Many sponsors and people were given credit for their work and contributions to the club  this season. President Scotty Scott also mentioned the fact that many Legend organizations know the success that the RMLRA has with the Legend Car racing in our area.  Some great door prizes were given out during the drawings throughout the evening. Winners of 2018 INEX memberships went to Krystal Faulkingham and Travis Roe. These were donated by John Haggan of USLCI. Also the USLCI gear was donated from US Legends by Ash Garrett. These men went out of their way to help this Awards Banquet to be a success. Thank you USLCI for these gifts. Those gifts were valued at $165.00 per membership.

Also given away to drivers in the drawings were many items from Clegg Racing Products such as wheel covers and steering wheel covers. You had to be there to appreciate all the items that were donated by the RMLRA sponsors this season. 

At the end of the Awards Banquet an award was given out for his many years of involvement with the RMLRA. So many nice things were said about this award with his dedication and presence with the RMLRA for many years. On this jacket it read RMLRA Lifetime Member. Scotty mentioned that it was the first Lifetime Membership awarded to anyone from the club. Your reporter Harold Kraus accepted this award and thanked all in attendance for allowing himself to be a part of RMLRA since Legend Cars first started racing in 1995. I was at a loss for words to say to those in attendance. Here is hoping that you understood what I was trying to say to you.
