MORE RAIN?
The rain did come today but it was very light rain and we actually did get to see the sun for a change. What a beautiful sunset we had today. Now for the track, things are not well. The rain has caused a huge amount of damage and it has been to wet to work. There is a lot of washing damage but the drainage has been keeping the track from staying underwater.

MUCH MORE RAIN
The rain came again today and it was heavy several times during the day. Not a pretty site to see roads closed and turning into rivers! Things are not looking good and they are forecasting even more heavy rain for at least one more day. In Oklahoma City it is starting to look like monsoon season and the rain keeps coming down.

MUCH RAIN, NO PRACTICE
We will cancel Practice tonight due to rain. The official National Weather Service information shows .91 inches of rain in the last 24 hours. Many areas in the metro area had much more and 1/3 of the state is under a Flash Flood Warning. It looks like we may have a somewhat drier day tomorrow but our forecast is for more rain till next week. Things are not looking good for racing this coming weekend already.

NO END IN SIGHT
More clouds and rain was in store for today. Most of the rain stayed away until the evening. Things are not going to dry out for days and we have more rain in the forecast. Most of the week is to be wet with several inches of rain to fall this week. The track is now in bad shape and more rain will not make things any better. We would like to mow and work on the track but it has been to wet.

NO RACE TODAY
We will cancel our race again today. This was not a good weekend for Sooner Pearl. We had to cancel our WORK DAY yesterday, why you may ask. Seems the power was off most of the day Saturday while the crews worked on the power lines along Western Ave. for the highway relocation. About 5pm the power was turned back on, just a few minutes before thunderstorms rolled across the city.

Sooner Pearl BMX is starting a CAN DRIVE. Open to all District OK01 riders. Bring in 10 pounds of aluminum cans and get a FREE RIBBON race, 20 pounds gets a TROPHY or SAVER STAMP race. Help us clean up the environment and get races and District Points for your time and work!

NO RAIN TODAY, SO FAR....
It has been partly cloudy today with no rain to speak of so far. There is a line of storms south and south east of town but it looks like it will slide by town and we may have a day off. Well not a day off really since we have a huge amount of work to be done at the track. We may have a WORK DAY tomorrow if we don't get rain tonight, we will change this message later today or early in the morning if we will be out working Saturday. We could use your help, with your help we may be able to race Sunday.

MODERATE RAIN TODAY
It started out like many days these last few weeks. Cloudy in the morning and it looked like rain, then it hit us again. We get about 3/4 inch of rain in a few minutes today. In the last 36 hours we have had just a little under 2 inches and it looks like we have more on the way.

06-20-2007
SHOWERS TODAY
More cloudy skies and we had some light showers during the afternoon but not any heavy rain like just south of here. This year has been a very wet year by all means and it looks like we will have rain around for a few more days as well. The track is getting real rough and will take a lot of work to make it smooth enough to ride, racing is out of the question.

SOME RAIN TODAY
We had another day of overcast skies and then the rain came later in the day. At least it was not hard or heavy rain and it did not rain long. We will not work on the track tonight and it looks like we may not be out to work Tuesday evening.

NO RACE TODAY
Again we started the day with overcast skies and rain looming. At noon we have a line of heavy rain heading from the south into town. We will cancel our race today. If it is not raining Monday evening we may be out to work on the track (after 6pm) for our Tuesday Practice session.

NO WORK TODAY
The day started out cloudy and looking like rain but that did not last long after noon when it cleared up and things warmed up into the lower 80's. We did not work on the track today and we did have a very light shower which moved across town about 11am this morning but not enough rain to do much but settle down the dust and cool it off for a while.

06-15-2007
MORE RAIN
The day started off dry or should we say without rain. We did have a few showers move across town during the day but not anything like what we had yesterday. We did go to the track late this evening and there was still a little water standing in 2 places on the track. The drainage system did a good job of draining the water away. Considering we the amount of rain we have had in the last 2 days things are drained and the track is on it's way to drying out now.

HEAVY RAIN TODAY
The day started with heavy rains early this morning and we had much more to come during the day. Some areas of town have had some flash flooding since everything is soaked and there is now where for the rain to go except into the storm drains. We did get over 1 inch at the track during the day and that has caused major damage to the track surface.

DRY DAY
Even though we had a dry day today we will not be working on the track tonight since the track is just to wet to work on currently.

MEMORIAL DAY
More rain today but only a few fast moving showers. Most of the day was cloudy and we had a sprinkle here and there but for the most part it was dry. The track is mostly dry, the turns are dry. The flat areas are still a damp. We had a few riders out this weekend so some of the track is rough from riding in the mud.

NO RACE TODAY
NO RACE TODAY. The rain started at 2am this morning and at the time of this posting it is still raining. Looking at the local radar we have several more hours of rain still ahead of us. This month is going down in the record books as the wettest May in Oklahoma City since records have been kept. Looking at the headlines on the 'net' or the local papers we are not the only area to get large amounts of rain, there has been flooding in many states this month and several have died from the flooding.

RACING AND WORKING
Another one of those cloudy days and we did get a small amount of rain and misting rain very early this morning at the track. Not enough rain to affect the track. By evening the track was dry enough to ride on again but still not smooth all the way around since we did not work on the track due to the rain. As far as racing Sunday goes that is still in the air. However it is not looking good since we have a huge cluster of storms moving north into the city from central Texas.

RACING THIS WEEKEND?
NO RAIN TODAY. We made it one day without rain but it did not look good at all. All day we had clouds but no rain. That made drying slow today but the track is pretty dry already. It looks like we will be out working tomorrow to get ready to race Sunday. We will see if we get any rain in the morning before we head to work on the track.

MORE RAIN TODAY
We had rain at sun up this morning. Parts of town got heavy rain for a short time and other parts had more. After the heavy rain we did get some very light rain which got a chance to soak in and make the track muddy. Later in the day we went out and looked things over, the track had no water standing on it and most of the rain had drained away. We worked on the last straight and the finish line area. We do have rain in the forecast for the entire weekend so we are not sure about racing this weekend.

WHAT HAPPENED
Things went as planned yesterday and we have a great time at the track. We did get some work done around the track. We did not work on the track as we have rain in the forecast for tomorrow. The track looks good to the second turn and we have worked on the second turn a little as well as the third straight but neither are finished.

PRACTICE TODAY
We will have a FREE PRACTICE tonight from 6-8pm. All ABA riders are welcome to come out. We will be working on the track while you practice. The entire track may not be smooth but we should be able to get it in shape before we leave today. Come on out and have some fun.

MORE CONSTRUCTION
Things are changing fast now that May 18th has past. May 18th was the day all work on the temporary overhead lines were to have been moved on the sides of the track. Well today the crews installed most all the poles and started to string the new lines. This wet weather has caused the crews to work after May 18th. The work will be done in another couple days if we can get a few more rain free days. More construction on the I-40 re-location project will be near as the utilities are the first items which will have to move for the project. Below ground work will begin soon.

Things are not looking good for races this weekend due to the damage from our rains the last couple weeks. We will be out working on the track today after noon.
To all the riders who have come to race this weekend 'GOOD LUCK' and THANK YOU for supporting the BMX tracks in Oklahoma. Without YOU these tracks would not continue to operate!

WORK DAY
Today a few of us will be out working on the track during the day after noon. It is a long way from getting to a point where the track is smooth enough to race on and we have a lot of grass to mow all around.
It was a long time coming and there have been a few who have asked about our State Qualifier race. Our official date (finally) cleared with ABA. Sunday June 10th is the date, Sign ups 10-11:30am. Look for more info on this race soon.

MORE WORK
It was a productive day of work today. The track is looking a little better since getting 6 inches of rain dumped on it in a few days. The grass is now growing faster than ever. Even though it has not rained in a few days the track is still damp just an inch under the surface. It has been fairly cool since we had our last rain. Speaking of rain we have rain in the forecast for tomorrow, a low chance but it is a chance.

NO RAIN?
Hard to believe but we did not have any rain today for a change. It is getting close to the time of each year when we will have no rain for some time. All this rain has helped fill our lakes and get us out of a drought situation. It was nice to see a day we did not get more rain. We have had about 6 inches of rain just this month alone.

A DAY WITHOUT RAIN?
It was almost hard to believe but we had a day without rain! The track is on its way to drying out and we like this kind of weather. The track is in need of much work but we will not be working today. We have decided to take a day to work on other things this weekend. This has been a terrible month as far as weather is concerned. This month Oklahoma has had 14 tornadoes and our total for the year (so far) has been 23.

YES MORE RAIN TODAY
This afternoon the track was on its way to be nice and dry but the rains started again at 3:30. We had a hard rain for about 20 minutes which made things very wet again. We have better weather in the forecast for the weekend (if the forecast is close to right). We did have a much better looking drain situation, since the new drain was installed. It looks like a few of us will be out working this weekend to get the track in shape and to get more mowing done. This rain has put the plants in overdrive and the grass has been growing FAST everyday.

05-10-2007
RAIN TODAY
Well the cup is full now and we could use some nice weather for a change. Even though it has been raining most every day the rain has affected most everything at the track now. Since we put in the new drain most of the rain we have had this week has already gone down the drain. Some nice dry weather would let the track dry and we could get it back in shape for our weekend race on Sunday.

The track has not been dry for many days now and it looks like it will not break for a few more days if you believe the weather forecasters. Now is the time of year when they seem to put rain in every day just to be safe. They have been right to do so this week! All this rain has been good for most everything but the track. We did get a new drain installed last night so we have a better chance of draining the track since back before I have been around Sooner Pearl. As the last shovel full of dirt was put back in the ditch it started to rain!

05-08-2007
AGAIN MORE RAIN TODAY
We will not have Practice tonight due to the rain. The track is in fair shape and will need quite a bit of work before we can race this Sunday. A few of us will be out working on the track after 6pm tonight. We will be trying to mow, weed eat and some will be working on the drainage.

MORE RAIN TODAY
The rain just seemed to keep coming and coming all day. Looks like we have had near 3 inches of rain in the last 24 hours and the forecast has more rain till Friday. The track is wet and we have a lot of water standing all around the track. We did get some mowing done today and we will be out tomorrow working if it is not raining.

MORE RAIN TODAY?
We will cancel our race for today. We do this for safety since we have a very ugly line of storms headed toward the city. It is better to be safe and not chance it. Considering the weather we have had in Oklahoma, Kansas and further north the last few days. With 80+ tornadoes of which more than half came down from the sky in Oklahoma or Kansas. These storms are not something you want to be around without shelter avaliable.

RAIN TODAY?
While we where out working on the track today we did get some very light rain. Just enough to pack the track without having to water forever. It was a nice reminder that Mother Nature can help on some days. The track looks very good and we have a lot of mowing to be done now.

NO RAIN TODAY
Things really dried in a hurry today and by evening most of the track was dry emough we would have to water before we did any work. All this rain has made the grass grow fast, we will have to work hard to keep on top of this stuff if the rain continues to come every few days.

LIGHT RAIN TODAY
We did have some light rain over night at the track but things are already starting to dry out. A couple riders wanted to ride on the wet track so we now have a few places we will have to work on the track to get it back in shape for racing. After the rain the track looked very good.

MORE TRACK WORK
Since we had the train a couple days ago the track has dried nicely and we were out working on it tonight. The only area we did not work on last Sunday was the focus of our attention today. We did have to water the turn before we worked on it as it had already dried out on the surface. Now it is in much better shape and much smoother than it has been for some time.

04-25-2007
NO ACTIVITY TODAY
The rain has put on hold any work on the track today. Most of the track is still to wet to work today so we will not be out to work tonight. The weather is supposed to clear up and warm up in the next couple days then we have rain on the table for Friday. Since the track will be dry if it rains Friday we will be able to race on Sunday. Our track should be in good shape even if we have an inch of rain of Friday.

GREAT DAY
What a GREAT DAY we had at the track yesterday, the weather was very nice. We had a few volunteers out who helped to get a huge part of the track both mowed and all the weeds knocked down. The place looks very different after a good mowing job. We did work on the track some but most of it was to wet to do much so a majority of the work was around the track. THANKS to all our kind volunteers for all their help!

NO RACE
We will cancel our race today due to wet track conditions. We will be out working around the track today, mostly mowing but the track is to wet to ride or race on. We will be out mowing after noon and we will be there till near sundown so we could use your help mowing or working around the track. Your help would make Sooner Pearl a better place for everyone.

FAIR WEATHER TODAY
There has been work at the track most of this week. All the work has been to start mowing the area around the track.

After one day of good weather it looks like we are to have several nice and dry days of weather. We could not have asked for much nicer than today which saw a high in the 80's and some clouds but no rain. Looks like it may be dry until next week, that is a good thing for us.

ROUGH TRACK
All the rain has caused some real damage to the track. We did manage to keep the water off the track but it was close. All we needed was a little more rain and some parts of the track would have been underwater. It looks like it is time for some heavy construction equipment will be needed to get some of our drainage problems under control.

We did have a tiny rain early this morning but for the most part it is over and we have clearing skies and no rain till Monday. We will cancel our WORK DAY for today due to the rain and the fact most everything is still wet from the rain. We have had just a little over 3.5 inches of rain in the last 24 hours so the track, driveway and everything around is a muddy mess.

SOME RAIN TODAY
Very early this morning we had some rain. It sounded loud and rough but it was just a front moving through with very little rain and a lot of noise with high winds for a few minutes. Things hardly got wet and it looks like we will be OK for today as far as the rain goes. Now we have to make through to Sunday races without much more rain.

RAIN IN THE FORECAST
Even though the weather has been nice for the last few days we still have a chance for rain later today and tomorrow along with chances for Saturday and Sunday. We could not ask for better weather this week and we hope that will the case for the weekend. The track is dry and packed now. We will need to sweep and water for racing Sunday but the track looks great now.

ANOTHER NICE WEATHER DAY
Our weather has been just down right great this week. Not to cool and very little wind has made the week a nice one in deed. We hope this is the case for our upcoming weekend. We would like to get racing kicked off here since we have not been able to race yet this year for many reeasons. Most of the canceled races has been due to Mother Nature although we have had our share od equipment problems as well. We hope this will turn around this weekend.

NICE WEATHER THIS WEEK
With all the bad weather we have had so far this year things are very nice this week. Today was a little cloudy but nice and warm with a little wind. Our weather forecast has a chance of rain for Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Only a small chance of rain so we will have to wait to see but the chance is low and maybe Mother Nature will be nice to us this weekend.

HOW THINGS CHANGE
After many things have caused us to cancel races for many weeks it looks like we are going to be able to race on Sunday if the weather permits. It has been a bad year to get things started at Sooner Pearl. Mother Nature has caused us to cancel most every week this year with technical problems causing cancellation of the last 2 weekends. Now we are finally on the road to getting off our first race of the year.

NO RACE TODAY
Bad luck must be working against us, we will have to cancel again today. We were unable to get the track packed for racing today. We are working to get our lights functioning again this week and hope to have the track ready for night practices and racing after March 12th. We are looking for some dirt to repair the track if you know someone who has dirt they want to give us let us know. Use the email link at the bottom of the page if you need to contact us.

SOONERPEARLBMX.COM
What a story we have for this domain name. Seems years ago we purchased this domain as well as okbmx.com for Sooner Pearl BMX Raceway. The original domain is okbmx.com and this is our main domain. The soonerpearlbmx.com domain is a name only and 'points' to the Sooner Pearl portion of okbmx.com. About this time last year we contacted our hosting company to make sure both domains would work for another year as we use a yearly service. For some reason the soonpearlbmx.com name was allowed to expire. Looks as though it has not worked since April of 2006. Now after a few calls and emails we have this corrected. If you wish to enter the Sooner Pearl section of okbmx.com now you can enter using soonerpearlbmx.com.

We hope this has all been corrected now and things will settle down at okbmx.com. There will be some changes in the next few weeks so watch for announcements as we add items to the site.

COOLER WEATHER HAS ARRIVED
Things got a lot cooler today with a strong north wind and a drop of about 30 degrees for our high today. The good thing is we have a forecast of warmer weather for the weekend and the rain just missed us by miles. We were missed by the weather but it hit many places north and east of Oklahoma City real hard. Time will tell what happens but that was a bad weather front moving through here.

It looked like we could get rain in the very early morning but things cleared out just before noon and the day was nice with a moderate wind. We do have a cold snap ahead but the weekend still looks good.
A few of us will be out working on the track Saturday afternoon. Things should look better late in the day. Most of our work will be packing the track as most everything is smooth. Water, pack.....

NICE WEATHER FOR WEEKEND
Now it looks as if we will have decent weather for the weekend. We still have a chance for rain tomorrow. If the wind keeps up we would have to get of a half inch of rain to make us look at the weekend race. The track is still in need of some packing before we race again but we should be able to get things in shape for Sunday.

3 THINGS
1. We are sorry for the canceling of races Sunday. As said yesterday we had a problem with our water well plumbing. Since we could not water the track to pack it we canceled for safety reasons.
2. The well has been repaired.
3. Thanks to all who contacted the track about racing Sunday. We plan to get this started next weekend if Mother Nature is fair and we have good weather. 4. (Just for grins) Keep an eye out because we will have a Rider Clinic in the near future.
More NEWS in the near future...Stay tuned......

NO RACE TODAY
It seems like a broken record, NO RACE TODAY. While working on the track Saturday afternoon we had some mechanical problems and we were not able to finish prepping the track for racing today. We will be out working on our newest problem tomorrow. We hope the weather is better than Saturday as the wind was terrible, it was down right cool about sundown with the wind just cutting through.

We will be out working on the track today after noon. Our plan is to race tomorrow afternoon and get the racing started here for 2007. This morning it looks as though the rain has come and gone for the day. We did get rain late last night and early this morning but very light rain. Mother Nature watered the track for us, THANKS for the HELP!

NICE BUT WINDY
It is now Friday evening. We have had some rain today and now we have more to arrive about midnight. What we have had so far tonight was light rain which would be nice for the track, we wouldn't have to water as much. Now as for working on the track tomorrow it looks like a long night and then we will wait to see how much rain we get later. Some of us will be there come rain or shine, if it is to wet to work on the track we may be working on lights and a couple other things around the track.

MORE SPRING WEATHER
If the wind was a little slower this would have been a great day, it was really nice today. Even though we have had some real nice weather the weekend is starting o look like rain. Now we have rain forecast for the day Saturday and overnight with clearing on Sunday. We will be out to work Saturday if we don't get much rain. It is not looking good.

02-21-2007
NO RAIN TODAY!
So the track is bone dry today and some of it is so dry we are seeing some cracking. When it is cracking it is dry which is something we don't usually this time of the year. That might mean we will have a lot of rain ahead. Daily high temperature doesn't matter much if things are wet and we have the early rainy season at hand. This year is looking like 2 years ago when didn't race much till the middle of April due to wet conditions.

02-20-2007
MUCH BETTER WEATHER
We had much better weather today and things are forcast to get better till next week now, of course that will change at least once before the weekend but that is weather in Oklahoma. It was nice and warm today with some high winds this morning. If it was not nailed down it was blown north a few feet today. The hign winds camled down later in the day so it wasn't that bad in the end.

TRACK NEARLY DRY TODAY, NOW
After a nice day today the track is totally dry. Yesterday the 2nd turn was still very wet since it don't get much sunlight during this time of the year and most everything needed to be packed. We did a bunch of packing 8 days ago so the track was smooth before our last little bout of falling moisture last week.

TOP OF PAGE

02-18-2007
NO RACE TODAY
We will not race today due to wet track conditions. It is just to wet again today for racing and will not dry enough to do much work. Some of us MAY be out at the track later in the day to check on things and see what the track looks like. Since we did much packing last Sunday most of the track is still smooth and we did not have much damage from the moisture this week. Our weather is looking good for next weekend.

TOP OF PAGE

02-17-2007
SOMEWHAT NICE DAY
It was much warmer today but the winds stayed around and will be here again tomorrow. The strong winds did more drying today but still not enough to allow us to race Sunday. It looks like some of us MAY go to the track Sunday to check things out and possibly work on the track but it is still very wet in most places. If we do go to the track it will be later in the day around 3pm.

COLD AGAIN TODAY
Our light snow job was melting today since we bearly made it above freezing but it was melting. We had some hard winds today which made it feel colder and you had to hold on to your hat today. The track did a very little bit of drying today but is still very muddy in most places. It is not looking good for racing this weekend.

TOP OF PAGE

02-15-2007
MORE SNOW TODAY
We had light snow late last night and overnight after the temps moved below freezing yesterday. We may have more today and things are cold today here. With a high temp of 25 we will not have much drying today at the track but we should have clearing skies today and about 45 for a high tomorrow. Since we have had very little moisture things should start drying out after we move above freezing.

LIGHT SNOW TODAY
Its Valentines Day and it will be cold today and colder tomorrow. We have had very light snow flurries intermittently during the daylight hours. With cloudy skies and falling temps it is WINTER again here in Oklahoma keeping our fingers crossed for no moisture this weekend and warmer weather. It looks like we may have warmer temps and no moisture for the week ahead and maybe nice weather for next weekend. This is the longest Sooner Pearl has not raced at the beginning of the year for as long as we can remember.

COLDER TODAY
Rain moved in today and we have no better weather ahead with dropping temps and more Winter weather ahead. After spending most of the day Sunday working on the track for races Sunday all that work was slowly washed away today. With the dropping temps we are forecast to have more snow and/or ice Wednesday and Thursday so things are not looking good for the rest of the week.

02-12-2007
WARMING UP?
After a somewhat nice day yesterday the weather is again going downhill with moderate winds and cooler temps today. Things are not looking good for the week ahead as we have more snow and ice in the forecast for mid week. It is looking better for the weekend ahead with 50's for both Saturday and Sunday but if our weather forecast is even near close it is doubtful we will have enough nice weather for the track to dry again before next weekend.

TOP OF PAGE

02-11-2007
LETS RACE TODAY
It looks as if Mother Nature is going to spare us from below 40 temperatures this afternoon. We will have some wind but we will be above 40 at race time and the track is dry enough to race. We will be working on the track before racing to fix the damage we have had from all the Wintery weather we have had for the last few weeks. We will see you there!

MORE WINTER WEATHER
The clouds stayed around here again today and we had just a little more wind today so it didn't change much from yesterday. It was again just above freezing late in the afternoon but still cold enough to put a damper on most outdoor activities. Our weather forecast still has a Wintery mix for the weekend. Things are not looking good for any racing this weekend but we will wait to see what happens.

02-08-2007
MORE CLOUDY AND COLD
Today was cold with a blanket of clouds all day but no precipitation. The winds were low speed and things are still in the drying mode. The high tempreature was above freezing but just above freezing. With the light winds today it still seemed to be cold enough not to be outside for very long periods. We are supposed to be a little warmer tomorrow and our local forecast still has a Wintery mix coming for the weekend.

02-07-2007
WINTER WEATHER AHEAD
Our weather has started to turn more like Winter today but it was not bad and things are drying out at the track for a change. We have not worked on the track since back before the first of the year. Since then even though we have had very bad weather the track is in good shape today with very little damage from the moisture we have had (which we needed badly). Today the track is dry enough to walk on without damage, if we don't get much moisture before the weekend we have a chance to race.
Today our weather forecast is not looking good for the weekend. With rain/sleet/snow and or ice forecast for tomorrow and again on the weekend. Now this may sound bad but the daytime highs are forecast to be well above freezing. If this is true we will not race this weekend but we can't bank on many races this time of the year anyway.

It was not hard for us to welcome the really nice weather we had today and if you had been here you would have thought it was Springtime in Oklahoma. Along with the nice weather there was still snow and ice left over from the storms we have had in the last few weeks. Now the track is again clear of frozen stuff and is drying nicely.

The end of the National is a moment in time now and there will be many stories to be told by those who attended this great race. It may be hard to top this year when ABA comes rolling in for the 2008 race. Yes there will be another so start making plans to attend next year.

The weather man changed the weather forecast at the least minute for the weekend. Today started out with cold and cloudy skies but ended with clear skies and 44. Not bad for February in Oklahoma. Tomorrow is lined up to be better with a high around 50 and clear skies.
The races started out a little slow this morning but things get moving fast after a few minutes and the racing was hot! With just under 180 motos there was plenty of racing for everyone. Things are looking good for a strong day of racing on Sunday as well. Sooner National track pictures and a video.

The roads are clear and dry, the sky is clear (there is NO SNOW etc. for 200 miles) and it is 20 but the heaters are on at the Lazy 'E' arena! Some say this is the best track they have ever seen even better than the double turn track here last year and YES it has a double turn this year. It is awesome, exciting, BIG and a few other things we won't repete. Things are starting to wind up here and tonight will be the start of a great ABA National race.

The forecast shows clearing skies for Friday thru Sunday but the temperatures are forecast to be COLD, well below freezing for highs and wind chills of -10 for Saturday and Sunday.

We had some decent weather today for Winter with light winds and somewhat warm temps. The sky was clear and we did not have any precip today so the track is drying nicely.

Sooner Pearl will again cancel our race for today due to our weather and the fact the track is not dry from the ice/sleet/snow storm we had 2 weeks ago. Maybe we will dry out soon and the weather will warm enough for us to get to start racing this year.
If you are looking for info on the SOONER NATIONAL please look at the post below dated January 27. There are links to local hotels/motels and a link to the Lazy 'E' Arena. We want to wish everyone who comes to race 'GOOD LUCK' AND BE SAFE. Our weather forecast for the weekend of the National is looking like below freezing temps and a slight chance of snow Friday and Saturday. It may be a good idea to pack a Winter coat, gloves and prepare for cold weather. We will keep an eye on the forecast or you can look at it 7 DAY FORECAST

WOW is all that can be said about today. It was SPRING like weather today with our high at 62, clear skies and very little wind. Most all the ice/sleet/snow has now melted. The track is now clear of all the stuff and is trying to dry, some areas are dry already. Things do not look good for racing this weekend as our weather forecast has below 40 temps and a chance for rain/snow for Saturday and colder on Sunday.

NICE WEATHER TODAY
Mother Nature is going from one extreme to the other this week. Today we had great weather for Winter and tomorrow is likely to be as good if not better than today. The track is drying and almost all the ice/snow/sleet has melted of the track today, if it is nice tomorrow we will have a clear track.
The weather for the weekend is not looking good today. We have a chance of rain Saturday and cold both Saturday and Sunday, we will have to wait to see what happens. The track still has some ice/snow covering but it may be able to dry before the weekend.

WARMER WEATHER
It was much warmer today and the forecast is for better weather till the weekend when things will once again go downhill. Seems like we will not get a race in this January which is most unusual for Oklahoma. It has been many years since Sooner Pearl has not had 1 race in the entire month of January. Much of the track is now clear of the ice/snow/sleet we started getting 2-1/2 weeks ago but we will have to have more warm weather to get it all melted and the track dried enough to race.

BETTER WEATHER
Another day of above freezing weather today and things really getting thawed out now. The roads are good except in the mornings and things are getting back to somewhat normal. The track is still mostly covered with ice/snow. Since we got rain after the layers of sleet and freezing rain the track has not washed much. Since it was in good shape before the bad weather it is still looking nice what has thawed now. If we get more sun and wind it may be dry enough to ride on for the weekend.

NO RACE TODAY
Sooner Pearl will not race today. The track is still covered with ice, sleet and snow from last weekend.
Our weather has changed again and we missed the majority of the bad weather since the air temperature stayed above freezing yesterday. The weather we had been told would roll over was just to the north of town due to the 'warm' temps we are having. Today we are a few degrees above freezing and tomorrow 'ICE STORM 2007' will be gone and we will be left with a very muddy track.


TOP OF PAGE

01-20-2007
MORE BAD WEATHER
At noon the weather was again going downhill fast. Although the temperature is 1 degree above freezing we have been getting freezing rain and sleet since 3am this morning. The roads have not completely frozen over yet but our temperature is going lower and this will not be pretty! It looks like we are getting 'ROUND 2 of ICE STORM 2007'. From looking at the local radar the city is setting on the border between the freezing rain/sleet (south and east of town) and heavy snow (north and west of town).
As it has been in many years before Sooner Pearl will cancel our race for Sunday January 20 due to weather, this time of the year is at best 50/50 for racing due to our weather.

What was started yesterday was back again today with the heavily traveled streets now clearing so they are somewhat safe to drive on. The morning was a danger as the melting from yesterday was refrozen and we had a few accidents from people trying to drive 60+mph on spotty frozen highways. After the temp raised above freezing things got slushy and the hazard was keep the windshield clear from the mess off the roads.
Due to the weather Sooner Pearl will not race this weekend. What a shame as we have the Sooner National in a couple weeks and local riders need to be able to get some track time in before this huge National event.

ABOVE FREEZING
OK things are getting back to a little like normal here. At about 9am we made it above freezing and things started thawing in a hurry. The morning drive to work today through Midwest City was like driving on an old farm road after a light rain. Slick, rutted, pot holes and people who just got stuck in the piles of stuff (sleet, snow and ice) left in intersections and drives to business' everywhere they plowed the streets.
The drive home today was slush, mud, salt, sand and everything else left on the roadway getting splashed on your vehicle and making it hard to keep a windshield clear enough to see to drive. At least it is thawing! The roads were much better if you disregard the messy part.

ICY AGAIN TODAY
We did see a very little thawing today but that was short lived. Most of the streets are now rutted and cover with a slick glaze. The highways are much better but watch out when you exit. Anything off the highway including exit ramps are glazed and very slick. Today we did see some workers out on the Midwest City streets working but they were causing traffic jams since they were loading the mess on trucks and not just pushing it to the side. Oklahoma City streets at least the major streets are much better now but everywhere are those spots which are slick and hazardous.

NO THAWING TODAY!
With no close end to the freezing temps not much has changed today. The Interstate highways are somewhat cleared, if you like one lane each direction. In Midwest City there has been almost no one working to start clearing the streets although there were many working in Oklahoma City and on the highway system. With a total of at least 3 inches and most places in town had twice that there is alot of clearing to do.

CLOSED TODAY
Today was quite a day all around. We had a National Holiday and everything else is covered with ice, sleet and frozen rain. Since it was a holiday many business' were already closed but with the conditions we have here most of the places planning to open today were closed. The streets are in bad shape for driving, most people stayed home today and had good reason to do so.

MORE FREEZING RAIN AND ICE
At 9am the ice once again started to fall. If you don't know by now there will not be any racing at Sooner Pearl today. Things are glazed with ice already, we have about 3/4 inch of ice, sleet and snow already. Now we are getting the second round and we have thunder and lightning in the mix this time as the freezing rain comes down.

MORE ICE AHEAD
It was a day when we never got much above 25 but the precipitation was not coming down today. The major roads started to get cleared off and it is really possible to drive however at very slow speeds. The ICE was not heavy enough here in town to knock down the power lines as we had been warned would happen. Not that bad for the today but we have more on the way qhich is supposed to arrive tomorrow.

ICE
Our wind has died down and changed directions now. The wind is from the north and the ice and freezing rain have been coming down since about 11am this morning. It looks like we will be getting much more even though we have about a quarter inch now (5pm). It is safe to say we will not race this weekend and next weekend is not looking good if you go by the forecast. We may be able to dry out, we will see.

ROUGH RIDE AHEAD
The wind was a little lighter today and it was warm and a nice day for near the middle of January but that is about to change. Already the wind has started to change direction and clouds are moving in from the north. The weather forecast is for the cold weather to arrive here about midnight. After that the moisture will start fall, then it will change to ice. We could get up to 2 inches of ice over the next 3 days.

OK WEATHER
We still have strong winds today but it was almost warm if you could keep your feet on the ground the outside weather was OK. For those wondering about the track it is now dry enough to start cracking now. It is smooth but riding would have been dangerous due to the wind.

YOU MISSED A GREAT DAY
It was a little windy and cool but not bad for January at the track yesterday. We did not have enough riders to race but the track got very much attention most of the day. Things are dry and smooth, much of the track was packed along with some grass removed. Thanks to all our helpers we all had some great fun and helped the track look much better.

COOL AGAIN BUT SUNNY
Well today it was nice weather for a change. We had sunshine and somewhat of a northerly wind but is was cool. The track did get some sun today and is dry enough to ride on. It is still damp under the surface so working on the track is real easy now. A couple of us plan to go out and work tomorrow so we can race Sunday. All looks well for the weather and getting this new year of racing started on Sunday at Sooner Pearl.

NO RAIN
Again today we had a very cloudy day and dense fog most of the day so any drying was out of the question today. Late in the days the sun did make it through the clouds and it was pretty nice at sunset. Friday is supposed to be windy and cool so maybe we will finally get the track dried out for the weekend.

NO RAIN
The sky is overcast but the rain never made it to the ground so it was very light as we had wished for earlier in the week. Still with no sun today there was only minor drying today maybe it will be nice tomorrow. The weekend forecast looks good with highs in the upper 40's or lower 50's both days. Let us cross our fingers!

RAIN AHEAD?
Since we cancelled yesterdays race because of the wet track is seems we got a little sunshine today which finished getting the track dry enough to really ride on but still not dry enough for working or racing. We have more rain in the forecast for Wednesday. We hope it is only very light rain so the track can dry in time to race Sunday, we will have to wait and see.

NO RACE TODAY
We will cancel today due to muddy track conditions. We have a 90% dry track but there are several places the sun will not shine on which we believe will not dry out enough to race today. Sorry folks we were there this morning to drag and pack but with mud it would be in vain.
