Oak Lake Dirt Drag – May 5th & 6th
Manitoba Dirt Riders presents the opening round of the 2018 Manitoba Cup in Oak Lake, kicking off our 10th season. We are proud to have Chudd’s Powersports as our series sponsor and this race is sponsored by Capitol Motosports. Check them out atwww.chuddspowersports.com & www.capitolmotosports.com . Support these shops, they support us!
The Oak Lake Dirt Drag is a double-header weekend. Saturday is a fun race with no series points awarded and the 2 hour afternoon race is reduced to 1 hour. All race fees are half price!
We will be continuing with our community meals so please join us Saturday evening for supper. MDR provides the main meal and non-alcoholic beverages. All you need to do is bring a side dish, salad or dessert to supplement the meal.
The Blaines will have their canteen open on both Saturday and Sunday. Be sure to stop by and try their amazing food.
Camping is available starting Friday night and finishing preparations will be taking place Friday afternoon/evening and Saturday morning if you are able to come out early and lend a hand.
The race facility is located 3 miles east of the town of Oak Lake, just 2 miles south of the trans Canada Highway #1.
Coming from Winnipeg on the trans Canada #1 Highway, continue west 5 miles past PTH 21 (the turn off to Griswold) until you hit mile road 137W. In the daylight you will see the billboard sign for the town of Oak Lake. Turn South on Mile road 137W. Go 2 miles south on 137W. As soon as you cross the second set of railway tracks turn left into the farmer’s field immediately on the south side of the second railway track. The black MDR race trailer is there along with numerous campers.
