In case you have not heard or seen the change in the RMLRA schedule, June 1, Hwy
92, June 16, I-25 and September 1, Colorado National Speedway have been changed to National Qualifiers. The Nationals, I have been told will be held in Atlanta, Georgia this fall.

Upcoming Gering-Cheyenne Race weekend June 1-2
Here are a few Motels in the Gering-Scottsbluff area if you are looking for a place to spend the night. The Monument Inn (Microtel Inn) located in Gering used to be a great place to stay. Their parking lot was large and many drivers would roll their cars out of the trailers in the morning and check their cars and make the set up changes before driving over to Big Country Speedway in Cheyenne. This season the Pit gates at BCS will open at 1:00 PM. In talking with the Monument Inn (Microtel Inn) last week they quoted me $78.00 for a double queen bed room. There are several choices of where you might want to stay at in the area. Check the Internet and you may find several more motels in the area. Here are a few numbers.
  • Comfort Inn, Scottsbluff 308-632-7510
  • Circle S Lodge Gering 308-436-2157
  • Super 8, Scottsbluff 308-635-1600
  • Monument Inn Gering 308-436-1950
First Race April 21 @ Colorado National Speedway
Just a reminder to get your National INEX license in the mail as opening day for the Legends at Colorado National Speedway is April 21. Make sure your transponder is charged for the races. Receivers are mandatory, channel 165 is our network. Frequency 452.0500. Make sure your battery is in good shape. If you hear static change your battery. They are only good for one day of racing. Be sure to turn off your Receiver when you get out of the car. My job at the race track is being your spotter. I will always try to see the problem on the track and let you know there is a problem. As always, when I yell something like turn four, start looking at that area and the track lights. Stay in the green mode until you see the caution light come on or you hear me with the yellow, yellow to slow down and hold your position. If the red light comes on please stop ASAP.

TECH TOOLS AVAILABLE
Legend Racing is a spec class and I would refer to your rule books when you get them. After a heat race or a feature the top five cars will be sent to tech. That number could change with the number of cars on hand. Make sure you check your car before the races. You may borrow the tools from the tech area but please return them ASAP.

Please remember this rule that is the rule book. If this rule book does not specifically
say that you can change/modify/add something, then you must consider that the change/modification/addition is illegal.

THE CLASS OF 2012 YELLOW BUMPERS

As of Monday, April 9, here is the list of new drivers that will be racing with the RMLRA as first year rookie drivers. Several of these drivers will be sporting yellow bumpers.
  • Brad Tilton, Jereme Wall and Larry Pachello appear to have racing experience. I am not positive on this information so bear with me if it is incorrect. If you want to run for rookie of the year at CNS you must notify them.
  • #87 Bill Blevens of Arvada has bought the #19 car from Scott Miller and will race as a Master. Bill has no racing experience, and will be a true rookie on the track. He is a neighbor of Scotty Scott and will be relying on Scotty for help.
  • #33 Ryan Gaylord of Lakewood will take over the car this season. He will compete for the ROTY as a Young Lion.
  • #21 Ryan Jones of Arvada will compete as a Young Lion. He has been at the track for practice three times and looks real good in the car. He is moving up from Quarter Midgets
  • #19 Larry Pachello of Wheat Ridge driving in the Masters class. Larry has driving experience and just needs some seat time to get his car up to speed. He comes from a racing family in the Denver area.
  • #36 Joshua Richard, Peyton Colorado
  • #37 Garrett Richard, Colorado Springs. Joshua and Garrett are the sons of Dave Richard who drove the #37 last season. Both drivers will race as Semi Pros. They have been to all three CNS practices and are running very good.
  • #11 Jessica Savage, Aurora, Colorado will race as a Semi Pro. Her brother Dan races a Late Model at CNS. Jessica has no racing experience, but was raised in a racing family.
  • #4 Brad Tilton of Cheyenne, WY. has bought the #8 car of John Krizman. Brad has a lot of racing experience and will not race as a rookie. He willl also drive a Late Model this season.
  • #9 Glenn Tilton of Cheyenne, WY will see some racing time later this season. The Tilton Racing team bought the #62 car from Phil Peconi late this spring.
  • #5 Adrian Walker of Aurora will be driving this season as a Masters. He owned the car last season but was unable to race.
  • #14 Jereme Wall of Commerce City, who has been racing in other divisions will be driving the former #96 of Rick Rusk. He will be a candidate for ROTY. Jereme finished third in the Figure 8 feature last week at CNS.
  • #12 Cody Castor of Bennett, CO has just contacted us and he will be driving as a Young Lion. The team has bought the former #20 of Randy Avollio racing out of Scottsbluff, NE. The Castor name should be familiar as they have been racing Super Modifieds for many years. Cody has some Quarter Midget Racing experience.
  • There is the possibility of another driver or two that may join us this season but as of today they have not responded to email to them. Maybe the wrong address.
It is time to go racing and this will be my seventeenth year with the Legends. I always ask at this time of the season, that if someone out there would like to take over this Newsletter to please let me know. It should be someone who attends the races.

See you in the Pits.
