Rocky Mountain Throwdown II?

Carl set up a deal in Pueblo in mid August for us west coast guys to attend for some racing and goofing off. It was a blast to meet some guys from this forum and many of the local guys there. It was piggybacked with a Ford vs Mopar event, and there were a lot of good looking/running cars there to enjoy. I made a judgement call to buy some parts for my car instead of getting it there to race, and even though I went, I have a feeling racing slower would have been just as much fun. I am going next year with my car, and would like to encourage others to seriously consider making plans to attend also.

The track and people running it were way cool... everyone was a gracious host. The racers were just as happy to stop whatever they were in the middle of to chat about their cars or whatever topic one could bring up. Carl set up a BBQ with the folks running the track on Saturday night, and it didn't take long to make friends while having a burger or a cold beverage of choice.

I know there are a bunch of us that can't make it to east side events (The BBF Bash) due to drive time or cash flow issues, but this is a good deal closer for us west coast/mid west/canadian guys. If we can get some more guys to commit to going, I am sure we can get some convoys set up so we aren't all driving alone. Motels are within minutes of the track, although, I am hoping to spend 1 night at the track hanging out with some of those local racers having some fun.

Let's motivate Carl to get us some dates for a race weekend next year when Pueblo Motorsports Complex makes a race schedule. ZephyrBob and I have already challenged Carl to a weekend of racing in his Montego. I am not gonna talk any smack to Carl until my heads arrive safely.

Thanks for your time...

Tom

Bandimere is 3 miles away from me. Hard to beat the short drive to a better track and larger car count.

Quite honestly... this is an attempt of working towards a larger car count. I can't imagine having an event like this within 3 miles of home, but I can't argue that it would be nice.

Since towing/travel time to "The Bash" would likely burn a weeks vacation for me, traveling by myself, I enjoyed having an event this far west. Since many of us won't likely be able to make trips back east for other events, it would be nice to meet more of the guys from this forum that are able to make a trip on this side of the States. I hope that there is some serious interest in having something like this that is within a few hundred miles of home, and we can place some more names with faces.

After reading my reply it sounded like Im bashing Pueblo, Im not. For normal Fri., Sat. racing its hard to beat a 3 mile drive.

If I had a better tow vehicle I would have gone to Carls race. It sounded like a great time. Hopefully next year he'll do it again and I have a way to get there.

Bob... hope you are getting your pit bike together. You gonna be able to hang it on your bumper to Colorado?

Carl... Rumor has it that e85 is now at the pump near where I work, and they are breaking ground on a new 1/8th mile track close to home. You haven't lost your marker yet I hope?

Get busy guys, it's just around the corner.

No date nailed down yet guys. Looks like the city still hasn't decided who is going to manage the track this year. The company that handled it last year seems confidant that they'll get the contract, but nothing has been finalized yet. Hopefully we can get a date set soon.
