RMVR Is Celebrating Our TENTH YEAR Supporting The Morgan Adams Foundation

Due to the current COVID-19 environment, the Race Against Kids’ Cancer will be different from what RMVR has done in the past. Returning to racing went well at La Junta but is still very fluid and tenuous. RMVR will, of course, comply with the rules and regulations from the various governmental agencies that oversee public safety and health. At this point, spectators can attend.  There will be modified social gathering, some of which will be announced later, distancing measures, enhanced cleaning protocols and an additional legal waiver to be signed.  Please be aware that anything stated here is subject to change. Thank you for your understanding in these difficult circumstances.

We are once again excited about the prospect of making a significant impact on the Morgan Adams Foundation (MAF), a great organization dedicated to pediatric cancer research. Over the past nine years we’ve raised over $1,200,000 for MAF.  With everyone's help, we can dramatically add to this total to continue supporting pediatric cancer research studies.  This will help doctors better understand, diagnose, and treat tumors. By participating in the Race Against Kids’ Cancer race weekend, you are directly impacting and improving the lives of children with cancer. 

A new “Featured Run Group” for 2020!!!

In past years, Formula Ford was the "Featured Run Group" meeting with great success.  This year, the Big Open wheeled Single Seat, BOSS Formula Cars, will be in the spotlight.  Formula B’s, Formula A’s, Formula Super V’s, F5000’s, Indy cars and others BOSS cars which make a lot of noise and go fast are welcome this year.   They’ll have their own run group and be featured throughout the weekend.  As was done for FF’s in past years, Entry standards are relaxed a bit for cars in this invitational run group.   To expand the field and the fun, newer BOSS formula cars with log books and appropriate safety equipment are welcome alongside our regular vintage BOSS entries. 

Friday T&T will be Exclusive to RMVR making for THREE days of cool on-track experience.

The next big change for this year is that the Friday the HPR Test & Tune will be Exclusively for RMVR racers, its members and those "guest" registrants of the RAKC.  Even if you're not entered for the weekend RMVR members can sign up for the Exclusive RMVR T&T day.  No “track day folks” or other interlopers on track to cope with or using up paddock space.  Sign up HERE with HPR for the extra day of track time on Friday.  Regular prices apply.  But it will just be us RMVR chickens on track.  Plus Friday will have some added features like professional drivers on-site to do some coaching.  More details to follow.

You can Donate to MAF when enter the race by:clicking on a donation to be added to your entry.  Or if you aren't entering the race, you can donate HERE directly to MAF.
