All these drivers will be the Yellow Bumper Class, competing for RMLRA rookie of the year in 2011. All drivers that run for rookie of the year must either paint their rear bumpers yellow or have them covered with yellow tape.

There were many of you who stayed for the set up class after the meeting. Plenty of information should have been given and hopefully it should have been beneficial to everyone.

Meeting Highlights
Mike Leary opened the meeting with information concerning 600 Racing. Parts that were back ordered shouldbe available sometime this week. Apparently equipment and supplies from 600 Racing are slow and should be available very soon. Mike also discussed the tire situation and more information on the tires will be coming soon. BF Goodrich tires may be used for practice and information will be made known (Federal Tires) to car owners on their availability as soon as information is released. Mike was to look into the advantages of having a NASCAR and INEX membership. Memberships and insurance was also discussed.

The schedule was discussed and the points systems were discussed and voted upon and passed. Information on the qualifyers will be released when they become official.

Colorado National Speedway released information on Sunday concerning the use of transponders at their track. They will be using the same ones that have been used at Big Country many seasons. Check the CNS web page for information on rental or purchase. You might get on the internet and look for used ones. It looks like AMB will be the ones used at both tracks. CNS and Big Country. Many of you should have them in your trailer as they were available to be purchased from Big Country when they started to use them. Make sure you buy the correct one as there are several brands available, and some are not interchangeable.

The #07 car driven by Bill Seip, Parker, Colorado, competed in the Masters division last season. Sponsored by
Bodyʼs by Brown & South Federal NAPA Auto Parts, Bill finished fifth in the RMLRA points last season. He also was credited with his first Masters feature win. The #07 & #7 cars are teamed together, and with their good looking paints jobs, you can always spot them on the track.


Next up is the inspections and hot lap sessions at CNS, March 19 & 26. Pits 9:00-4:00. INEX Tech officials and equipment should be at the track.  Pleease remember this is a safety shake down and not a racing session. Please be considerate to not put yourself in a racing situation with all of these new drivers that may be on the track with
you.  See you in the Pits at Colorado National Speedway during the safety inspections and hot lap sessions.
