Riders take on our 1.5 miles of asphalt racetrack and 9 miles of dirt trails at the Hallett Motor Racing Circuit. The asphalt section has a 10-turn road race course with over 80 feet of elevation changes. This is the same course that features CMRA motorcycle road racing and SCCA car racing with clocked racers going up to 100 MPH. Our local Porsche™, Shelby™, and Viper™ clubs also use our tracks for racing and car shows. Our racetrack facilities include indoor restrooms, an indoor restaurant where you can sit down or take out from the counter, and asphalt roads that run through pits and running water.
Oklahoma Gold Rush is open to road racers, flat trackers, motocross racers, and cross-country racers. We are also encouraging you to bring your whole family to the event. Get to see the whole family race in the same event with our parent-child team competition. We also offer classes for the whole family and all levels of riders. Camping is available with a $20 gate admission. Professional pictures are also available in our event. Be part of our great community!
OK Gold Rush started in 1995 at Hallett Motor Racing Circuit with 90 motorcycle riders and about 150 spectators. Within a couple of years, ATVs were added to the event. The event gained momentum, attracting 300 riders and about 500 spectators. In 2009, UTV (side by sides) classes were added. We saw 788 racers and over 2,000 spectators attend the event in 2010. The following year, we had over 800 riders and about 3,000 spectators.
OK Gold Rush is patterned after the Elsinore Grand Prix, the Catalina Island Grand Prix (a race off the coast of California in the late '40s and '50s), the Tecate Grand Prix in Mexico, and the San Diego Grand Prix. Each of these events helped to shape the Oklahoma Gold Rush into the event it is today. In 2005, we bought 40 acres next to Hallett Motor Racing Circuit for an additional six to seven miles of dirt trails. In 2007, we bought an additional 180 acres, so now we average around nine miles of dirt trails.
