Medina wins Legend 30 lap Main at I-25/Rayl wins rain shortened Bando Main

I have made two trips to I-25 Speedway this year and it has rained both times. I would probably make the farmers in the area very happy if we raced a lot of weekends in Pueblo. We had sixteen Legends and ten Bandolero’s in the pits for Saturday nights National Qualifiers. The Bandolero feature was cut short when the rain began to fall. Greg Rayl driving his number fifty-five was in the lead with Brody Moore racing close behind. The cars left the track and we sat and watched it rain for an hour. During the rain the I-25 track personnel had trucks on the track trying to make it possible to continue the racing program. The rain eventually stopped and the track was ready to race on right after the track became dry and ready for racing. Thanks to the staff at I-25 Speedway we were able to run our NationalQualifier.

In Bandolero Heat races, Greg Rayl won the Trophy Dash and James Starcher also won aBandolero heat race.

Danny Medina had a great night of racing with quick time, winning the Trophy Dash and thethirty lap National Qualifier. Danny will take his car to Las Vegas to compete at the NationalAsphalt Championships later this season. Wayne Barlock who is having a very good year finished second. Scotty Scott who had ignition problems earlier in the evening, corrected the problem and finished third in the main event. Nick Cooper and Zachary Witherwax finished fourth and fifth.

Legend Heat races were won by Travis Roe and Scotty Scott. I think that we were sort disappointed with the low turnout of cars for this race but, thanks to those who traveled to race with the RMLRA in Pueblo. There was an attempt to have at least twenty cars on hand for a bonus payoff. Other than two cars not being able to start the main, it was a good night of clean racing. Michael Anderson who has been racing with us the past several weeks made contact with the wall and will have some work cut out for him to return to the track. Mike thanks formaking a commitment to race with the RMLRA.

Kyle McCartney was on the track Saturday evening making his season debut. Kyle has been racing Legends for many seasons but has had to take time off the past several years. The number eighteen ran pretty good for the first time out. Hope to see you at more races.
