2018 RMLRA Season Opener Saturday Night @ CNS

It is time for the green flag to fly for the RMLRA Legend cars. Saturday evening the season officially opens the 2018 RMLRA season, and the quest for the 2018 championship will begin. With twenty-nine racing dates which includes four racing double headers a total of thirty three features could possibly be raced.

Their could be a good turnout of cars for the first race. We have forty drivers with their INEX licenses as of April 8, 2018 We also have several drivers without their licenses showing on the USLCI web page. Included on the list are thirteen new drivers and all could be considered rookies. While on the track during hot lap practice please watch out for the yellow rear  umpers. These are first year drivers and may not drive in a straight line. All of our drivers that are not up to speed are reminded to stay low on the track and hold your line as race cars approach you from behind. Good luck to all of you on opening night. Drivers are reminded to sign in your car at the Pit Tower after entering the pit. Inside the tower you will find a clipboard with Legends on it. Please sign in so the track can follow the number of cars that are in the pits.

New Fuel Rule

Also a reminder that the new fuel rule will be in place as of the start of the season and fuel will be available at the track for sale so please use the Legend fuel and not the track racing fuel. The price should be around $4.00 per gallon. This fuel is replacing the racing fuel that sells for about $8.00 per gallon. The new fuel will be a lot easier on engines and should keep the engines a little cooler. Ask questions if you do not know where the new location for fuel is. The Raceceiver should be turned to channel 165 during practice and races. Weather
permitting we will see you in the pits Saturday afternoon. If you have a problem with your Raceceiver contact me. I will be in the pits for practice and then I move to the main scoring tower for the races. Remember to use good quality batteries in your Raceceiver. Also remember to turn your Raceceiver off while not in your car. The Raceceiver will drain your battery down if not turned off.

Two Way Radio

If your race team is using a two way radio the spotter must be in the designated spotter area in the pit side grandstands. Remember that the Raceceiver will override your two way radio and may interrupt your communication with your driver or spotter.
  • Pit Gates open 1:00 PM
  • Practice 2:30 PM
  • Races start 5:30 PM
Bandolero and Legend Practice at Big Country

The weather this past Saturday kept our young drivers in the Bandolero class and first year Legend drivers off the track at Big Country Speedway in Cheyenne this past Saturday. A make up date may be released soon.

Drivers seeking to get on the tracks at I-25 and Big Country can possibly find information on their web sites.
