This cooler weather will be awesome for fast racing, dress warm.
Jet Cars will still run twice tonight. But because of the delays they will run at slightly different times than previously scheduled.

WEST VALLEY CITY ‒ In the movie “Castaway” famed actor Tom Hanks plays a guy named Chuck who survives a plane crash and ends up by himself on a deserted island. At one point Chuck is determined to start a fire with a couple of sticks, and after a few failed attempts he successfully turns a spark into a fire. In fact, in one of the key moments in the film he excitedly dances around like a madman, proudly yelling, “Fire! I have made FIRE!”
So what does Tom Hanks and the movie “Castaway” possibly have to do with Rocky Mountain ...
WEST VALLEY CITY ‒ On a night when he hosted a young boy who is battling a rare genetic disorder, veteran racecar driver Jimmy Waters came away with two victories Saturday night at Rocky Mountain Raceways.
Waters asked 9-year-old Travis Carpenter, who suffers from neurofibromatosis type 1, or simply NF1, to be his honorary crew chief for Saturday’s race. Travis, a huge racing fan whose dream is to be a NASCAR crew chief, was only too happy to help Water’s team; and he must’ve been a good luck charm because Waters took the checkered flag in the Shoqwave Late Models competition ...

It was a Schmall world after all.
For three days last weekend, the Young Kia Drag Strip at Rocky Mountain Raceways felt like Andy Schmall’s world and the rest of us were just living in it.
The 27-year-old racer from Idaho Falls, Idaho rode a hot streak as toasty as the later summer weather. Schmall earned the King of the Sendoff award – his second in four years – and cruised away with cash and prizes after winning 17 rounds between Aug. 26-28.
By virtue of all those victories, Schmall took home a package that included cash, Hoosier racing tires, a ...
RIVERTON – On Thursday, Rocky Mountain Raceways had the pleasure of tagging along with the folks from the Salt Lake Parade of Homes, Tailor Built Homes and the Make-A-Wish Foundation as young racing fan Travis Carpenter got to see a bedroom filled with lots of sweet racing stuff donated just for him.
Travis, who recently turned 9, suffers from neurofibromatosis type 1, or simply NF1, a rare genetic disorder. Travis has been dealing with NF1 for most of his life, but with the help of his family -- parents Kelly and Scott and big brothers Nolan and Barrett -- he puts ...
Adding to the excitement of its special 20th anniversary season, Rocky Mountain Raceways will incorporate a new element to the America First Credit Union Super Oval when the season begins next month.
The contest is being called “Track Attack.”
Using their own vehicles, participants will race against the clock as well as against other racing enthusiasts to see who can post the best overall times on the 3/8-mile AFCU Super Oval. Each race night, five cars will run four laps, alone, on the oval. Time will be kept for the four laps combined and the best time will be declared the winner.
