WEST VALLEY CITY – The Idaho-based Intermountain Outlaw Modified Series will invade Rocky Mountain Raceways this Saturday, bringing with it lots of horsepower, and of course, a need for speed.
On the heels of last weekend’s popular Lucas Oil Modified Series race – which came down to one of the craziest finishes in RMR history – the IOM Series will be looking to keep the excitement alive on RMR’s America First Credit Union Super Oval. The traveling IOM Series features bigger engines like the Lucas Oil Modifides, but with slightly different tires.
Running with the Outlaw Series group will be RMR’s regular Maverik Modified drivers, bringing the expected number of racers to between 25 and 30.
Rick Fowble is the series point leader followed by Jentry Pisca and Neal Latham. Among the IOM’s notable drivers is Meridian, Idaho-based Shelby Stroebel, a regular in the Lucas Modified tour and his daughter, Caitlin, 19, a Boise State University sophomore. Caitlin made her Lucas debut last weekend at RMR, finishing third in the B Main race. Shelby, who won the 2014 Lucas Series race at RMR, finished 19th in the A Main race last weekend.
Reigning Maverik Modified champion Mark Ith Jr., is currently RMR’s 2015 Modified-class point leader. Lynn Hardy, who finished fourth in last weekend’s event, ranks No. 2 in points this season. Both are expected to race this weekend.
In addition to the IOM Series, the America First Credit Union Super Oval will run Redbone Trucking Super Stocks, Pro 4s, You Burn Em We Build Em Mini Cups, Tucker Towing Double Deckers and Jr. Stingers.
On Friday, July 31, the Young Kia Drag Strip will host Jr. Dragster, Jr. Street and ATV races followed by the Armor Powder Coatings Midnight Drags, running from 9 p.m. until midnight.
Looking ahead, RMR will have Summit ET drag racing on Aug. 7 followed by two days of Maverik Clash of the Titans Monster Truck competition. The event will feature wheelie and freestyle contests as well as Legend Regional qualifying and Super Moto racing.
