THE END IS NEAR
The end of 2005 is drawing near and things are starting to heat up. As the end of the year is tomorrow we here at the track want to slow down and wish everyone a safe and fun NEW YEAR. In 2005 we had a lot of ups and downs both on the track and off. We want to say THANKS again to all those who made it possible for Sooner Pearl to continue operating after the crippling theft back in October. If not for the GOOD HEARTS of those who pitched in we would not have been able to start another year of racing. It is always hard to cancel a race or two a we did in October. Thanks to some help from our great friends and the BMX community. We are all thankful for their help. Thanks to them we will kick off our 19th season here at Sooner Pearl Sunday. THANK YOU.

TRACK WORK EVENING
with all the attention which has been given to the buildings and signage around the track it was time to devote some energy to the track. With the help of a couple people we were able to work on the track for 4 hours this evening. Thanks goes out to Matt Finch for bringing his 4 wheeler to drag the track and make things even better than they were. The track was not by any means in bad shape as it was it was more to freshen things for our 2006 season opener on Sunday.

COVER-UP COMPLETE
All the graffiti is once again gone on the track as of yesterday and we have another coat of nice white paint covering the artistic expressions of the little vandals. My how the new coat of paint makes things look so much better and is our way to express our artistic 'cover-up'. Now thanks (again) to Basco Screenprinting we also have a couple new signs at the track which most everyone will notice when they come to the track to race.

Our weather forecast for the beginning of the 2006 Season looks as if we will be able to race on January 1st. The forecast is for mostly clear skies and a high around 66 well above our 40 threshold to call off races.

WALK A MILE
Today it was like sunny California here, what a great day. Winter must have taken a right turn today as it was 73 with clear skies and almost no wind there was no way this was the day after Christmas. All the great weather and we had riders on the track today too. Our rain which was forecast for tomorrow is now gone and we will be riding good weather till next week. We will be out working on the track tomorrow and things will be just fine for our January 1st race. Oh ya almost forgot we tested our newly acquired wireless microphone unit today and we could almost 'walk a mile' and still be able to talk on that thing it is great. NO MORE break up of our PA system at races NOW.

Our weather forecast for the beginning of the 2006 Season looks as if we will be able to race on January 1st. The forecast is for mostly clear skies and a high around 58 well above our 40 threshold to call off races.

MERRY CHRISTMAS
It was just beautiful today with mostly clear skies and a high of 60. Not at all the typical Christmas Day by any means as the children would like a White Christmas but the adults liked the weather very much. We had a few riders out on the track today and things looked pretty well as far as the track went. No muddy places although we did have a motorcycle rider on the track Friday but there was only minor damage and this will be fixed this coming week as we plan to be working several days this week preparing for our season opener on January 1st.

Our weather forecast for the beginning of the 2006 Season looks as if we will be able to race on January 1st.

THE DAY BEFORE CHRISTMAS
No white Christmas for us this year. It was about 58 today and we made it all day without any moisture. The track is drying out again and is still in great shape for riding except for the damp places. Most of the track was dry enough to ride in places today but we still would like it to dry more before we let riders out to ride. It will be dry enough tomorrow and we are sure there will be riders out trying out their new bikes tomorrow.

Our weather forecast for the beginning of the 2006 Season looks as if we will be able to race on January 1st. The forecast is for some clouds and a high around 53 which is above our 40 threshold to call off races. We will keep up with the forecast and let you know when it changes (as it will) and what changes are made.

WARM AND DAMP
It was nice and warm again today but we did have a few times of very light mist during the day. With the mist the track was not able to dry out as much as we would have liked but it still looks great.

Currently our weather forecast for the beginning of the 2006 Season looks as if we will be able to race on January 1st. The forecast is for clear skies and a high around 51 which is above our 40 threshold to call off races. We will keep up with the forecast and let you know when it changes (as it will) and what changes are made.

WARM AND DRY
What a nice day we had today with sunny skies and warm temps. It has been very nice for a Winter day in December, WOW. The track is damp but will be drying out today and is still in good condition. We can't believe it has been able to last this long without riders riding in the mud.

Currently our weather forecast for the beginning of the 2006 Season looks as if we will be able to race on January 1st. The forecast is for clear skies and a high around 47 which is above our 40 threshold to call off races.

WARM WEATHER ON THE WAY
Although Mother Nature has pushed Winter onto our doorstep today was much more like early Spring than Winter. The sky has cleared and the somewhat cold temps have given way to much above freezing temps. It was a nice day for a change today. We have warm weather in the forecast for till at least mid week next week. Looks as if we won't have a White Christmas this year.

COLD, RAIN, SNOW
Again today we had overcast skies and a mix of percipitation most of the morning and it was a tad bit warmer today than the last few days. It is still wet outside but the track has weathered this moisture very well. Not only has the track taken the moisture well for some reason we have not had riders riding in the muddy conditions which is a nice departure from seeing bike tire ruts in the track after the track has become muddy.

WIRELESS MICROPHONE UNIT
The track has now purchased a replacement Wireless Microphone unit to replace the unit stolen back in October. We are eagerly awaiting the arrival of the unit for testing at the track. We have decided not to buy the same type unit as we had before (Radio Shack) and have opted to purchase a much better brand in hopes this would solve our problem of signal breakup when standing a various locations around the track. We did however take a chance and buy a used unit at about half price of the same unit bought new. We will post the outcome of our tests next week as we have scheduled a test for Monday evening after Christmas.

MORE VANDALISM
Once again one or two of our local gangs have seen fit to come to the track to 'tag' things. We had painted over the last 'tagging' just a couple weeks ago and we guess this was a 'fresh canvas' for the little brats. We say little as the paintings are not much above 4 feet off the ground so it is apparent these brats are short or young. This time they saw fit to use some very graphic language as well. We have contacted the OKC Gang Squad about this vandalism.

COLD, RAIN, SNOW
It is winter now and Mother Nature is showing off today. Just cold enough to have rain, snow and wind to keep things mixed all day. We need the moisture and it is coming down slowly so the track will not have heat cracks for a few days. We have rain and snow in the forecast till Tuesday so we may get a good soaking.

NICE WEATHER TODAY
Winter is upon us and the weather has been kind so far. It is a little cool and we are still under a FIRE ALERT over most of the state.

DECEMBER 3-4 RACES
We have changed our schedule the last 2 weeks of this season to allow local riders a couple more chances to add points before the end of this season. Now it seems we may be seeing Mother Nature making changes to our schedule. Our Saturday and Sunday races for this weekend may be more than she wants as the weather forecast has changed and races Sunday will be cool but we have full intentions to race Sunday. Our forecast for Sunday is for cooler afternoon temps in the mid 40's, just above our 40 threshold. So if you are planning to race Sunday be sure to bring something warm. We will get some firewood for a good ole barrel fire and we will see you there. You can see our NEW Shur-Start in action......

MAINS HAVE RUN
The racing is over and the winners have been given their awards. The drivers are packing up and readying for the drive home. It all came down to the MAINS today and they were good to say the least. We want to be the first to say 'JOB WELL DONE' to all riders who came to compete. The riders who were good enough to come home with an award have bragging rights for now and they deserve it! Congrates to all and have a safe trip home.

Now that things have started to wind down I (Richard Axtell) want to apologize for not posting more on the races this weekend. I had a little battle with the track and it won on Thursday during practice. Due to this I came home Thursday evening to rest my old bones. As I sat here Thursday evening and cruised the net it became clear that many others had done a great job of covering the build up to races and the races. We will have a page on the GRANDS on the site soon but this year it will not include our pictures and commentary as in the last few years. Not to say we did any better than others but it is always a lot of work and fun covering the GREATEST BMX RACE on EARTH and we look forward to '06. I personally want to invite everyone to the Sooner National, February 3-5 2006 at the Lazy 'E' arena in Guthrie Oklahoma. Who knows maybe you can get a look at this 'ole Track Operator out on the track a racin'..........
I also want to say THANK YOU to everyone who spent time on our site this year and we hope you come back soon to see our site and to race in the Great State of Oklahoma, home to some of the best BMXers in the nation! Have a great Christmas holiday, New Years and we look forward to seeing you here racing in 2006, may it be the best year ever for us all!

ONE DAY BEFORE IT STARTS
The time has grown short and the riders are preparing for the GRANDS in Tulsa. The track is built and ready for riders. The weather has stayed nice but it looks as if we may have some rain on the weekend. All in all the weather should not be a factor. We have been told the track is awesome and as said before there will be NO WET SPOTS this year!

If you don't know there are pictures of the track now on the web. ABA pics are from the ABA BMX site and also pics from BMXNews.com which can be viewed from the links below.

WEATHER?
The days are winding down and a few are already on the road, some are packing, some are ready to pack and others are getting ready for a short drive. Want to know what the weather will be like in Tulsa for GRANDS? HERE is a link to the National Weather Services 7 day forecast for Tulsa. Just remember this is OKLAHOMA and the weather does change in five minutes so pack accordingly.

It has arrived! A brand new Shur-Start was delivered today to Oklahoma City and we will be playing with it this week. Ready, Set, GO, well not quite but you will know what the new unit is all about next week after we put it to the test the next few days. We will have a report and info on this NEW piece of equipment at Sooner Pearl BMX Raceway.

IN THE BEGINNING
In the beginning there was but a pile of dirt. Then the master builders set out to build THE TRACK of the year. What will it be like this year? Will it be wet and mushy again this year? Not this year boys and girls as it seems this year the rain maker has looked over Oklahoma for the last few weeks. This year we will have a dry track. Now what will THE TRACK look like?

What is it about this year that has been so strange. It seems that this year has been a bad year for Sooner Pearl, but it has been great. We had a lawn mower stolen this year and someone donated this awesome mower. We call it Killa', it is like the Energizer bunny, it don't know when to stop. Our computer and many other items were stolen and now we have this cool computer, the makings for an awesome PA system and a brand NEW Shur-Start is on the way to our track. Things have been bad and getting much better. With that in mind let us all take this GRANDS to make sure we all give THANKS for all the things we have.

NO RACE TODAY
We will not have a RACE today, as we have been telling people our track lights have again been vandalized and due to this we are not able to light the track enough to safely ride after dark. We have been planning to get them fixed but other things have delayed this project.

COOL BUT DRY
The weather has been great for November and we have not had any rain for several days now. The track is dry, smooth and ready to ride on, it has been in great shape for a couple weeks now. Day riding is great but our light problem has been delaying us from after dark events, we hope to have the lights fixed shortly.

WEEKEND EVENTS ONLY
As this year has passed we have been able to have events after dark most of the year. Now it seems we will have to cancel our after dark events until we are able to get our lights repaired and be able to light the track for safe riding. If you know anyone who has a bucket truck or a lift who would like to donate some time of use to the track please let us know on the track phone. We will be unable to have after dark events till the lights are repaired.

The window which was used to enter the tower during our latest burglary has been focus of our work for a couple days now.

NORTH IDAHO/CHERRY HILL BMX
Now is seems that this track has a BIG HEART and was able to donate a very OLD but functioning Shur-Start to us so we MAY BEGIN having Practice and Race again. We want to thank Randy Cain the North Idaho BMX, Track Operator and their members for their great donation. We want to also wish them GOOD LUCK with their new BMX track, Cherry Hill BMX. Seems they closed North Idaho BMX and are luck enough to have a NEW track, Cherry Hill BMX to move to, this is part of the reason they were able to donate the Shur-Start to Sooner Pearl.

THANKS AGAIN to Randy Cain and all at North Idaho/Cherry Hill BMX.


Mo-Bros Rod and Customs
These guys are great car people and they know what to do. If you have a car or truck which needs customizing or are looking to build a Street Rod then you need to talk to them first! Mo-Bros has volunteered to be the shipping location for Sooner Pearl and we have had some items shipped there in the last few days which will help Sooner Pearl get back on its feet. Visit them at mo-bros.com on the web or call 405-525-3184 for information.

THANKS AGAIN to Gerald, Gary, Micah and their great crew.


BASCO Screenprinting & Signs
What can we say about BASCO? They have been nice enough to donate several things to help our track get back on its feet and volunteer to help work on the track to help prepare it for our return to racing. They have also made some NEW SIGNS for the track (some which have already been stolen) and have told us we will be able to get replacements for the stolen signs. BASCO has also screenprinted shirts and other items along with started their venture into trophy building, all to help Sooner Pearl BMX. You can contact BASCO at 405-942-7885 for more information.

Since the Sure-Start was stolen this week and we did not have a backup unit we will most likely not race Sunday. We are trying to locate another Sure-Start for the gate. WE NEED RIDERS AND PARENTS TO COME TO OUR TRACK TO HELP ON THE TRACK, RACE AND PRACTICE. Without riders and parents we have NO MONEY to complete repairs and continue to operate the track.

REPAIR THE TOWER

NO RACE TODAY / PERSONAL NOTE
We will not RACE today. Sometime between 5:30pm Wednesday evening and 3:45pm Thursday we had a break-in and burglary of our tower building. The tower has been very damaged and will need major repairs. Most everything inside the tower was stolen including our Sure-Start, computer and all concession items. Much more was taken but we will not list the items here.

PERSONAL NOTE...........
As Track Operator I (Richard Axtell) have been in contact with the Oklahoma City Police Dept. to report our break-in and burglary. As has been in the past our call to the Police Dept. was a LOW PRIORITY call and it took about 1 hour for the Police to respond to our call for help. After filling out a report and an inspection of the area by the Police nearly 2 hours had passed. Due to the time and circumstances I decided to remain at the track till dark to (hopefully) stop the return of the burglar to finish cleaning out what was not already stolen. Since I stayed at the track I was unable to update the phone message (our phone was stolen) and the web site to reflect that we would NOT RACE today.
I want to apologize for not making the changes to the phone message and web site today.

MORE WORK TODAY
A couple of us were out working around the track today and things are getting mowed down to the ground, relax only the grass was mowed down. We have had some problems with keeping the grass mowed around the track since the track mower and weedeater was stolen a couple weeks ago. Now it is not a problem any more. With the donation of a better mower, one that is mowing down our 5 foot tall Johnson grass and a better weedeater that is those green things are slowly disappearing around the track now. It is much work but it sure looks good when it gets done and that is our mission, making the track a better place for all.

OK, it is time for a little help here at the track. It seems we did get some rain Sunday night at the track and there was several places on the track which were muddy. Now add a motorcycle (MX) with the mud and we have a big mess on the track. It is all gone now but the damage had already been done. If you find people riding motorcycles on the track just get a tag number and call the POLICE.

WORK, WORK, WORK
It was another hot day today and we made it without rain maybe the rain is giving us a break for a while. The track is looking good now but as always it could still use some work. We have been working hard to get the track back to a smooth condition, without a 4 wheeler and volunteers is just takes some time to get it back in shape.
We have had a few more donations this week and things will look a little more freshly painted in the near future along with some repairs which are needed to the starting hill tower and the main tower. Since we have had some local graffiti artists working on tagging the track we will be out covering up our 'artwork' soon.

MORE VANDALISM
Once again we have had people who are trying to break in at the track. Funny since we have nothing worth stealing there but that don't stop the attempts.

Some grass was mowed and things are looking much better both on the track and off.

It looks as if we will have some rain this week and it could help us out by getting the track a little damp so we may work on some areas which need a little attention.


Regular race schedule
Sunday Races Sign ups 1-2pm
Tuesday Races Sign ups 6-7pm (1st Tuesday of each month)
Tuesday Practice 6:30-8:30pm

WAIT A MINUTE
The HEAT is back and it is HOT. If you come to the track to ride it is a VERY good idea to bring a large amount of fluids to keep riders hydrated as the weather will wring it out in a hurry. So if you come out during times we don't have the tower open please think about fluids before you leave the house.

NO RACE YESTERDAY
We did not race last night as we did not have enough riders come out to race. It was warm yesterday but the Track Operator and a handful of riders did show up and had a good Practice session. We do need riders to come out to race, even in the heat. As you know we can't pick the weather and racing does happen when it is hot.

MUCH MORE WORK
The track is in good shape but is still in need of much more work. The rain has stayed away for several days now and we have had time to get much work done. As it looks we will be free of rain for a few more days and will have more time to work. We could use your help working. The time is getting near for our Race for Life and State Championship Qualifier. Volunteers will be needed to help with these races.

NO RACE YESTERDAY
With only a handful of riders who came out to race last night we cancelled our race Thursday evening. Without riders and parents coming to track events to help support the track there will have to be some drastic changes soon.

RACE TODAY
The track will be open and ready to race today. Of course we will need riders to come to the track to race. Racing will depend on the riders and the number of riders who show to race. Many people work hard to keep this track open, smooth and ready to use but it takes riders and parents coming to Race and Practice to help support the track and to keep it operating.
We will see you at the track............

THANK YOU
We want to say THANK YOU to all those who came to race at the Redline Cup Qualifier on July 4th. Most don't know but we had rain very early on the day of this race and it took many people to prepare the track before the race could go on. Not everyone (even at the race) knows just how much work was done to get this race off and running but the Management of Sooner Pearl wants to say a big THANK YOU to those who came to race and to those who cared even more to give a helping hand to work on the track.
