After months of heavy lifting, licking envelopes, cutting through red tape and drinking lots of Protein shakes, we are finally able and proud to announce Colorado RallyCross’s newest dirt house in over 6 years! The site will host Event #3 of the 2014 schedule which is on Sunday May 4th and has been provided to us by RockyMountainAutosports.com.

The site is located at 5550 County Road 82 in Carr Colorado, which is on the Northwest corner of I25 off of the Buckeye Rd exit. This puts the site is approximately 75 miles North from I-70 & I-25 which would take about an hour drive to reach it. The town of Wellington is about 10 Miles South of the site where you can find food and fuel. There will not be any onsite food venders for this event, however there will be portalet on site for most of your restroom needs

The surface conditions are similar to that that of CORE when it has been nicely graded. The South end of the site will be reserved as the paddock area, while the West side is where Grid, start and finish will all take place. So please notice where the other cars are parked as you come in. You might also consider bringing a thick sheet of metal or wood to go under your jack if you are planning changing tires tire onsite. This is due to some of the paddock area being soft and not packed down. Because this area has not been proven for use of having several hundred runs over it, there might be the occasional course correction and logistic changes. So we ask that you please hang in there with us and help us with setting up and getting to where you need to be on time so that the day can go as smooth as possible.

There is an access road which you will enter into the property on and then continues to cut through, do not park on it. There are also many other roads that continue North of where the RallyCross event will be held. You may not enter onto these roads any time during the event, for they are strictly off limits and used by RMA as their safety equipment testing area. Seriously, if you are seen on them you’ll be asked to leave. Please also remember this is private property which has been loaned to us by its owner for our enjoyment, so please treat it and them with respect by cleaning up after yourself and packing out whatever you’ve packed in.

And as always, Pre-Registration is currently open. So save yourself and everyone else’s time the morning of the event and get the pesky paper work filled out now… why are you doing still reading this, get to it and see you all in a week!

Get your Rocky Mountain high and join top SCCA RallyCross drivers from Colorado, Utah, Texas, Wyoming, Nebraska, Kansas, and Oklahoma for the 2014 Rocky Mountain National Challenge the weekend of June 7-8. This year’s event will once again take place at Colorado Off Road Extreme (CORE) near historic Deer Trail, Colorado, home of the world’s first rodeo in 1869. CORE is located on the high plains of Eastern Colorado, in the shadow of Pikes Peak. More than sixty competitors are expected to spin their wheels on the fast, hard-packed dusty trails at CORE. And with multiple past National Champions attending, the Rocky Mountain Challenge is sure to offer great competition and plenty of dirty fun. To keep the “challenge” in the National Challenge, organizers will set up multiple courses on CORE’s 800-acre dirt playground paradise. The thin air of CORE’s 5,200-feet elevation will place a premium on driving skill over raw horsepower. A “test & tune” practice course will be available to competitors who arrive Friday afternoon. The event schedule on Saturday will start with morning runs, a mid-day break for lunch on site, then afternoon runs, followed by a mouth-watering supper at the Brown Derby Restaurant & Saloon in Deer Trail, then back to CORE for movie night. Rise and shine with the deer and antelope on Sunday for a delicious breakfast burrito followed by competition runs in the morning and the trophy presentation in early afternoon. Free camping is available on site or stay at one of the many inexpensive hotels in nearby Limon, Colorado.

Registration Fee- $90 This fee includes lunch for Saturday and Sunday. It does not include Friday practice runs or Saturday night dinner. Registration and event registration can be found through the SCCA RallyCross Website

Payment must be made on site Friday night or between 7:30am and 8 am Saturday. Please visit ColoradoRallyCross.org or the SCCA RallyCross Website for further information.

This event is open only to SCCA annual membership

FEW! Now that the 2 days of the National challenge is behind us it's time to wash up those cars and bring them back out to CORE for the 5th installment of the Colorado RallyCross 2014 season on July 5th. Hopefully the lower track will be dried up to party on for a nice change in pace. Registration is currently open so get your eye glasses out and puzzle solving skills ready to the solve the usual mystery question which is there for everyone's protection to make sure Peter still isn't an android.

Results from the National challenge can be found on the SCCA website as well as on ColoradoRallyCross.org. A big thank goes to everyone who helped make the National Challenge event happen, especially Tommy and Eric Genack for coming out to help with logistics and registration despite the fact that they DIDN'T even race! Haenny for all of his continued help while hobbling around and keeping everyone's times in check. Eric Adams, Keith Lightfoot and Peter for keeping the muddy mess of a track together. Eric Adams, Dan and Jake for spending their Saturday night setting up Sunday's course in complete darkness, I still have a good laugh when recalling the evening after Jake running over to the bus for more cones. A big thank you towards Angel and Michael Miller for meeting up with me to take the bus out and back, without you 2 it would have been a long weekend of sitting around and no racing for me. Lastly and most importantly Gonzalo San Miguel, Shane Erisoty, Robert Pendergest, Robert Seelig and of course George Blevins for making the long trips out to Colorado to come keep us in check. Unfortunately CORE wasn't in it's usual grand conditions for everyone, but as we all know sometimes you just have to deal with the hand dealt, press on and fire the weather guy.

Lastly, as some of you may have heard the Bus will be needing a new home in the coming months. Tommy has been generous enough to keep it at his house and bring it out and back over these last 3 years, however he will soon be moving to an area where it can't go. So if anyone knows of a place that it can be stored between events please let us know, it does need a source of power due to an unknown drain on the batteries as well as for the block heater which helps prevent it taking a solid hour of trying to start it on cold mornings. IF you are willing to keep it at your own place and drag it out to events we would be forever in your debt, while we currently don't have a trailer to haul your vehicle with the fuel used for the bus is paid for by us.

Hey guys and gals,
As you all know this Sunday will be the 6th event on the Colorado RallyCross’s 2014 schedule and will be held at PPIR. Pre-Registration is still currently open from now until Thursday night and as always you can still register at the event.

What you don’t know is that KBPI’s Willie B rented out PPIR this past week to host a last minute drag race on the infield. Apparently last time he did this it was at High Plains where hundreds of spectators showed up and they had to start turning people away. So what this means for us is that our entry to PPIR, Paddock, grid and Tarmac sections will be different then what we are normally used to.

Here's pretty much the way the layout will be, but it might change a little on the morning of based onsite conditions. Instead of entering at the gate and signing their weaver we will be following the magenta line on the map below along the East side of PPIR, you will not have to sign their waiver but everyone will still need to sign ours at our registration table where we will be setup on the Northwest side of the track. We will then paddock in area shown in green along Northwest triangle area and/or along the road, if you do use the road to paddock please park so that traffic can get through. The reason we will be over there is because our normal Paddock area will be open to those attending the drag races and I don't want those random people walking around where our stuff will be all day while we are on course with no one down there to prevent them from potentially messing with our stuff. The reason I'm picking the Northern area instead of using the tarmac parking lot is so that if anyone in our group needs to leave during the day they can easily do so without being near the course area.

Now as for the course, I show the old West side that's been used in the past but only because if it’s suitable it could used. For those of you who don’t know, that area was where we used to hold our events at PPIR but we usually stay out of there now because it's too soft and causes issues. I foresee the paddock, grid, start and finish all being in the upper north area and the tarmac section being in the middle or end/start of our course. We now have enough cable for the timing system these days to be able to park the bus on the North side and then run cable all the way down to the other end if need be. The tarmac area will be blocked off with cones to prevent people from the other event parking/entering our area. So for those of you will be working corners over there will need to keep an eye on people and keep them from crossing over.

The restrooms that we usually have access to will still be open for us and Short Stop will be onsite and open around 7am for breakfast and will remain onsite for lunch.

If you have any further questions don’t hesitate to ask. Hopefully the change in the venue setup will provide us with something new and entertaining for the event.

See you all there soon!
