These cars started racing in Colorado in 1994. In 1995 there were 4 cars that started the season and raced at Big Country Speedway in Cheyenne WY, Beacon Hill (now I-25 speedway) in Pueblo, and the now defunct Second Creek, a road course that was east of Denver, and Mead, a road course north of Denver. By the end of the season, a fifth car joined them. In 1996 there were approximately 16 cars racing, growing to 20 plus by 1997. We now have 48 racing cars locally.
The Legends Front Range Series (now the Rocky Mountain Legion Racing Association - RMLRA) started racing in 2003 at Colorado National Speedway. Highway 92 joined the ranks in 2005. Congratulations to our past champions, Nick Cooper, (2003), Anthony Medina (2004), Terry Plummer (2005), Chris Eggleston (2006), Terry Plummer (2007), Kyle Clegg (2008 and 2010) and Wayne Barlock (2009). Congratulations to our reigning champion Kyle Clegg. We look forward to a great 2011! Many of these drivers continue racing their legends cars as well as cars in other divisions. Their dedication, as well as all the drivers involved in the series has made the RMLRA a highly respected racing organization.
With financial help over the years from Boulder Door and Mill Work, D & D Metals, Ron and Nancy Soule, and our own “Strawberry King”, the legends cars in this area have raced for increased purses and end-of-year point’s funds. There was a “safety program” to help drivers purchase HANS devices as well as other safety related equipment.
We are fortunate to have Chris Eggleston working with us. He is a master on the legends parts, pieces and setups. Please call if you have any questions or would like information on how to get involved in Legends Racing!
