Becoming involved with Legends Car Racing!

Many racing fans become involved in racing by just coming out to the track to watch a few car races. While sitting there, their thoughts usually go a little further when they start thinking about owning or driving their own car. Quite possibly a friend at work has been telling you about his adventures on the weekends at the track. Maybe the neighbor has a car and you found yourself going over to see what is going on and the next thing you know he hands you a wrench and you canʼt put it down. Welcome to Racing 101. The neighborʼs son or daughter has been racing for several years in the quarter midget series and has reached the age and size that he needs to move to another division. Many of these drivers have seen the Legends cars racing and possibly have been hanging around a friend that has moved up from the quarter midgets. Quite possibly you may be in the prime of your life and are looking for a great division to compete in. The masters division in Legend racing is probably the best choice to race in. All these master drivers are easy to get along with and will share their knowledge to help you get started. One of the first things you will notice at the track is the camaraderie with other drivers when you break down and need help. Many of these drivers and car owners will be there to make sure your car is ready to race in the feature. That is the way of the RMLRA and it will always be the same year after year.  You might have the interest now to possibly start looking at a car for you or a member of your family to drive. I will say right now, that before you go and buy a used car or a new one, make sure your finances are in order to go racing. No matter what you decide to race it is going to cost you money to race your car. If not just the pit fees, tires, fuel and damage you receive while racing, it does add up. The cost of racing goes up when you are involved in an accident. Most of the accidents might be avoided if you are experienced and know what to look for as you are racing around the track. Make sure you know all about your race car before you go at full speed on the track. Seat time is very important for rookie drivers.The main thing that you need to do before you start is find a way financially to compete in this sport weekly.

I personally have been with the Legends here in Colorado since they started. I do not own a car, but started out helping in Tech for several years, and now I am involved at the track as the Raceceiver official for the RMLRA. The Newsletter that is released every week during the season has been my idea and I have enjoyed doing it. This summer will be my last season with the RMLRA. I turn seventy-five and do not want to travel much anymore. So if anyone out there would like to keep this great organization informed with all the news, please contact me. I did have one person tell me last season that they would take over.
