RMLRA news and information September 24, 2013

Just a little information for you as we had the weekend off and will be back on the track September 28th for the last points race of the season. First, I want to mention to everyone the I will not be in the tower with the Raceceiver. I will be attending Parents Day at Colorado Mesa University in Grand Junction. Angie MacEwen who works in the tower at Colorado National Speedway will be the voice in your ear on that date. Please be sure to set your Raceceiver to #165. I will be back for the final race of the season October 5, 2013.

As we close in on the final weeks of the season, we can look back to the start of the season and the anticipation of starting the 2013 season. Several months have gone bye and several of our races have been cancelled due to the weather and it now comes down to a couple of weekends of racing. I think what I am trying to say to you is the question.

Did you enjoy the racing? What will you do next season?

Folks, we have an awesome car count of Legends in our area, and we have to turn down appearances of our RMLRA because we already race over twenty times a season. Remember that you are racing these cars to possibly move up some day to another division. Mostly everyone that is with the Legends are having fun racing their Legend. Once in awhile there is a race when things happen on the track and drivers voice their displeasure. Not everyone is happy on those occasions. You are a great group of Legend car owners and drivers. Keep up the good work and just remember that the bumpers on the front of your cars are mainly for appearance, not blasting someone out of the way. Protect your oil coolers and everyone, especially the track workers who have to clean up the oil.

Please remember that lapped cars or cars that are shown the move over flag that you know where you should move to.

At Colorado National Speedway the track officials want your car at the bottom of the track. Once you are passed we request that you stay there when you see cars moving up to pass you. On the smaller tracks you need to stay up high when the flag is given to you. Make sure your Raceceiver is working. It might save you some repair work on your car.
