Scott wins RMLRA Points Race for 2015

When the RMLA racing season started in April everyone knew it would be a long season. Even the weather did not give us a break in the summer with a rain out or two. The last rain fell Memorial Day weekend and the races kept coming every weekend. Several of the drivers as we know raced over twenty races to support the schedule that had been laid out for the championship. Please note that the National points system and the RMLRA points are different.

Scotty, who drives Legend #6 in the Masters class, grew up in Cheyenne, Wyoming. He is married to wife Tiffany, father of three children, Brian, Lauren & Lexi and has been racing Legends since 2008. Scotty grew up in a racing family. He was always at Big Country Speedway watching his Dad Butch race Late Models and Super Modifieds. His uncles Bill McHone and Larry Sprague also raced at Big Country and at several tracks in Colorado. Scotty owns his own business, The Lariat Software Professionals. With this business, he created and maintains the Rocky Mountain Legends Racing Association web page. The web page was placed on the internet several years ago and it was set up for local racers, fans and possibly new drivers interested in US Legend Car racing in the Colorado-Wyoming area. The web site provides a lot of information on drivers, schedules, points and classifieds for sale and resale cars and parts. The web page is there to help promote Legend Car racing in the area. Scotty has also traveled to Las Vegas to compete in the US Legends Asphalt nationals, finishing 4th in 2010 and then 5th in 2014 after leading the middle of the race.  Scotty will likely finish second in the INEX national points for the 2015 season.

Darrell J. Stewart #30 comes from a racing family background. His grandfather Darrell, was a racing legend in Wyoming competing as a late model driver at the Big Country Speedway and other tracks throughout the are. When he retired his son Darrell L. Stewart was already racing and eventually bought a Legend car and has been racing his car for several years. An older brother Jason raced for a couple of seasons and has now graduated from college and is working for Boeing in Oklahoma City.  Darrell attends Ralston Valley High School in Arvada, and raced this season as a Semi Pro and was listed in the top ten drivers at a last look at the standings. He started racing in the Quarter Midget Association and did very well before climbing into a Legend car three seasons ago.This young man is a very good driver and will someday be a champion if he continues to race. His resume shows that he has eleven years of racing experience. In 2014 he was voted Rookie of the year for the RMLRA and also at Colorado National Speedway. In 2015 at Big Country Speedway he was the Legends track champion. Darrell and his Dad represent the Wildlife Racing Team. Good sponsorship will allow all of these cars to keep racing during the next few seasons. His other favorite sport is basketball which I was told that he is very good at. Good luck to Darrell no matter which career he chooses to follow.

#25 - Adam Pechman
Adam Pechman #25 Legend cars racing under Adam Pechman Racing / Pechman Motorsports is an 18 year old from Morrison Colorado from Bear Creek high school. What most people don’t know about Adam is he loves music, he loves to sing and he is good at it. Most weeks he sings with a state group called “Sounds” and “Onyx”.  He went to school many times and had to drive in and fly to races because of his singing and school. Adam has been racing since he was five years old and raced all over the country.  He has been champion in many classes in youth racing including nationals, winter nationals, state and regional racing. Adam, was 2011 young gun of the year for RMLRA and US Legends 3 time Colorado 2012-2014 semi pro state champion and 2014 finished 14th in semi pro national points and qualified at the 2014 Legend Nationals and received the most points and won the pole for the race.  An injury to his dad’s hand in the last month of the season may not have hindered the desire this young man has to be at the top of the points list at the end of the season. Adam also is classified as a Semi-Pro and with all the races that were run this season locally he also was listed high in the national standings. Something you may not know is Pechman Motorsports missed two races in 2011 when he was finishing up his quarter midget racing and has not missed a RMLRA race date since then according to the records listed on the web page. Congratulations on that huge effort.

Finishing fourth this season was Darrell L Stewart a veteran Legend driver. You cannot say enough about Darrell other than the fact that he is an excellent driver and even gave up his seat in the #03 so that Darrell J. might have a good chance at winning the points race. Give Darrell and his family the credit he needs making sure both cars were ready to race on race night.

#16 - Travis Roe
The fifth position was filled by rookie Travis Roe #16. Travis was able to attend all but one race this season and by finishing the features he accrued a lot of points and was awarded the fifth position. Travis as a rookie was in the Young Lions classification. The car that the race team purchased was the #58 of Kyle Ray. A very good choice in buying the car. This young driver drove in all the races but one earlier in the year and has learned his way around the track. Track time is valuable to all young drivers and he finished many features throughout the season. He competed as a Young Lion.

Not to slight anybody that drove and put a lot of miles on your trucks going to and from the races but just looking at the standings will tell you a lot. A lot of time goes into preparing these cars to race every race day. Many drivers took time to support Legend racing and most of the time we had good turnouts.

Some of the information listed above was received from drivers or family members.

Thanks to all of you who took the extra step this summer to promote Legend Racing in Colorado, Wyoming and Nebraska. There are a lot of nice people in this Legend Racing group and I am proud of you all.
