Moto Festival in Moto Paradise: The Rumble at Oak Ridge

August 28-30 – Oak Ridge MX – Garwin, IA

Located in the heart of America sits the nation’s most picturesque motocross racing venue where the quiet rolling hills on Iowa’s countryside will thunder to life with a motorcycle festival like no-one has seen before… Grins from ear to ear will be filled with loamy topsoil all weekend long by 2 wheeled racers from around the globe at the 1st Annual Rumble at Oak Ridge MX.

Far from your average MX race, The Rumble is a festival built to celebrate grassroots MX racing featuring The Midwest Dealer Challenge, Meadow Mayhem Vintage MX racing; pull start mini bikes, Race Tech Pit Bike Straight Rhythm, and the Shift MX Holeshot Challenge…. And that’s all only going on around a practice day and 2 full days of motocross racing on a national level track. Throw in a vendor row lineup of all your favorite brands and local dealers, live music, outdoor games, a beer tent, and the most lucrative awards in amateur moto and you have a can’t miss weekend with your moto family!

Festivities include:

$6000 weekend pro purse

Meadow Mayhem Vintage MX Racing

Race Tech Pit Bike Straight Rhythm

Shift MX Holeshot Challenge

Midwest Dealer Challenge

Pull Start Mini Bike Racing

Live Music

Bags, beer pong, and endless laughs

Friday Practice day followed by two separate race days, including an AMA Pro-Am on Sunday.

It’s easy to go fast in a straight line…or so they say! It’s like drag racing, but only cooler because it’s on dirt with a starting gate! Line ‘em up and let’s find out who is the real holeshot king. Only the fast will last in this best of three holeshot drag race bracket. By the way, we love old school at the ShiftMX Holeshot Challenge, so leave your fancy starting devices at home and show us what you really have! If you’re not scared, join us at The Rumble.

It’s tough to find more tasteful fun than pit bikes and straight rhythm head to head bracket racing; especially when you combine the two. Race Tech has decided to do just that and then throw some extra hot sauce on it to really heat things up… How? Two long lanes of purpose-built pit bike straight rhythm connected by two giant bowl turns that are sure to spice things up… Not enough excitement in that for you? Brackets have also been mega-sized to 3 and 4 riders racing at a time in these two lap, winner takes all grudge matches.

True vintage racing on a purpose built GRASS TRACK on Vintage Bikes through the rolling hills of Oak Ridge MX. Evolution, Vintage, and Post Vintage classes and of course a Plus 50 class available!

The top dealers from across the Midwest will be doing battle to take home The Midwest Dealer Challenge trophy and ultimate bragging rights!
