About this event

RMVR Returns To La Junta, AGAIN

After a ten-year absence on the schedule, RMVR returned to LaJunta in 2019.  Even though it was a late season decision, over 60 people entered and had a great time.  RMVR is pleased to announce the "Return to La Junta, AGAIN" race weekend for 2020.    It's scheduled for October 10-11 at the upgraded airport track. With fresh surface sealing, improved amenities, and a willing attitude, La Junta is drawing positive comments from racers around the globe. Well, at least around Colorado.

As usual, Saturday & Sunday, Worker Rides during lunch break, an opportunity for RMVR drivers to provide rides to our great Marshals.

After racing on Saturday, let the party begin! This is the best opportunity to meet fellow racers and drivers.

Plan to see for yourself, and enjoy La Junta in cool early fall weather.
