  • Friday test-and-tune. the gate opens Friday at 7 am. The track will be controlled by track management on Friday, not RMVR.  If you plan to test and tune Friday, you must register and pay in-advance on-line at Pueblo Motorsport Park's MSR Website.  Track fees are listed on their website.

  • Friday Night Drags:  Drag Racers move in Friday at 4:00 pm and move out after midnight.
  • Friday evening move-in. There is no gate fee for RMVR participants, so use the password “RMVR” with gate personnel Friday night to avoid the $10 entry fee.

RMVR welcomes entrants from other Vintage automobile racing clubs including; CVAR, SWMS, NASA, and other clubs with vintage and historic race cars of interest to the racing community.  Interested participants should contact the race chairman before the end of May and prior to registration to assure eligibility for this event. 

The Feature of the weekend will be the Thunderous Upper Class A and B cars in Production Sportscar and Production Sedan including the AP big-block Corvettes, BP GT-350s, Tigers, and E-types, plus the top guns in “Saloon” including A-Sedan Camaros, Mustangs, Cudas, and Firebirds, and the B-Sedan door-slammin' Bimmer 2002s and Alfa GTVs amongst others. Other V8 powered cars including the Formula 5000 cars and NASCAR race cars will be attending.  Indy car racing will take place both Saturday and Sunday.

The traditional track-side party will kick off around 5:00 pm on Saturday.   The barbeque dinner will include open beer and wine “bar”.  Because the dinner meal requires a head count several days in advance, guest and crew dinner tickets should be purchased in advance on-line when registering.  As usual, one dinner ticket is included with each entry. Ticket purchases offset the cost of providing complimentary dinners to our track marshals and officials.
