I got my first dirt bike when I was 11 years old. I was the kid ripping the cow paths in the pasture behind my house for a couple years and then began racing when I was 13. I realized pretty quick I wasn't going pro. After high school, picked up and moved to Phoenix AZ where I went to MMI as I wanted to be a pro SX/MX Mechanic. After MMI, worked in the industry for a year and the money just wasn't there.. time to get a real job so I moved back to Iowa and im currently working in the Ag industry. I knew I wanted to be around the sport still, it was all I could think about. Oak Ridge MX started as a dream in 2011. With a few hiccups, not giving up and finally gaining a permit to operate we broke ground in July 2013. Oak Ridge MX was not built by 1 person, this place was built by family, friends, complete strangers, and some of the best people ive ever known. Its been a ride for sure and we are excited for what the future has in store for us!
Our goal here at ORMX is to provide a facility that speaks to motocross endeavors, fans and riders. ORMX is nestled in the rolling hills of Tama County, Iowa. This facility accommodates all skill levels and includes a large track for 50cc to 450cc and 2 small tracks for pit bike riding. As of 2017 we do not have electric hookups but generators are allowed as well as overnight camping. Meskwaki Casino and Hotel is conveniently located 3 miles from the track which hosts a large RV park.
