RMRRA racing will be traveling to Ace's Place in Casper, Wyoming on October 9, 2021

 

Ace's Place houses a club track, an American Orange. This is also a residence so we will have a tight schedule. Racing will start by 11:30 AM and will be complete before 7:00 PM. You will need to bring tires, gears, and whatever parts you deem necessary, there will be no parts available to purchase. We will try to get Stock Car, F1 and Can Am races in before the 7:00 PM curfew.

 

You will qualify in a reverse order of your car being submitted to tech. First car submitted will be the last car to qualify and vice versa.
F1 and Can-Am to follow Stock Car.
 

If you need a loaner, let me know and I will see that you get a loaner to race. I have Difalco Controllers to loan too.

 

More information to follow.

Gentlemen,
 
We will be racing at Ace's Place in Casper on October 9th. The American Orange track is housed in the upstairs at Ace's. Since the building is also their residence, please be respectful while we are there. There will not be any parts or tires for purchase, so you will need to bring them with you. Also, as many of you know, Ace's is in a rural setting so there isn't anything convenient for food and beverage. You will need to provide your own lunch and refreshments. We have a fixed stop for 7:00 PM, so we will start racing as early as possible. If you can arrive by 10:00 we can have about an hour to practice before we start with RMRRA Stock Cars. Please be ready for tech when it opens and help keep things moving along during the day.
 

We will be running all three classes, Stockers, F1 and Can Am.

 

Everyone is welcome, including you Washington, Idaho, Montana, Kansas, and Utah guys!

Need directions or other questions answered, just email or  PM me or a PM to "B.C.", our Wyoming race host (Brian Bays.)

 

From Brian"s post a few years ago:

 

"directions to track, I would guess most racers would be coming by I-25. take exit 188b, turn back under the bridge. you will be on poplar street/hiway 220 west. go approximately 1.7 miles to c y avenue-turn right and go approximately 18.3 miles to hiway 487, turn left, go .2 miles to Aces place. large letters on side of building will be easy to see. There are 5 hotels by the I-25 exit. plenty more along I-25 from the hat six exit all the way to exit 188b."

Rocky Mountain Retro Racing traveled to Ace's Place  just south of Casper, Wyoming for our October race. With a light turnout and a fixed stop time, we raced on the middle six lanes. This helped move things along and gave us enough turn marshals for the day. The original American Orange was recently re-braided and in great shape, thanks to track owner Carlo Zambai.

 

 In Stock Car qualifying, BC (Brian Bays) led the way with a fast lap of 4.24.  Alan Wilkinson was second fast with a 4.32 and Carlo third at 4.35.

The race was a real challenge for the stock cars, as the hump in main straight de-slotted many of the stockers and sent them flying over the bank. Alan managed to keep his stock car in the slot enough to take the win over BC, with Paulie Frazier taking third.

In F1 qualifying, Johnny Barvik set the pace with a 3.97 lap with BC and Carlo rounding out the top 3.

During the race, the lighter F1s also struggled with negotiating the hump in the main straight. BC led the way again with Justin Kill in second place and Carlo in third.

The Can Am cars were better suited to the track and it showed in qualifying and during the race. BC again took the TQ spot with a 3.92 lap followed by A J Hoyt and Paulie Frazier, both at 3.96.

 

BC took the win, with A j in second and Justin in third.

thank you paul for the report and pictures. i want to thank those that traveled the roughly 300 miles one way

 

to race on the american orange we have in casper. i erred in not realizing until carlo informed me that the sign

 

showing aces place had been taken down. sorry to justin and johnny for their extra sight seeing adventure in

 

trying to locate the building. cell phone service isnt the best out in the country. special thanks to carlo and james 

 

for installing new braid on the whole track. the track was imo in excellent shape. the bumps in the straight are how

 

it was built in the mid 1960's. the bumps, the ess, the tighter banking, the narrow lane spacing, and the donut that is 

 

in the opposite direction from what king tracks have all add up to a fun but challenging track to run on. please include

 

us in the spring on the schedule, if not before. weather this time of year is hit or miss until march, but not impossible.
