We had a great turn out this past Saturday at the US Truck Driving School in Fountain. For those of you were not one of the many 60 drivers here's a brief view of the fun, smooth and decently sized course you missed out on
.

For those of you who haven't heard the next event will be the 2 day long National Challenge at Colorado Off Road Extreme (CORE), in Deer Trail. Currently we are waiting for a few more little things to get taken care of before releasing all of the details. But what I can tell you is that optional Registration/Check in, Tech and Test-N-Tune will take place on Friday starting around 1pm at the upper course. Then we will be getting loads of runs in on the upper course Saturday which will include a provided lunch to the drivers. After the event we'll move everything down to the lower course, head into town for a provided Dinner, and once the sun sets kickback and enjoy a movie projected on the side of the bus before calling it a night and camping out. And for those of you who missed it last year it was easily one of the best movie experiences I've had to date. Then on Sunday racing will resume with about 3 runs before calling good which will be followed by awards that will be provided by the SCCA National Office!

Here are some videos of what to expect from last years event:
Saturdays upper course area:
Sundays lower course area:

Stay tuned for more information in the upcoming weeks!!

Next up on the 2013 Colorado RallyCross schedule is Event #4, the Rocky Mountain National Challenge at Colorado Off Road Extreme (CORE) in spectacular Deer Trail, Colorado. CO R-X will host a field of 60+ rallycross drivers at this two day event Saturday, June 1 and Sunday, June 2. If you can arrive early, registration, check in and test & tune/practice runs will be available Friday afternoon, May 31. Free overnight camping is available Friday and Saturday night. If you’re not the camping type, lodging is available in nearby Limon, Colorado, about 20 minutes away. And don’t miss Saturday’s movie night under the stars.

Cost for the full two-day event, including Saturday dinner and Sunday lunch, is $90. If you aren’t a current SCCA member, a weekend membership will be included in the $90 entry fee. Since this is a National Challenge event, you’ll need two SCCA RallyCross decals (one for each side of the car) and the SCCA RallyCross windshield banner. These are available at the event for the very modest price of $5 and $10, respectively. And they’ll actually increase the value of your car! Also, you’ll need to display your car number and class (e.g. SA, PF, MR, etc.) on both sides of your vehicle. Painter’s tape will suffice, but you really should get some magnetic or vinyl car numbers—easily worth two seconds a lap!

If you’re thinking about competing at Event #4, be sure to pre-register using the Registration tab above. Registration will open soon and we'll pass the word as soon as the link to SCCA's Motorsport.com registration system is open. This is an excellent opportunity to test your driving skills against some of the best rallycrossers in the great plains and mountain west. And if you’ve never been to the SCCA RallyCross National Championship, but are thinking about it, the Rocky Mountain National Challenge will give you a feel for what to expect.

Here’s the tentative event schedule:

Friday May 31st, 2013
Noon - 6:00 PM: Registration and tech.
2:00 PM - 5:00 PM: Practice course open on the upper course (Price to be announced).
Overnight camping allowed.

Pre-Registration for the National Challenge is now open! And while you can pay in advanced, it's not required so you are still able to pay when you arrive onsite.

Time flies when you're having fun. Can't believe we are already half-way through the season as we take to the mixed tarmac and gravel surfaces of PPIR this Saturday July 20th! Stop to check out the full writeup on our website when you head over to pre-register

After some great runs on the mixed dirt & tarmac surfaces of PPIR, it's time to head back into the dust bowl at CORE this Sunday August 11th. Only this time it will consist of new transitions at the upper course! So get registered, put on your hard hat and gloves and lets go exploring!

We would also especially like to thank everyone who stepped and helped in all sorts of ways at the PPIR event! Even if it was only to pack a few items into the bus your added contributions were amazing and a massive relief! If there's any new jobs you'd like to take on just let us know the morning of the events. Granted you can see more of the course while fetching cones all day, but taking on something new is always a fun change and gets you out of the dust storms.

For those of you who've been looking to lay low and under Keith's "Who will win" radar, good work! Now you can get registered and not have to worry about having giant target on your back for the next several weeks.

The 2014 Colorado RallyCross schedule has been posted at ColoradoRallyCross.org. The 2014 schedule will once again feature 12 events, including the Rocky Mountain National Challenge and the SCCA National Championship. The season will kick off with the 2013 Awards Party in February (date & location to be announced soon). Racing gets under way in March with our annual Drivers' School/Test & Tune on March 15 and Event #1 on March 16, both at Colorado Off Road Extreme. Event #4, tentatively scheduled for May 4, may feature a new venue, so watch for more details soon. CO R-X will once again host a National Challenge event at CORE in June and the National Championship event will move from Tulsa to the cornfields of eastern Nebraska in October. I-80 Speedway near Lincoln is closer than Tulsa, so we hope to see a great turnout of CO R-X drivers at the 2104 championship. Gonna be a great season!

The 2013 CO R-X season featured 12 dirt and mud-packed events, including the SCCA National Challenge event at CORE in Deer Trail and the SCCA National Championship in Tulsa. Congratulations to Tim Hardy, the only CO R-X driver to bring home a national champion trophy at the 2013 Tulsa event. In case you haven’t been keeping track, CO R-X drivers (Colorado & Continental Divide Regions) have taken home the most national champion titles (24 out of 85) during the 10 years since the first national championship event in 2005. The competition at the national level is definitely getting better, so we’ll need to step up our game if we want to add to our national championship trophy count in 2014. Congratulations to our 2013 season trophy winners:

Stock 2WD: 1. Drew Little, 2. Gregg Tiedeman, 3. Tim Hardy, 4. Patryk Matecki
Stock AWD: 1. Keith Pizio, 2. Todd Briley, 3. Jake Blevins, 4. Joseph Hanna, 5. Eric Adams, 6. Jason Hahl, 7. George Blevins
Prepared 2WD: 1. Bret Hunter, 2. Mark Smith
Prepared AWD: 1. Max Lawson, 2. Dan Quiet, 3. Keith Lightfoot, 4. Jeff Freedman, 5. Susan Lawson
Modified 2WD: 1. Aaron Miller, 2. Ryan Haenny, 3. Will MacDonald, 4. Dalton Patterson
Modified AWD: 1. Peter Zlamany, 2. Eric Genack, 3. Diego Decastro, 4. Michael Miller, 5. Tim Amerine, 6. Angelica Miller, 7. Ryan Sealey, 8. Cody Melius

Congratulations to our Novice (first season) trophy winners too:

Stock 2WD: 1. Andrea Johnson, 2. Conor Johnson
Stock AWD: 1. George Blevins, 2. Joseph Hanna
Prepared 2WD: 1. Mark Smith, 2. Brian Maytum
Prepared AWD: 1. Shane Fisher
Modified 2WD: 1. Kyle Turner
Modified AWD: 1. Tim Amerine, 2. JK Kendall, 3. Cameron Lee, 4. Mark Fisher

As you prepare for the 2014 season, be sure to check out the newly-released 2014 RallyCross Rules at SCCA.com. There were a few modest rule changes for the new season, including allowing driver’s with learner’s permits to compete, allowing studded snow tires in Stock class at any Regional or Divisional event, even when snow/ice are not present , and allowing alternate steering wheels in Stock class for vehicles not originally equipped with airbags.


And lastly don't miss the 2014 Colorado RallyCross Season Kick-Off & 2013 Season Awards Party! Join us at El Charrito on Saturday, February 15 at 7:00 PM for an evening of food, fun and frolic. Similar to last year's party, there will be a $10 Taco Bar, adult and kiddie beverages from the bar, followed by the the 2013 season awards presentation and a town hall meeting to discuss the 2014 R-X season. Finish the night with a crazy carry... keri, er.... karaoke session on El Charrito's hoppin' dance floor. El Charrito is located at 2100 Larimer Street, Denver, CO 80205 or see https://www.facebook.com/charritobar

We hope that you all had a great winter and your cars are starting to come out of hibernation for the 2014 season is less than 3 weeks away! As with the start of every RallyCross season there will be a “Test-N-Tune/School” day which will be held on Saturday the 15th which is 1 day before the first event of the season on Sunday March 16th. Both events will be held on the proving grounds of CORE. Camping will not be allowed at this event however you may leave your vehicle on site the night of the 15th.

Please check our website for further information of the setup, pricing, and daily schedule of the Test-N-Tune/School day. Registration is currently open for the 1st RallyCross event on our webpage as well. If you are planning on attending the Test-N-Tune/School then please visit our Facebook group event and mark yourself as “going” if you plan on attending as a student and “maybe” if you are just going as a Test-N-Tuner or still haven’t decided. This will help us determine just how many instructors will be needed for the event.

As always thank you all for your continued support and I hope to see you all in the dust clouds this year!

Hello fellow dirt eaters! This weekend will mark the kick off of the 2014 season starting with a Test-N-Tune/School day on Saturday the 15th followed by the first official event of the season on Sunday the 16th. Please check out the event schedule page located on our website for further information and event registration.

Also as with last year we will be continuing the Novice point’s class throughout the year. This means that any driver who is competing in their first RallyCross season will be in the running for season points against other drivers who are competing in their first season. Last year was big success with this new program and helped keep newer drivers interested and competitive all year round. We even had many competing novice drivers earn trophies in the overall season points as well. So it’s a great way to start filling up those trophy shelves.

Hello Dirt fans!
We had a great turn out at both the Test-N-Tune/School with 24 students(!) followed by the first of the season which saw 68 drivers with 20+ being at their 1st every RallyCross event. We are so very thankful and delighted to have gotten to see so many of you come out for the 2 day event.

Our next event is coming up quickly on Saturday April 5th which will be held at the US Truck Driving School in Fountain Colorado. There we will see a far different course surface and terrain then there was at CORE. So be ready for slippery conditions for the first several runs followed by lots of grip as long as you stay on the path. Preregistration is currently open and ready, are you?

The 3rd event does have a all new site for the Colorado RallyCross program. So bear with us as we are currently ironing out all of the paper work before posting it for everyone to see. The date should hopefully still take place on the 4th of May as long as we are able to finish up on all of the paper work. Otherwise it might have to move until Mid May.

Thanks again to all of the new drivers we've been seeing at events. You guys and gals truly are the future of the program. So hope you enjoy.

Many of you have still been eagerly waiting on the information for Even #3. I completely understand that feeling and have been trying to get the new site locked down for the past 5 months while still having CORE ready on standby. I apologize for the long delay and understand that many of you have been trying to plan other things outside of the event as well as how you will be getting here from all parts of the US. So the date is still set for Sunday May 4th and will remain that way regardless.

We are currently waiting for the paper work and insurance forms to trickle their way through the SCCA national office and insurance company before the site information is released, followed by Pre-Registration opening.

Here’s a little heads up on the potential new site; its surface conditions are similar to that that of CORE if it were nicely graded. The site is approximately an hour’s drive 75 miles North from I-70 & I-25 and there is a small town for food & fuel about 10 Miles South of the site. The South end of the site will be reserved for the paddock area, while the West side is where Grid, the start and finish will all take place. So please notice where the other cars are parked as you come in. You might consider bringing a thick sheet of metal or wood with you if you are planning on jacking up your car for tire changes. This is due to some of the paddock area not being packed down and soft. There is a access road which cuts through the property that we cannot park on.

So please hold in there as the waiting game continues and check back at www.ColoradoRallyCross.org during the next week for further information.

Thank you for your patience,
Ryan Sealey
Series Chairman
Colorado RallyCross

After months of heavy lifting, licking envelopes, cutting through red tape and drinking lots of Protein shakes, we are finally able and proud to announce Colorado RallyCross’s newest dirt house in over 6 years! The site will host Event #3 of the 2014 schedule which is on Sunday May 4th and has been provided to us by RockyMountainAutosports.com.

The site is located at 5550 County Road 82 in Carr Colorado, which is on the Northwest corner of I25 off of the Buckeye Rd exit. This puts the site is approximately 75 miles North from I-70 & I-25 which would take about an hour drive to reach it. The town of Wellington is about 10 Miles South of the site where you can find food and fuel. There will not be any onsite food venders for this event, however there will be portalet on site for most of your restroom needs

The surface conditions are similar to that that of CORE when it has been nicely graded. The South end of the site will be reserved as the paddock area, while the West side is where Grid, start and finish will all take place. So please notice where the other cars are parked as you come in. You might also consider bringing a thick sheet of metal or wood to go under your jack if you are planning changing tires tire onsite. This is due to some of the paddock area being soft and not packed down. Because this area has not been proven for use of having several hundred runs over it, there might be the occasional course correction and logistic changes. So we ask that you please hang in there with us and help us with setting up and getting to where you need to be on time so that the day can go as smooth as possible.

There is an access road which you will enter into the property on and then continues to cut through, do not park on it. There are also many other roads that continue North of where the RallyCross event will be held. You may not enter onto these roads any time during the event, for they are strictly off limits and used by RMA as their safety equipment testing area. Seriously, if you are seen on them you’ll be asked to leave. Please also remember this is private property which has been loaned to us by its owner for our enjoyment, so please treat it and them with respect by cleaning up after yourself and packing out whatever you’ve packed in.

And as always, Pre-Registration is currently open. So save yourself and everyone else’s time the morning of the event and get the pesky paper work filled out now… why are you doing still reading this, get to it and see you all in a week!

Get your Rocky Mountain high and join top SCCA RallyCross drivers from Colorado, Utah, Texas, Wyoming, Nebraska, Kansas, and Oklahoma for the 2014 Rocky Mountain National Challenge the weekend of June 7-8. This year’s event will once again take place at Colorado Off Road Extreme (CORE) near historic Deer Trail, Colorado, home of the world’s first rodeo in 1869. CORE is located on the high plains of Eastern Colorado, in the shadow of Pikes Peak. More than sixty competitors are expected to spin their wheels on the fast, hard-packed dusty trails at CORE. And with multiple past National Champions attending, the Rocky Mountain Challenge is sure to offer great competition and plenty of dirty fun. To keep the “challenge” in the National Challenge, organizers will set up multiple courses on CORE’s 800-acre dirt playground paradise. The thin air of CORE’s 5,200-feet elevation will place a premium on driving skill over raw horsepower. A “test & tune” practice course will be available to competitors who arrive Friday afternoon. The event schedule on Saturday will start with morning runs, a mid-day break for lunch on site, then afternoon runs, followed by a mouth-watering supper at the Brown Derby Restaurant & Saloon in Deer Trail, then back to CORE for movie night. Rise and shine with the deer and antelope on Sunday for a delicious breakfast burrito followed by competition runs in the morning and the trophy presentation in early afternoon. Free camping is available on site or stay at one of the many inexpensive hotels in nearby Limon, Colorado.

Registration Fee- $90 This fee includes lunch for Saturday and Sunday. It does not include Friday practice runs or Saturday night dinner. Registration and event registration can be found through the SCCA RallyCross Website

Payment must be made on site Friday night or between 7:30am and 8 am Saturday. Please visit ColoradoRallyCross.org or the SCCA RallyCross Website for further information.

This event is open only to SCCA annual membership

FEW! Now that the 2 days of the National challenge is behind us it's time to wash up those cars and bring them back out to CORE for the 5th installment of the Colorado RallyCross 2014 season on July 5th. Hopefully the lower track will be dried up to party on for a nice change in pace. Registration is currently open so get your eye glasses out and puzzle solving skills ready to the solve the usual mystery question which is there for everyone's protection to make sure Peter still isn't an android.

Results from the National challenge can be found on the SCCA website as well as on ColoradoRallyCross.org. A big thank goes to everyone who helped make the National Challenge event happen, especially Tommy and Eric Genack for coming out to help with logistics and registration despite the fact that they DIDN'T even race! Haenny for all of his continued help while hobbling around and keeping everyone's times in check. Eric Adams, Keith Lightfoot and Peter for keeping the muddy mess of a track together. Eric Adams, Dan and Jake for spending their Saturday night setting up Sunday's course in complete darkness, I still have a good laugh when recalling the evening after Jake running over to the bus for more cones. A big thank you towards Angel and Michael Miller for meeting up with me to take the bus out and back, without you 2 it would have been a long weekend of sitting around and no racing for me. Lastly and most importantly Gonzalo San Miguel, Shane Erisoty, Robert Pendergest, Robert Seelig and of course George Blevins for making the long trips out to Colorado to come keep us in check. Unfortunately CORE wasn't in it's usual grand conditions for everyone, but as we all know sometimes you just have to deal with the hand dealt, press on and fire the weather guy.

Lastly, as some of you may have heard the Bus will be needing a new home in the coming months. Tommy has been generous enough to keep it at his house and bring it out and back over these last 3 years, however he will soon be moving to an area where it can't go. So if anyone knows of a place that it can be stored between events please let us know, it does need a source of power due to an unknown drain on the batteries as well as for the block heater which helps prevent it taking a solid hour of trying to start it on cold mornings. IF you are willing to keep it at your own place and drag it out to events we would be forever in your debt, while we currently don't have a trailer to haul your vehicle with the fuel used for the bus is paid for by us.

How hard on the cars is the CORE course? Are people having any issues with lower than stock vehicles?

Typically CORE and PPIR can be a little more rough on cars that are lowered than the Truck Driving school is. This is because ruts/bumps can develop throughout the day. With my RallyCross suspension on the car does sit about 2" lower and does occasionally hit some stuff. But personally I'm not worried about it in my car because it, like all cars should, has a real skid plate. The Truck Driving school doesn't rut up at all, so if you are nervous/unsure you might try there 1st.
