Sooner Pearl BMX Raceway as of December 15th 2007 will be located in
Trosper Park 2559 SE Grand Boulevard in Oklahoma City. Construction of the
new track at Trosper Park is scheduled to begin January 2008.
The Trosper Park location is comparable to our original location on
South Western Avenue (about 15 acres).
Trosper Park is also the location of a former ABA BMX
track which closed back in the mid 80's just prior to the opening of
Sooner Pearl BMX in 1987.
Our relocation (back) to Trosper Park will open a
new chapter in the rich history of ABA BMX in Oklahoma. The 21st year of
operation will prove to be a groundbreaking year in many ways. The move to
Trosper Park was due to the relocation of Interstate 40 in Oklahoma City.
The new highway will be built within feet of the old South Western location.
Since our old facility was located in the path of the new highway we are
being relocated with the help of the Oklahoma City Parks & Recreation
Department, Oklahoma City Riverfront Redevelopment Authority, Coates Field
Service, Oklahoma Department of Transportation.
Originally located in the String of Pearls Parks which are along
the Oklahoma River in Oklahoma City, just south of Interstate I-40.
Sooner Pearl BMX Raceway was opened in 1987 and is the premier
ABA track in Central Oklahoma. In operation continuously since 1987
there have been many local riders which have participated in ABA
sanctioned racing. There are no fees to pay to watch racing or practice
sessions or park at the track making this is a very affordable recreational
ABA BMX racing
ABA BMX is one of the fastest growing sports today, it is very
competitive and everyone gets a chance to participate, there are 'no bench
warmers' here. Riders of all age groups are welcome and races are grouped
