Sooner Off-Road heads to competition!

May 23, 2017

The week of competition has arrived!  The Sooner Off-Road team will be leaving tomorrow for Pittsburg, KS for the SAE Baja Kansas competition.  The team has worked very hard to complete this year's car ("Eleanor") but their work would not have been possible without your support!  Thanks to your generous donations, the team has improved dramatically upon last year's vehicle in terms of performance and we are very optimistic about our chances to take a big jump forward in the standings compared to last year.

There are several ways to follow Sooner Off-Road while we are at competition.  You can visit our Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/SoonerOffRoad/) and Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/sooneroffroad/) pages to see frequent updates on the team's progress throughout the entire competition.  You can also visit the Baja SAE Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/BajaSAE/) and Twitter pages (https://twitter.com/Baja_SAE), as well as their website (http://www.bajasae.net) to see updates including standings after each event. 

Most excitingly, the dynamic and endurance events will be live streamed at http://www.pittstate.tv.  Look out for Eleanor (#59) and the Sooner Off-Road Team in action! 

Thank you once again for your support of the team; we hope to do you, the University of Oklahoma, and the Gallogly College of Engineering proud!

We will leave you with a link to a video of Eleanor in Action!  https://www.instagram.com/p/BT2BSmvlcoO/?taken-by=sooneroffroad

Two days left!

November 01, 2016

Good Afternoon,

There are only 2 days left to be a part of the Sooner Off-Road Thousands Strong campaign project! 

So far we have raised over $6,000.  We are just under $750 away from reaching our new goal of $7,000! Now is the time to contribute; we are SO close to having our vehicle completely funded!

Don’t forget that all donations are tax deductible and go to a great cause!

Thank you for your support,

The Sooner Off-Road Team

Halfway there!

October 16, 2016

We wanted to update you about The Sooner Off-Road Team and tell you that it has reached $5,220 in 13 days with 28 supporters!

Only 18 days are left!  We are excited to have come as far as we have in this campaign.  I wanted to remind you about the valuable hands-on engineering experience our team will gain as a result of your generosity!

Due to our current success, we are trying to stretch our goal to $7,000.  We have estimated our costs for the 2016-2017 year to be about $20,000 so we are just hoping to get closer to our total goal sooner! Please keep emailing, sharing, and retweeting with your friends to make this project a huge success!

Thank you for your support,

The Sooner Off-Road Team
