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.
