Racers,

 

I am changing the date for our next RMRRA race at RJ's in Wheatridge, CO.

 

The originally scheduled race on February 19 is being rescheduled to February 26.

 
Doors open at 8 AM.
 
Tech for stock car will open at 10 AM and track power will be turned off at 10:15 until all cars are submitted.
 
Qualifying for stock car will start by 10:45.
 
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 controllers availabe to loan, too.

.

5161 Ward Rd, Suite 6
Wheatridge, CO
(303) 915-5447

Ugh. I have to wait another week to redeem myself. The true character of a man comes out at the worst of times and clearly I failed.

I cherish my slot car friends and strive to do better.

Paul,

 

That's a bummer. I'll be in town for this race and had started prep.

That's great news as a, reportedly, very large drag race was going to happen on the 19th. This will make life easier for Lance and, perhaps, Justin will participate now! And Leslie?


Sorry about the nerf. "Sorry? Sorry? There's no apologizing in slot car racing!" 

Besides, where would I even begin?   I should probably start with my wife ...

 

"I don't often get very many "fast laps" but I very often get many laps quickly." 

 

The only thing I know about slot cars is if I had a good time when I leave the building! I can count the times I didn't on one two three hands!

Would it be alright if I bring a friend with me as well? Would you have 2 controllers and 2 loaner cars for us?

Sounds good Paul, I appreciate it. My friend Tony and I will plan on being at RJ's about the time the track opens. We are both experienced with HO scale slot cars but not the 1/24th scale. Sounds like it should be a lot of fun.

Greetings! I would love to attend this even but, I will not have any cars ready by then. My father and I have ordered the stuff to build a small fleet of cars for RMRRA but it will not arrive in time for this event for "reasons"... 

 

If there was a trio available for rent I would certainly attend this Saturday, if not I will probably stop by and check it out either way, but It's a 4.5 hour drive each way so I would need to convince the wife we needed a Costco run lol

My friend Tony had to cancel for Saturday due to needing to install booths at a restaurant that's about to open. I still plan on making it. So perhaps that would open up some equipment for Ryan here to use? I'm looking forward to meeting you all at RJ's this Saturday.
