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.
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.
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.
