How much for towing $ for you to come to "4 races for free"

Recommended Posts

RMR drivers this is not for you .

 

I need a few more cars to come race with the RMR on July 18th. We want 40 cars to race in front of over 8000 fans. We will be paid quite well but to get the big bucks we need a few more cars. So...

 

we have a NASA RM event on July 11th and 12th . The 11th is a double race first event at Pueblo road course second event is at I-25 speedway.

Then we race on July 18th for the big show at PPIR .

 

I will cover all entry fees ! I will PAY YOU to TOW out to Colorado . My Question is ....

 

How much will it cost me to get you to come race with the RMR ? If I had 8 or 9 cars from one region you could combine your travel $ and hire a transporter .

 

Thanks for considering this offer.

Chuck,

If I calcuate the distance from Phx to Pueblo it is around 800 miles. For a tow vehicle at 10 MPG (what I get with 8.0 V10 towing an open trailer and an easy foot) and 2.0 gallon I get 160 each way.

 

So $320 in gas total to Pueblo. Drive time is 11-12 hrs without stops.

So, what is this big race deal? It sounds interesting.

 

Chuck, I would be up for coming from So. Cal. I have a trailer that can hold a second car to help lower the cost for the tow. The Mothership gets about 5-6 mpg of diesel fuel and I am about 250 miles farther than Joe.

 

Any one in So. Cal. or Arizona that wants to go with me?

 

Chuck, let me know ASAP if you want me to come with two cars. I am sure someone here will want to go with me.

Chuck, I'd love to come, but the 18th we made big plans for our regional race - Charity event, Porsche as featured mark, etc, and I committed to a charity bike ride the weekend before .

 

Good luck, sounds cool!

Don't listen to Chuck. He is full of it, but still somewhat being truthful. The promoter is aiming for 12,000+ race fans.

Find me a 944 and I'll race it

 

I'll talk to Mitch about the 24 car's availability....

 

Cool! It'll be an interesting switch.

Is the "money" race a roundy-round race at PPIR (1 mile D-oval)? If so, how long is the race and are there any heats/qualifiers?

 

I'm confused about the "second event at I-25 speedway." The race at Pueblo, fun track, is only on Saturday?

The second event on July 11th is a "roundy round" on the "Fastest 1/4 mile EVER"

 

The event in front of "12,000" fans is PPIR Road course ! There is a heat / qualifer then a main race event ! About the same amount of track time as a normal NASA day.

 

and Yes I am full of 944-SPEC !

 

We Dave B. and I are working on adding to the over $6,000 in prize money .

 

Ian don't count on Mitches car ... He should have his race license by then

Sounds like a great event and I have heard from several AZ guys already that are very interested and would like some details. Some of the questions are:

 

1. Have you decided on the number of laps or length of time for the main event?

 

2. Is the main event going to be daytime or nighttime?

 

2. Are the heat/qualifiers going to determine position in the main event by time or finishing position?

 

4.. How much practice time will there be for the out of town entries to learn the track?

We are getting $10 T/T days leading up to the event. So the schedule for race day is shorter. One warm up / qual session then main race . I would guess 20 minutes and 35 minutes for the race. The track is SIMPLE . easy to learn. Also RMR loves inverted starts ... Our race will be late in the day light. The big track time days will be the weekend before with 3 races in 2 days. Pueblo is a great track .

BTW, it's now $8150 in prize $$$ at PPIR. That splits real nice among 34 944s.

 

 

 

 

It read kind fuzzy to me, but here is what we have planned for the week:

 

July 11-12th - This is a regular NASA weekend at Pueblo Motorsports Park. Normal Practice/Qual/Race/Race/Warmup/Race/Race format (Did I mention you race a lot?!?!). As with the past years, NASARM will be setting a special discount price (TBD) for 944Spec competitors for this weekend.

 

On Saturday afternoon/evening the 11th, all of the interested 944s will go back up the highway about 10 miles and put on an 80% race at I25 Speedway. This is where we plan to do our evening NASA BBQ. This means the stand will be filled with not just all the normal local circle track fans (who BTW, go nuts over our 944s), but also all of your NASA buddies.

 

The following weekend, on Saturday July 18th - The 944s will be racing in front of the huge crowd at PPIR. This is a 1.3 mile roval w/infield. Easy to learn, it took me about a dozen laps to put my SM up with the front runners when I first raced there. For out of towners, we can schedule some additional practice time during the week if you really need it.

 

Sunday July 19th - If you STILL haven't had enough motorsports, this will be the 87th running of the Pikes Peak Hillclimb. How many times have you watched it on TV and said - "One day I will go watch that live..." or "One day I am going to do that....". This is your chance. If you want to work it or compete, let me know and I'll get you the info.

 

 

How is that for a CO vacation? Oh and if you bring the family, there is lots to do and see here: Seven Falls, Cave of the Winds, Cheyenne Mt. Zoo (one of the best IMHO), Pikes Peak, National Forests, Rafting, Fishing, Scenic Trains, Horseback Riding, Royal Gorge. This is just CO Springs. We've got other destinations CO towns like Breckenridge, Aspen, Steamboat, Glenwood Canyon, etc.

 

http://www.colorado.com Do I sound like a salesperson for the tourism board yet?

 

 

BTW, if you need somewhere to stay we've got a great deal with the Crowne Plaza in CO Springs. Also, I heard C.J. Bott's pad is the bomb!!! If you need to stash your car and trailer, we will have that covered as well.

Bring it on guys! Consider it a prep race for Nationals. All of the RMR drivers that you will be chasing at Nationals will be there with lots of fans watching!

This going to be SO MUCH FUN !

 

How's the car count looking ??

 

I think it would be a blast to do the Pikes Peak hill climb, but the spectators would probably die of old age watching us go up to the summit. Maybe we could do like the bikes and run as a group...

Ok you wanted more track time ... Friday (17th) is now a T/T day ! over 2 hours of track time planned. ! Saturday I also added 1 more session !

 

THERE IS ALSO A STRONG CHANCE THAT ON THE 18TH WE WILL HAVE A GUEST DRIVER WHO WILL BE DRIVING MY CAR OR THE 913#. This driver will be of NASCAR fame and help us with sponsorship ! This is going to be AWESOME !

 

Chuck, you are the man

too bad i dont have my lic. yet! I would tow out for that.

 

Good luck!

 

We would need to talk about that ... This event is not running under NASA insurance and we have 2 comp school instructors.

 

Still no word on who the NASCAR stars will be and if one will be driving the #67 car.

Ken Schrader? He'll drive anything!!!

 

And to think, I was going to scam Eric out of his car till I saw the date....

 

Hey wait, since I am the Race Director, I can dictate lots of things. Say, like RELOCATION of our ACC event to Colorado?
