Bryan Warf returned to Rocky Mountain Raceways and the Copper Cup Classic on Saturday, this time winning the prize he seemed destined to win a year ago.

Following Saturday’s Super Modified race, Bryan Warf poses with the Copper Cup trophy along with Rockette and Sydney Tyacke, Miss Utah Nationwide 2016.

Warf, who won a Sprint Car race on the America First Credit Union Super Oval on May 30, dominated the 40-lap Copper Cup race, taking the lead on the first lap and powering his No. 91 Super Modified to the checkered flag without ever getting passed.  He hit a top speed of 106 mph and his best lap on the 3/8 mile oval was a sizzling 12.626 seconds.

In qualifying, Warf set two RMR track records: he hit a top speed of 108.941 mph, and recorded a 12.392 second lap time.

If it seemed like Warf raced like he had something to prove, it’s because he did.

In 2015, the Meridian, Idaho resident fired out in front of the pack just as he did on Saturday.  However, last year’s race had a shocking finish.  Coming around turn one on the final lap, Warf’s motor betrayed him, conking out with the end in sight.  Jim Birgis, who had been trailing Warf on the final lap, cruised in for the victory.

This time Warf would not be denied the big Copper Cup trophy, although it’s a good bet he held his breath as he drove around the final lap.DSC_2663

Luke Johnson finished second, Joey Payne came across in third and Rich Castor Jr. took fourth.

In other action on Saturday, Mel Andrus won the 25-lap University Federal Credit Union Winged Sprint race, hitting a top speed of 99 mph.  Lonnie Adamson finished in second place and Nick Pepe took third.

Stacy Jensen won the 20-lap Crate Sprints race, besting Bob Massie, who took second place, and Don Massie finished third.

In the 20-lap Midget race, Michael Daniels took the checkered flag followed by second-place finisher Jeff Kelley and Chuck Groat, who came across in third place.

The Plum Crazy car won the 10-lap Brandon Park Roofing F-8 Trains race, finishing ahead of Zombie Slayer and Shake, Rattle N Roll.

Up next at RMR is a July 9 Oval Series event that will feature Pro Race Trucks, Maverik Modifieds, Mini Cups, Jr. Stingers and Tucker Towing Double Deckers.

2016 Drug Testing/Alcohol Policy

 

Rocky Mountain Raceways

2016 Drug Testing/Alcohol Policy

What:

Rocky Mountain Raceways will conduct random drug and alcohol tests of both RMR competitors and RMR staff members.  We will test an undetermined number of racers and employees picked at random on race day. All competitors, regardless of class, may be tested.  We have a mobile testing company that will be at our facility.  Racers selected at random will be brought to the main office for testing.  There will be no refunds given for a “failure to report” situation.

Why:

Motorsports involves inherent risk.  I need to make sure that I am providing the safest possible platform for all of you to perform.  If one of you is under the influence of illegal, mind-altering substances while behind the wheel of a racecar, motorcycle, quad, or side-by-side, then I am failing the entire group in providing a safe place to race.  All of you should be at your full faculties when operating your racing apparatus.  It only takes a small slip up by someone not in the correct frame of mind to cause a major incident and thousands of dollars in unnecessary damages, meanwhile risking the safety of the racers, the patrons, and the RMR staff.

Penalty:

Upon a failed substance test, your racing privileges will be immediately suspended for the next 3 events (including that night) for your class.  After the three race suspension, you will need to provide a negative test back to RMR by the same testing company that will perform our tests on site to regain racing eligibility, within 24 hours of the race you wish to compete.  The cost for the follow up testing will be incurred by the driver in violation.  In the event of a failed test, information will be given to the responsible party to make arrangements for further testing.  If alcohol shows positive, you will then be subject to a breathalyzer test.  Anything greater than .000 will result in a one-event suspension, which will be administered day of. WVPD will conduct a private breathalyzer on the next event for that competitor.

Appeal:

If you are found with a positive test, you may appeal by having another test administered on site.  The competitor will pay for the cost of the re-test.  If the test comes back negative, the track will reimburse the cost.  If a race is missed during the process, the track will credit the average class points for the event to the competitors overall points for the season after the driver pays the missed event entry fee. If the second test is positive, the penalty is enforced and the driver must adhere to the testing guidelines.
