Oval Racing Series rumbles on this weekend at Rocky Mountain Raceways

Oval schedule for May 14WEST VALLEY CITY ‒ After its 2016 season opener was rained out last weekend, Rocky Mountain Raceways will look to fire up even more action this Friday and Saturday with racing planned for all three of its tracks.

The feature event of the weekend will take place Saturday on the America First Credit Union Super Oval with an Oval Racing Series event. That’s when RMR will debut its new Shoqwave Late Model racing class. In addition, University Federal Credit Union Sprint Cars will be in action along with Midgets, Sommers Auto Wrecking Hornets and the always-exciting Brandon Park Roofing Figure 8 Trains.

Gates will open at 4 p.m. Saturday, followed by qualifying at 5 p.m., heat races at 6 p.m. and then it’s on to the main events, which are slated to begin at approximately 7 p.m.

On Friday, RMR will kick off its drag racing season with a Summit ET Series event on the Young Kia Drag Strip. Gates will open at 2:30 p.m., with racers slated to be on the track at 4:30 p.m.

Also on Friday, RMR’s newly remodeled motocross track will roar to life for its second MX race of the season.

Gates for that event will open at 3 p.m., with riders on the track at 5 p.m. The racing will begin at 6:15 p.m.

As if that schedule isn’t busy enough, there are also three youth events in store this week;  

Beginning Thursday at 5 p.m. there is an Edge Powersports Mini MX Series race on the Motocross Track then on Friday at 7 p.m. there will be a Quarter Midget race on the America First Credit Union Super Oval.
