RMR hires former fire captain Brandon Stone as new Safety and Security Director

WEST VALLEY CITY ‒ Rocky Mountain Raceways has hired former North Davis Fire District captain Brandon Stone as its new Safety and Security Director, General Manager Mike Eames announced Monday.

“We are very happy to have Brandon join our amazing team here at RMR,” Eames said. “Brandon’s lengthy history in fire protection, emergency extraction, and training will be a huge asset to our safety team, which is one of the best in the country.  I know he’s excited to meet all of our talented racers and to learn more about their racing operations.”

Stone worked for the North Davis Fire District for 14 years, beginning in 2001.  Hampered by a torn labrum in his left shoulder in 2014, Stone underwent three surgeries and a partial replacement before retiring from the fire department in 2016.

Stone is a Utah native and a Layton High School graduate.

His experience in fire protection is extensive and specifically includes extrication.  He also was involved as an instructor in firefighter training program at Davis Applied Technology College.

Stone has already begun to settle in with his new responsibilities and is looking forward to the start of the 2017 season, which will officially kick off the first weekend in April.  There is a motocross practice scheduled for April 7, with a race with the Wild West Series slated for April 8 and 9.

A drag test and tune is also planned for April 8 on the Young Kia Drag Strip.

Rocky Mountain Raceways opens Midgets program to 12-13 year olds

Dec. 24, 2016

 

WEST VALLEY CITY – Rocky Mountain Raceways will expand its Midgets racing program for the upcoming 2017 season.  Going forward, the class will be open to 12- and 13-year-olds.

This move comes at the decision of RMR General Manager Mike Eames and Oval Track Manager Dan Beach, but it comes with some specific qualifications:

A. Driver will not be allowed to race in the Midget class until his or her 12th birthday.

B. Driver must have one year experience driving the Jr. Stinger class at RMR, or two years experience driving the RMR Quarter Midget program, or two years experience driving a youth go kart program.

Rule B will be waived if the driver is currently racing a Midget at another facility and proof is provided.

  • Driver must meet with Oval Manager and pass a racing knowledge test in order to apply for a RMR driver membership. 

As we look ahead to the 2017 season, the team at RMR is energized by the thought of yet another season of racing.  We express our gratitude for the support of our racing families and the thousands of fans who enjoy racing as much as we do.
