RMQMA has its marketing booth at Witthar Racing's annual Oval Track & High Performance Trade show and swap meet at Boulder County fairgrounds.
It was a successful day of marketing for the club with a lot of interest from some prospective young drivers.
A big Thank You goes out to the Lawson and Fiser family for bringing out cars for display.
We also want to Thank Don Morrison, Mike Ellinger, Robyn Lawson & drivers Chaz and Blake Lawson for taking time out of their Saturday to work the booth.
We look forward to getting the first "TRY-IT-YOU-LIKE-IT" event scheduled this spring. Our goal is to get 15 new novices families per year.
We were able to speak with Colorado National Speedway track promoter Jim Nordhougen this past weekend regarding future marketing opportunities for RMQMA.
He was very positive with working with us to have a booth a few times throughout the summer at the speedway and possibly a demonstration race during intermission.
Several RMQMA drivers have moved on to race in various divisions at Colorado National Speedway. Those divisions include: Legends, Super late models and Pro trucks.
Without Everyone's involvement we have nothing to look forward to.
We hope that everyone can look back on the season of all the late nights in the garage and long days at the track and appreciate the victories large and small.
THANKS AGAIN FOR A WONDERFUL SEASON!! See More

What an Awesome day we had at the track on Saturday for our "Try-it-you-like-it" Event!
We had 6 children RSVP and 9 show up! What a great turn-out. It looked like all had a good time and were able to give a race car a try.
The ages ranged from 4 1/2 to 12 and it looked like all were naturals.
If you had plans and were not able to make it, send us an email and we will put you on the list for our next event.
We want to THANK the Morrison family for the use of their three cars for the event!
