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 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.
