From John Rittenoure

TULSA, OK (January 17, 2024) – New ownership and a 24 race schedule is on tap for AmeriFlex Hose & Accessories Oil Capital Racing Series fans and competitors in 2024.

Tim Kent, who served as Race Director in 2023, will continue in that role for 2024 but will also now be the owner after purchasing the series from Caney Valley Speedway promoter Kerry Gorby.

Eleven tracks in three states will host OCRS events in 2024.

Creek County Speedway heads the list of events with five. Red Dirt Raceway will host four shows with Lawton Speedway, Thunderbird Speedway, Salina Highbanks Speedway, Caney Valley Speedway and Lake Ozark Speedway having two races each. Enid Speedway, Tulsa Speedway, Arrowhead Speedway and a first time visit to Beaver County Raceway round out the schedule.

The season opens on March 1 with the 7th annual Spring Nationals at Red Dirt Raceway and continues for a second night on March 2. On June 21 Red Dirt will hold the Mike Peters Freedom 40 Classic, and will host the 9th annual Pat Suchy Classic on October 12.

After a successful visit last season, OCRS will travel to Lake Ozark Speedway in Eldon, Missouri on May 25-26 for two days of racing with POWRi.

AmeriFlex Challenge 9 will return to Salina Highbanks Speedway on September 28.
