Very Good Turnout for set up class

Thanks to all of you from both classes of Legends and Bandoleros that showed up for the set up classes at Leary Racing Products. Here is hoping that you learned a lot and that the information helps you in setting up your race car. Thanks to Darrell L and Darrell J for helping with Legend car instructions. Jeff Groff from the TSR Bandolero Race team worked with the Bandolero parents. I left early and did not see if anybody else was helping. I am sure that several members of the TSR team helped with the class.

Please remember the Orientation class at Intermountain Speedway April 4, 2020 is mandatory for all rookie Legend drivers and all Bandolero drivers.

The photographs of paid membership drivers will be taken at the track hopefully in March during the hot lap practices. Scotty Scott takes these pictures and posts them on the web site. Here is hoping that he will be able to do this during the month of March before the season starts. It has been our practice to post only pictures of RMLRA members.

Hot lap and CNS track tech will be held during the month of March. There are three practice dates scheduled. March 14, 21, 28

Still looking for someone to take over the Raceceiver this season and take over the responsibility of keeping the race cars informed when the cars are on the track.

I will not be at the track during the month of March and do not plan to travel to many of the out of town races. Hope to make a few of the CNS races.

Do get your INEX license applications in the mail. The application for the minor license does take time to get. My advice is to get it in the mail now. Please try to get the applications in the mail now. I am not sure if I will be there to accept the applications on the first scheduled race date, April 18, 2020

The Rumble in the Rockies will be raced May 22-24 at Hwy 92 Speedway in Gering, NE, Intermountain Speedway in Cheyenne, Wy, and at Colorado National Speedway in Dacona, Co. Get your reservations in the mail for this three days of racing. There are many motels in the area and you should be planning ahead for The Rumble In The Rockies National Qualifier.

Orientation/Set Up Class and preparing to go racing with the RMLRA & RMBRA

Legends 10:00 AM Instructor Darrell J. Stewart Wildlife Racing
Bandos 12:30 PM Instructor Jeff Groff TSR Racing

Information on the RMLRA/RMBRA memberships are as of Sunday February 16, 2020 show Legends with thirty-six members and the RMBRA with twelve cars shown with driver memberships. We will accept memberships at the set up class February 22, Just want to let all the new drivers joining the RMLRA and racing for the the first season, and you are going to run for ROTY at CNS that they do have a form on their web site for those of
you who are going to race for that championship. The rule of eligibility for that championship and the RMLRA. Please read the CNS rule book for your information to assist you in your filing for ROTY.

Bandolero & Legend Rookies Mandatory Orientation April 4th, 2020 at Intermountain Speedway in Cheyenne, WY. All rookie drivers must attend this special day of instructions.

This class will start at 9AM and go throughout the afternoon until 5 PM We are hoping for a good turnout of drivers in both divisions of cars. Please have your car ready to go on the track at 9AM. You will need to have your Raceceiver for this Orientation class. A lunch is being organized as was held in April 2019. More information to come. Legend drivers this would be a good time to get some practice at this track if you need it.

There are a lot of new drivers coming into Legend Car and Bandolero racing this season and at times you will have to have some knowledge about the car running beside you. With so many new drivers on the track and trying to race, it will take a lot of practice on the track to familiarize your driver with all the movement that is going on.

For all you new drivers CNS is a very fast track and sometimes drivers have a tendency to over drive the car, loosing control, making contact with other race cars and damaging their cars. One big thing to think about is that if you loose control of your car and start to spin backward or up to the wall, make sure you keep the brakes on until traffic has cleared you. By rolling back down the track in front of other cars that are looking to avoid your car.

You may have bought your car during the fall and winter and think you are ready to hit the track. If your racing experience is little to none, you will need this class.

February Set up class for Legends and Bandoleros

Chilly Willy Races at Tucson

The RMLRA made a good start for the 2020 season as Chris Eggleston won three Feature races this past weekend to take home all the hardware during the big weekend of racing. DJ Stewart finished second and Travis Roe with a fourth place finish in the fifty lap feature race on Sunday. Darrell J. also won a feature race on Friday night.You can find the results at Tucson Speedway.com under results. All three days are shown
with the results from the three mains along with qualifying. Good job drivers. Nine drivers from our area made the trip to race The Chilly Willy weekend in Tucson.

Set Up Class

Set up classes to be held at Leary Racing February 22, 2020 This class starts at 10am New car drivers and owners should attend this set up class. Bring a seat with you if you think you may need one. The class usually runs around two hours.

Legends 10:00 AM Instructor Darrell J. Stewart Wildlife Racing
Bandos 12:30 PM Instructor Jeff Groff TSR Racing

Read the Rule Book

As we prepare for the upcoming season all drivers should take time to read the INEX rule book and have themselves with the knowledge of what the rule book says. Remember the main rule that if the rule book says that you cannot do it, it cannot be done. Tech rules are pretty clear and if a no-go gauge is used, there is no excuse for error in tech. Read the rules of replacing parts on your car. This is a spec-racing class. One of the new rules to be watched closely this season is what may appear on social media. Making complaints with profanity or hand gestures may find you on your way home very early with a DQ and nothing to show for the race date at the track. Race tracks are to report the problems to INEX and the guilty party may be paying the fine. Remember the driver is responsible for the pit crew and the driver will receive the fine and suspension.

CNS General Rules @ CNS Web Site

Please do read the rules for the race tracks that we race at, especially restarts, where you can accelerate and when you can pass the car in front of you when the green flag starts the race. The front row on the start of the race should be side by side. Penalty on the restart may send you to the rear.

Don’t forget the Tri-State Swap Meet February 8th & 9th. Also the Rumble in the Rockies coming this Memorial Day weekend in May.

Plans for the upcoming season will be discussed in preparation for the 2020 racing season. There is a good chance that the 2020 RMLRA racing schedule may be available to be handed out. Additional information can be found on the RMLRA Facebook site. A set up class is being organized and times and dates will be released soon. A good possibility that this may be held at Leary Racing Products. If so, this will be a good time to buy or order your parts from our Legend dealership. Your annual membership can be paid at either meeting. The yearly fee for this membership is $35.00 for the driver. To be eligible for the RMLRA points championship you must be a member. If you are not chasing the points, a membership shows to other members that you support and are helping promote Legend and Bandolero racing in our area.

Several items on the US Legends web site under the INEX Tech Area have addressed the fender policy for Legend cars effective 2020. Please also read the New Social Media Policy that is now in effect.

The Bandolero cars are being reorganized for the 2020 season. Since the Bandolero class was organized in 2018 the car count has been good at CNS but could use a few more participants at the other three tracks that we race at here in the Colorado, Wyoming and Nebraska area.

CHILLY WILLY Tuscon, AZ

Drivers that are planning to attend the Chilly Willy racing weekend are encouraged to contact Wayne Barlock to plan ahead for this event. There is a registration fee for this weekend of racing.

RMLRA 2019/20 Fuel Rule

RMLRA race cars Legends and Bandoleros will race with premium gasoline. The Yamaha Motor Corp. recommends the use of 89 octane unleaded gasoline. Please see 2019 INEX Rule Book page 31 for further information. This fuel can be obtained at CNS for about $4.00 per gallon. When buying make sure that you do
not buy the racing fuel that CNS has available for their Super Late Models and other classes. Fuel samples will be tested after feature races if needed. If you are traveling to race a INEX championship race, make sure that you have drained your tank before going to that track as sometimes what you buy at that track or designated place to purchase fuel may not test clean when tested.

Car Numbers for Legends & Bandoleros

We do have a rule in the organization about racing the same number that a member is racingthat you have on your car. Please check with Harold for a number to place on your car. Tracks that we race at with score boards cannot add a number or letter for your car. Please help us out when thinking of a number for your car. When you join the RMLRA your number is yours as long as your membership is paid. We also want you to race at least once a year. If by chance you sell your car I would like to know. Thanks for your help with this item. I try to keep up with email addresses and news releases and I need your address. If you have just purchased a car
and plan to race with the RMLRA in 2020, or the person that you may have sold a car to, to place them on the list. We would like to keep you informed.

Bandoleros close season at Lake Havasu, AZ

Congratulations to the Bandolero drivers and teams that travelled to the WestNationals last weekend.

Several Bando drivers and race teams traveled to Lake Havasu AZ this past weekend and raced at the Bandolero West Championships. In looking at some of the results no one driver was able to capture the first place trophy. The race track looked nice and fast and I hope everyone survived this new event for Bandolero cars in the West. When the races were over, Brody Moore finished third in the Western Points Bandolero Outlaws West championship. Chasen Groff finished fourth, Zachary Morris fifth and Bryanna Bruce was tenth.

In the Bandit division Charles Starcher finished fifth and Wyatt Dent in their chase for the championship.

In both Legends and Bandoleros the points that you received on the RMLRA schedule go into the number of races required and the number of cars in the class that you are racing in. Congratulations to all of the drivers who raced this summer at the area tracks.

There are race tracks such as the Bullring in Las Vegas that offer a winter schedule for both divisions of cars and you might inquire about the road racing schedule. You might want to try it.

RMLRA news update

Asphalt Nationals

As the season is coming to the end here in our region lets not forget the Asphalt Nationals to be held at Carteret County Speedway in Swansboro, NC October 17-19 Do expect at least a hundred cars in the pits because of the North Carolina location.  Not to worry as you will only be racing against drivers in your classification.  f you have not read anything about this racetrack, it is a 4/10 mile track with 8 degree banking in the turns and the straightaways are banked at 4 degrees. This will be a very fast track and finding the correct gear ratio may be the answer to a lot of speed. Maybe you have seen some results from previous Legend races that were held there and know somebody to contact and give you the information that you are looking for.

Bandolero West National Championships

The INEX Bandolero West Asphalt Oval Championship will be held November 15-16 at Havasu95Speedway in Lake Havasu, AZ Several of our Bandolero drivers will be there for this championship event. The track web site link is listed below https://www.havasu95speedway.com/#home-1-section

RMLRA News update

A little local info to pass on to you. We are guests at the speedways that we race at and in case you have a problem with the feature results do contact the pit boss or pit shack to find out the results of the race. These results are usually posted at the pit shack shortly after the race. What I post are unofficial results and what the track sends to INEX as results are usually what is official. Make sure when you talk to the track officials after the race that you are in control of what you are trying to pass along to them with your information. Be calm and I hope that you get your point across to them.  We will try to address the problem should it come to our attention.

Double points for the RMLRA championship are available for the next three races. You may not want to miss any of these if you are in the hunt for the points championship. The weather looks good for this Saturday for Legends and Bandoleros and looking to see you at the track.

The US Legends schedule shows the Legends with two features on October 5 at Colorado National Speedway. This is Challenge Cup XLV, Track points for the CNS  hampionship will be available as well as RMLRA club points and national points.
