    The original one preferably. N beef up the finish like it used to be.. lol..

    Buy pit bikes. Then you can police them when they're pit riding.

    The toolbox was sweet.

    Big bikes.

    Cash.

    Giant fuel card.

    Free gate fee + 1 class for a year in OMA for rider and mom and dad or 1 "mechanic".

    Free week at a southern practice facility.

    Supercross VIP tickets.

    All inclusive vacation for 2 to Riviera Maya.

    I’m getting the 1 year free thing on FB as well, I’ve heard it every year since we’ve been open. 1 serious question, how does the OMA reimburse each and every track that the winner decides to race at? Let’s assume this racer hits up 20 races. So is the OMA writing a weekly check to different tracks? My point, I think it would be much easier for us to giveaway a $500 gift card. Use the cash you save from the gift card and use it to race, then tell yourself you raced for free. Mucho easier. I will bet you $50 American Dollars that RO/BS or the dirty south uses this idea at there 2018 banquet, calling it now.

    Ok took it wrong, as we are not trying to mimic what you have accomplished just trying to improve southern Ohio. Giving riders options and to allow them to have a voice. This is why we are going to try the timed motos for one event next year.

    Jeremy, get each track on board. No reimbursement from or for anyone. Get a gold oma card with picture ID. Make it a known deal to each promoter. Said promoter would relay info to gate people and sign up girls. This is my first thought to come to mind. Might not be perfect but you get the idea. A $500 gift card would probably go to something other than racing.

    District 12 always used to buy my membership the next year. Maybe for winning a super series or something. Or placing top 3 etc? Try that. Fork out a membership idea. I like it.

    We can make that happen. No quad guys though. They would IP ban everyone.

    Well that was what I meant, lol, the money not coming from your pocket for parts, which is covered by the card, is now for free entries. Nevermind, its not the same mentally. We will kick it around, now something that is possible is free memberships for Overall Champions, that's on the table.

    One thing I would do with the free membership for a year or the $500 gift card is take a picture of your winner or winners of all prizes and post that at each and every track so that you create a reminder of the great prizes that the riders won at the OMA awards banquet. "Create some hype." Maybe make up a banner (w/pics of the winners) that can be hung at the signup building or on the fence at every OMA track but put it out there so people can see what some of their funds are going towards. Plus if you put it out there on a banner it stays fresh in peoples minds for the whole season. Not to mention everyone loves to win prizes and if it's at every track it stays fresh in their minds.

    I find it hard to beat Motion Pro tools. Most people including myself will grab craftsman to jet the job done.
    So a box full of Motion Pro Tools or a $500 Motion Pro gift card.
