Dear RMR racing fan,

A busy couple of weeks here at Rocky Mountain Raceways including what can only be called the hardest we have ever seen it rain here at our facility on the Saturday night of Funny Car Fever.   We all now know what “pink” on the radar means.  It means duck and run.

We start by congratulating current NHRA Heritage Series Funny Car points leader Steven Densham in setting a new track record on June 5th.  His Nostalgia Nitro Funny Car covered 1,320 feet in just 5.843 seconds, besting the old mark held by Dan Horan.  That is getting after it in a hurry.

Dan McCoy followed up his Maverik Modified 100 lap main event win on May 30th with another checker flag run last Saturday.  The Modifieds put on a fantastic show, with just two cautions and 50 laps filled with wheel-to-wheel racing.

Curt Stewart’s Motocross track had more than 300 riders last Friday night with a great crowd to watch!  They have another race coming up Friday night.

This weekend brings one of our favorite events on the season as Horsepower Heaven comes to town!  Both the America First Credit Union and the Young Kia Drag Strip will be in action!  We will have Jets, NITRO, and we close the show with American Daredevil “Mr. Dizzy” performing the always entertaining School Bus Jump!  A full schedule can be found on the front page of the RMR website, rmrracing.com!

I always welcome questions and comments.  My e-mail is: meames@rmrracing.com.

Go fast and be safe,

 

Mike Eames

General Manager
