Oklahoma City, OK (June 15, 2017) — Flat track racing returns to Oklahoma City on June 17th during Father’s Day weekend. OKC Mile will not only feature the race but many other family activities as well, including a FanZone sponsored by Chickasaw Country.
The OKC Mile riders will fight for victory at the state-of-the-art facility Remington Park, on the Monster Mile. The FanZone will have two areas — an indoor section and an outdoor section. The indoor area will be inside ‘Track North’ and the outdoor area will be on the north side of the facility. Chickasaw Country is to thank for providing both areas for the entire family to enjoy before and after the race.
“As a tourism destination, Chickasaw Country strives to immerse our visitor in unique experiences and attractions,” said Paige Williams Shepherd, Director of Corporate Development and Tourism for the Chickasaw Nation. “Being a part of OKC Mile allows Chickasaw Country to reach a new audience to inform and educate about the endless destinations that tourists can expect to find throughout Chickasaw Country.”
The indoor section will have an array of displays from various vendors. Guests will be able to purchase race memorabilia, jewelry, motorcycles, and much more. In addition, the Cherokee Chapter of the Antique Motorcycle Club of America will host a Vintage Race Bike Show.
Moving to the outdoor section, the selection for family activities is even greater. It will have a carnival-style set up with numerous activities for the whole family. Harley Davidson World will also display some of their most popular models for the fans to see, along with other products and displays. The OKC Mile’s presenting sponsor, Indian Motorcycle and Indian Motorcycle of OKC will have a ride-in, displaying approximately 200 bikes.
The section will feature a live band, BC & The Big Rig that will be playing all day. Food trucks will also be in attendance, serving different types of cooking for the fans to enjoy.
The kids are in for a treat during The OKC Mile. House of Kawasaki is bringing the HoK Knocker Ball Arena, featuring giant inflatable bubble balls that fans step into and then proceed to clash with each other. Face painting and bouncy houses are also on the list. Last but not least, Shawnee Honda is bringing their Strider Adventure Zone which teaches 2-5 year olds how to ride a two-wheeler.
Doors to the event open at 2:00pm to allow fans time to enjoy the FanZone prior to the racing action. For more information about The OKC Mile and to purchase tickets for the event, visit: http://okcmile.com/tickets-to-the-okc-mile-flat-track-motorcycle-race/.
