Ft. Morgan Colorado (November 30, 2013) -- The Colorado Winter Series will run their 3rd race of the 10 race series this Sunday, December 1. The weatherman has forecast a much better day than the one experienced for the last series race.
Sun and a few passing clouds. High 53F. Winds WNW at 10 to 20 mph. 0% chance of rain.
Much improved over the gale force winds from the race two weeks ago.
An effort has been underway to start a Rocky Mountain Regional GAM Touring Series. This tour is being investigated as a supplement to the local GAM racing at Colorado National Speedway and the I-25 Speedway and will be scheduled as to not interfere with the local scheduled races.
Rules are written and will be attached to this thread. Comments are welcome.
