Hot racing action planned this weekend at Rocky Mountain Raceways

As the month of July heats up in and around the Salt Lake valley, Rocky Mountain Raceways continues its efforts to heat up its three racing venues.

With a week still remaining before Horsepower Heaven fires up, RMR hasn’t cooled off. There is a strong schedule in place for July 15 and 16.

Summit ET drag racing is set for Friday, July 15.

Summit ET drag racing is set for Friday, July 15 on the Young Kia Drag Strip.

The spotlighted event will take place on Saturday, when the America First Credit Union Super Oval rumbles to life with RMR Oval Racing Series action. The racing that day will feature Shoq Wave Late Models as well as the University Federal Credit Union Sprint Cars, Midgets, Sommers Auto Wrecking Hornets and the Brandon Park Roofing Figure-8 Trains.

Gates open at 4 PM., qualifying starts at 5, heat races will go off at 6 and the features will get going at approximately 7:30.

On Friday, the Young Kia Drag Strip will be the site for Summit ET racing, with the added attraction of Fastlane Machine Top Sportsman and Performance Place Top Dragsters.

The Shoq Wave Late Models will be in Action on the America First Credit Union Super Oval this Saturday, July 16.

There will also be an open practice on the MX track and Quarter Midget racing on the oval scheduled for Friday night. Jr. Dragster Racing Series action will get underway Saturday morning beginning at 9 AM

Looking ahead, one of RMR’s biggest events of the season, Horsepower Heaven, will take place on July 23. The event will feature racing on both the AFCU Super Oval and the Young Kia Drag Strip, plus post-race fireworks.

RMR will light up July with fireworks, Jet Cars and Lucas Oil Modifieds

We’ll ask the question, even though we already know the answer.

Do you like firewCRD_6751orks?

Of course you do.

Us, too.

In fact, at Rocky Mountain Raceways, the only thing we like better than racing is fireworks AND racing.

Come to think of it, the only things better than racing and fireworks, are MORE racing and MORE fireworks. If you feel the same way, you’ll want to check out what we’ve got coming up in July.

We’ll celebrate Independence Day as well as Pioneer Day with fast cars, fireworks, and of course, fun.

It’ll fire up on July 2 with the Copper Cup Classic on the America First Credit Union Super Oval. That means a bunch of ferocious-sounding Super Modifieds, plus Sprint Cars, Midgets and the always-exciting Brandon Park Roofing F-8 Trains.

And when the racing ends, the fireworks show will begin.

Later on in the month, we’ve got more of the same planned.CRD_7224

July 22 on the motocross track, it’s time for the high-flying show known as Pioneer Extravaganza. There will be a ton of super-cool dirt bikes and lots of high-pitched awesomeness followed by – you guessed it – another fabulous fireworks show.

On the 23rd, we’ll light up the night with one of biggest, baddest and loudest events we’ve ever had: Horsepower Heaven.

Most seasons, HPH is a pretty awesome show with ground-pounding action on both the AFCU Super Oval as well as the Young Kia Drag Strip. This year, because it’s our 20th anniversary, we’re making it even more special.

How special? We’re talking 20 Jet Cars on the drag strip and the Lucas Oil Modifieds on the oval, that’s in addition CRD_6745to Fastlane Machine Top Sportsman and Performance Place Top Dragster racing, plus K1 Speed Super Stocks.

And of course, if all that horsepower weren’t enough, we’ve also got another fireworks show on the schedule.

So, to recap, we’re celebrating the month of July with three fireworks shows, 20 Jet Cars, Lucas Oil Modifieds, a bunch of dirt bikes and lots, lots more.

Like we always say, the only thing better than racing, is racing AND fireworks. And the only thing better than racing and fireworks, is MORE OF BOTH!

If you’re looking for something fun to do next month, come visit Rocky Mountain Raceways, where we rev up the fun!

2016 Drug Testing/Alcohol Policy


Rocky Mountain Raceways

2016 Drug Testing/Alcohol Policy


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.


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.


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.


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.
