One season ends, another begins...

Hey everyone! Just wanted to pass along an update from the Losi/TLR team here in Colorado. Since November of last year, we had a great program start in Northglenn, CO, running the Losi Mini-Sprints on an indoor carpet oval track. The Mini-Sprint was the perfect choice of cars because of the size and relative ease of operation. Many racers had not touched a radio in years, or never driven an R/C car, and by the end of the season everyone was challenging for A-Main spots.

More than 120 different racers came out over the 6 months of racing, many recognizable names in Colorado Motorsports. Track organizer Terry Plummer had the following to say after the last race of the season:

"The list of names participating included racers and race car enthusiasts from all different forms of full size racing. Racers and Champions from Midgets, Sprint Cars, Legends, Modifieds, Supermodifieds, Street stocks, Late Models, Fig 8's, Trucks, Mini-sprints, Go-carts, Quarter Midgets and so on. It was an excellent opportunity to get to know and to rub elbows with the best of the local talent. What a tremendous group of individuals! What terrific competition!"

So now we move outdoors, starting tomorrow at the 1st race of the Colorado State R/C Pro Series, back at Colorado Fast Track in Colorado Springs, CO - home of the 2010 ROAR Nationals. Both myself and TLR teammate Matt Chambers should be in attendance at most of the series races:

Race #1 CFT, Colorado Springs, CO - May 7

Race #2 Rat Raceway, Denver, CO - June 4th

Race #3 HobbyTown Longmont, CO - June 26th (Sunday)

Race #4 Thunder Valley, Morrison, CO - July 16

Race #5 Dirt Works, Burlington, CO - Aug 7

Race #6 Dusty Trails, Pueblo, CO - Sept 10

The first "big" race of our season goes down May 20th-22nd, at the annual Manufacturers Cup at Dirt Works in Burlington, CO, near the Kansas border. Dirt Works has become one of the premier tracks in Colorado, and the Manufacturers Cup is always on everyone’s calendar.

Feel free to stop by if you're in the area at any of these races - it's a great time of year to be racing in Colorado!
