved with choosing riders who did the best at each "ride" or had the best costumes, or rode the sweetest wheelie they've ever seen.  Oh and there's also a race going on that pays event points and trophies.


We hope you're ready for the season finale on December 6th.  The IronMan 100.  Not everyone who enters will finish this race, but if you complete a lap, you'll be scored.  There will be "Expert Only" splits for super GNAR but really Scipio is brutal enough all on its own for this event to be considered extreme.  25ish miles per lap, do 4 laps and don't get passed by the overall race leader to have a chance at getting all 4 laps done.


Four weekends of racing, 6 points paying events.  Each racer is allowed 1 drop and 1 work bonus of 20 points (you can work an event or you can help cut trail and lay out a race if your schedule doesn't allow being at a particular event).  We updated the rulebook, so check that out, there's a link near the bottom of the website. We changed some classes, added pro payback and other items.   No permanent numbers this year, and of course, no membership fee's to get points.  


In 2019, we didn't have any special kids classes or events.  That was 90% due to lack of manpower.  We wouldn't mind having the kids at the races, but we are only 2 people and get stretched really thin even with the support of the small army that help make these races possible.  So,  If you want to get your hands dirty with us and take on some sort of kids races, or setting up and supervising a "kids zone" small course, we want to talk to you.  The pay sucks and sometimes you get yelled at, but generally people are pretty appreciative of someone putting in all the hours so that they can have a place to ride and race.


So, there you have it, that is what's to come in 2020 in a nutshell.  We're here to race and have a good time, we hope you are too!

What is OkieSprint?

A Social Racing Experiment

We aim to bring different ideas to motorcycle racing in Oklahoma to make things fun, interesting and exciting for off-road motorcycle enthusiasts.

Racing, but with with Clocks!

Sprint Enduro Racing is exactly what it sounds like;  Riding as fast as you can on short, off-road courses, against the clock.


Check out our YouTube Play List to get a feel for the courses and format.

Spectator Friendly!

Short, fast courses that let you hang it all out!  Best Part - Everyone gets to see it all go down because the tests are close to camp and riders will have the opportunity to return to the pits between each test. This allows you to bench race with your buddies and family between tests.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Do Sprint Enduros Work?

 Riders are sent into tests individually at 15 second increments.  There are two tests set up and riders are grouped by faster or not so fast groups and put onto separate courses for each half of the day, switching at mid race time. 

Check out our YouTube Play List for an idea of the races

What class should I ride in?

Enter an equivalent class to any series you currently ride in.  If you've never raced before, we suggest entering the C or C-Senior (+40 years old) class.  You can always enter a more competitive class later.  All Courses should be doable on an 85cc bike.

Is there transfer trail between Sprint Enduro tests?

No!  We start and end each test loop right at the pits.  You can ride your dirt bike back to your truck between tests! 

Do I need to "keep time"?

No!  The tests open at approximately 11am and you have ample time to complete your required laps.

How long is the race?

With Tests lasting 6-15 minutes each, expect approximately  1+ hour to 1.5 hours of riding as fast as possible during the race day.  


Racing Starts at 11am and trophies should be handed out by 4pm.

Is it fun for non racers?

Absolutely! Sprint Racing gives spectators a lot of time watch the racing up close and interact with riders in the pits. We also appreciate and encourage help with our races.  From building the courses, handling sign up, staging riders and keeping the course clear and well marked on race day there is a lot do.
