ROCKY MOUNTAIN LEGENDS RACING ASSOCIATION-AUGUST 7, 2011

Colorado National Speedway was a hot place to be on Saturday. The temperature was over ninety degrees. During the afternoon the racing surface was hot and slick. Twenty-one Legends were on hand for the early racing program which started at 4:10 PM. As most of you know the K&N NASCAR series was in town and the time that was put on the show was demanding for the track. My question to ask is why was the time issue in so much demand? Why was the race being tape delayed for almost two weeks and time so important.  Have they not heard of tape editing. I am sure there was something that many of us don’t know about. I thought that Colorado National did a very good job with the feature races as they brought the cars out and introduced all the drivers before their features started.

In the Legends feature the racing was good and tight with Ray, Clegg, Eggleston and Gallegos racing hard for the win. When the checkered flag flew Kyle Ray had his first win at CNS this season. It was a very good race until the caution flag came out. A broken bolt in the rear of Eggleston’s car, ended his evening. Mike Gallegos had to pull off the track during the caution flag. Engine problems were reported to cause Gallegos to drop out of the race. He later returned but finished six laps off the lead lap.

In the all important RMLRA championship points race Kyle Ray extended his point lead to fourteen points over Scotty Scott. Scotty finished fifth in the race. Ray had a single point lead going into the race. There are several cars that can move right into contention by becoming legible by racing at I-25 in September. Those cars have not met the requirements of racing at I-25 Speedway this season.

As many of you know by now, Terry Plummer has bought the #12 car of Tyler Chrisinger, and has replaced the number with the number fourteen. The number had belonged to Gary Stevens, but due to work related problems, Gary never had a chance to get his car on the track this season. He voluntarily gave up his number, so Terry a former National champion and RMLRA champion could get back into the fourteen car. With two weeks off before we race again, Terry has some work to change over his car to where he likes the handling, and he should find his way into the top five in the features. Terry drove hard last night and finished sixth.

With the next two weeks being off dates, it sure would be nice to see a few cars repaired and back to the track. I have heard that several cars are in the frame shops being repaired. Thanks to all of you who make the RMLRA a special racing show wherever we race. Remember without all of your cars we might not be the RMLRA.
