    JULY 5-6 IS A NO GO

    After much thought and hard work by Trey Southerland, UWP has decided to not move forward with the July 5-6 race. We would personally like to thank Trey for his time and energy that he put into the proposed event in Oklahoma City, OK.


    We would also like to thank the Oklahoma City Convention and Visitors Bureau and the USA Rowing Facility.


    Pro-Am riders will be required to submit an IRS W-9 form before they will receive their contingency check. The IRS makes it real easy for you, click here, fill out the form, print it and hand it in at registration. W-9 forms will also be available at the race site.

    Don’t forget to check out the new website at www.ProWatercross.com
    Start your engines and we can’t wait to see you at the races…
