CARC  2016  ANNOUNCEMENT

   In January, the CARC Board requested inputs from Modified Coupe car owners about
how the  CARC fits into their racing plans for 2016. Their responses, the uncertainty of
racing at Big Country Speedway, many unknowns about Mod Coupe racing at I-25 Speedway

and a 7- race Mod Coupe schedule at CNS...led to only ONE conclusion
.



THE CARC WILL NOT CONDUCT MODIFIED COUPE RACING IN 2016 .



   While we will not schedule our own races in 2016, the CARC strongly supports the
CNS Mod Coupe races. The CARC website www.modcoupes.com will continue to document
modified coupe racing at CNS with photos and results.
         And who knows what  events early in the 2016 racing season may lead to??


             The Colorado Automobile Racing Club is not Dead!...BUT...
we ask for the involved support of our race fans to determine the future of this club celebrating
its 70th year. This includes being an "ACTIVE"  member of the CARC in 2016.

   We need dedicated members to Lead, Organize and Participate in future club activities.

                                      CARC members it's time to step up!!
                             What will YOU do to keep YOUR club alive??


               PLEASE BE POSITIVE and CONSTRUCTIVE IN YOUR RESPONSE

                         Please respond by March 1st to colokidz@aol.com
                 or to Bob Land  303-781-4067  or Theron Bredeson 303-975-6394


*******************************************************************************************
Current & Future Mod Coupe Owners/Drivers:

The 2016 racing season is nearly here. What are your plans for 2016?  Would you like to participate in a forum
 to  discuss the future course for CARC, HPM, CNS Mod Coupes and Modified Coupes in general.??

First... Some facts about the upcoming season are known and many are still pending.

- CNS has scheduled 7 races.

- I-25 has released a tentative schedule for 2016 ( no mod coupe races  included).
 
 - Big Country 2016 plans are extremely tentative at best. A new track owner & specific future lease rqmts
   make the track's racing future unknown.

  -  $$$remain from the 2015 race fund and could be used to supplement 2016 raceday payouts. 

  - CARC has not initiated similar sponsorship searches for 2016.

So a few simple questions:

- Are positively racing in 2016?

- Is CNS the only track you will race at ?

- Are you even considering racing in 2016?  Why not?

- What facts are influencing your situation?

- What needs to be done to strength the future of Mod Coupes?

- Are you willing to be part of future leadership to chart the future course of Mod Coupes?


YOUR RESPONSE TO THIS LETTER WILL DETERMINE IF WE HAVE A FORUM AND ULTIMATELY TRY
TO RACE AT A VENUE OTHER THAN CNS. THE FUTURE OF MOD COUPES AND SPECIFICALLY CARC IN GENERAL COULD BE IMPACTED.  YOUR INPUT IS CRITICAL..... " CRITICISM" IS OK... BUT HAVE A  POSITIVE SOLUTION! 
 
Please respond by February 14th. Send inputs to colokidz@aol.com.
 
Questions to:  Bob Land 303-781-4067  or Theron Bredeson 303-975-6394




CARC :  "LOOKING TO THE FUTURE"

   The CARC held a lively, well attended meeting at Quaker Steak and Lube on Oct 15.

   After a strongly competitive racing season at Big Country Speedway in 2015, the club (celebrating its 70th year of competitive racing) is looking forward to continuing its partnership with the Lakeside Speedway sister track in Cheyenne. However, some uncertainty on that track's future means keep "all options open".

   While CARC continues to focus on BCS in 2016, they strongly support a companion series at CNS. In 2015, many racers competed at both tracks with success. A small group of dedicated "Mod Coupe" racers plans to meet with CNS officials. The mission of this group is to solidify car rules, schedule and car count requirements for the 2016 season at CNS.

  CARC also hopes to continue to partner with  rival series HPM in competition at BCS and encourage stronger HPM participation  with the Modified Coupes at CNS. Also, new track management at I-25 Speedway may also provide for a CARC return to the Pueblo oval in the future.

   CARC President Bob Land will return in 2016 ...BUT ...is strongly encouraging young leadership to step forward in 2016.

  The CARC 2015 Awards Event is Oct 25/4pm in conjunction with the "Lakeside Remember When Event" at Quaker Steak and Lube.
