The 2022 Grands Build - The Dirt Diary

Updated: Nov 20, 2022

Eight days. That's all you get when building the track for the largest BMX Racing weekend of the year. Track builders, rack masters, and quad packers work non-stop to build and create a BMX track for all skill levels to race through.

This year we bring you a daily diary. What was accomplished, what went wrong, and what is the current focus of the crew as they fight the clock to practice day. Follow along and stay tuned to be updated daily.

The 2022 Tulsa Turn was born.
