2020 Season ends with good car count and lots of promising drivers.

The season came to an end Saturday evening with Darrell J. Stewart taking the checkered flag in the second fast feature of the evening. Chris Eggleston won the first fast main. In the regular Legend main the second group of cars racing in the Legend first main was won by rookie Colton Crocker. By winning the race he was moved to the second fast main where he finished fourteenth. The second regular Legend main was won by Jeremy Brett Reid of Cheyenne, Wy. Congratulations to the winners of these races. Several of these drivers may be headed out to Las Vegas for the Asphalt Nationals.

A car count of thirty-five cars were on hand to start the Legend features. Thanks to all the new drivers that joined up with us to make this a successful season with good car counts especially at Colorado National. Hwy 92 and Intermountain Speedways also enjoyed good car counts this season. A lot of race cars travelled many miles to race with us this season. Let us hope that the Pandemic virus is gone by next spring and I25 Speedway is able to reopen their doors and race cars will be back on the track in Pueblo. I would like at this time to remind all of you that several of you did not receive any national points this season because of not being an INEX member. The national rules say that you must be a member and renew your license every season. We had several Legend drivers that did not have a license and I will stop right there.

Bandolero drivers were also in the same classification trying to race without a license. To all drivers, get your license early and avoid coming to the track and not have your license to race. Bandolero feature winners were Ryker McConahay and Huston Wells in the Bandits West division and Bryanna Bruce won the first feature race for the Bandolero Outlaws West division. Sammy Haugen drove his #98 to the checkered flag in the second feature.

I was told late this afternoon that the #66 Legend had been DQ”d for the races Saturday evening.

Announcement for the Awards Banquet will be released when information is available.

D J Stewart RMLRA Champion 2020
Driving the #30 Legend this season Darrell raced in twenty-four RMLRA races and captured the 2020 RMLRA championship. The father-son Wildlife Race team travels to many tracks during the summer and when the RMLRA is not racing, Wildlife Racing may be out of state looking for a race track to race on. Darrell also won the 2019 RMLRA points championship. Congratulations to this outstanding achievement.

ROTY for 2020 goes to Tim Trostel III a first year Young Lion fromThornton, Colorado. Tim finished ahead of at least five drivers looking to claim the ROTY award. It also looks like he may have ended up in sixth place in the points race.

Tessa Marine, Hayden Moody, Bret Reid and Martin Gatzulis were among the top five
