When we first took to this track at ORP in 2011, we didn't know what to expect - out in the boonies, eastern Oregon, this fairly new ribbon of pavement. What we found was an absolute gem! So much so that we have been there 3 times now. It's truly an amazing experience to ride there. So: A summer weekend at Oregon Raceway Park is on the schedule for 2014. August 9 & 10 are the dates, mark it! Even better, if you sign up for both days and deposit byApril 1, you will save $100 per day! So at just $550, two days at ORP with Reg Pridmore, Craig Hansen, Ted Holman and the rest of the crew costs less than it did last year - but ya gotta get signed up now! See ya in August at ORP! Go for a ride at ORP with Reg ...Click here.
