Thank you to those of you that joined us last night at Charlotte Motor Speedway’s Speedway Club! We had a wonderful night celebrating all of our award winners!

We’d like to thank Key Note Speaker, William Byron! Finally we’d like to congratulate special award winners Devo Keith, who took home the very special Commitment to Excellence award for all of his years of hard work and dedication to the U.S. Legend Cars community. Asphalt Master International Points Champion, Scotty Scott, was named the 2017 Bilstein Madonna Award Winner. He has consistently demonstrated the highest level of sportsmanship and exemplary character on and off the track, and has had an influential role in the Rocky Mountain Legends Racing Association. We were honored to present such deserving competitor with this prestigious award! More Info

What is the new FZ09 engine

After many years of study, USLCI has introduced their new water cooled and fuel injected engine. On the RMLRA Facebook page the FZ09 FAQ answered a lot of questions that will be asked. Do take time to read this article. The 1200 and 1250 engine will be able for use until you decide to change over. It appears that the 1250 engine has been discontinued making and hence the change to a newer model. So those of you who have the 1200 and 1250, run them this season and next season until you make the switch to the new FZ09 engine. USLCI is reporting the engines to be in the same horsepower range as the 1250 engine. With the short tracks that we race on there should be no advantage right now. Like anything new, USLCI has done a lot of
study on this project. I personally think that here in the very hot weather of Colorado and surrounding states the water cooled engine should be a good investment, and cost effective for rebuilds.

2-way Radio’s for 2018 optional

Please read the instructions for radio use this season. They are not mandatory and use of the Raceceiver will still be your main communication from the tower to the race car. 2-way radio’s are not permitted in Bandolero race cars. Raceceiver communication only.

When we do get on the track to go racing, drivers will be instructed to listen but also keep an eye on the lights on the track. If a car spins and is down on the bottom of the track the drivers may be alerted to it being there. The flagman may not throw the caution flag. Very important to check the lights on the track as a precaution while at full speed.

Rookies coming into Legend car and Bandolero racing, when the caution flag is thrown we will go back to the last completed lap under green. Hold your position on the track and the Raceceiver official will place you where you belong.

When using the Raceceiver please note the use of premium batteries in your Raceceiver. Do get in the habit of turning off the Raceceiver when getting out of car. This will help preserve the battery for one days racing at the track.
