The Rocky Mountain Race Week is a seven-day, multi-state drag racing competition known as "the ultimate test of drag racers."
With seven days of racing on four different tracks, Rocky Mountain Race Week is a fun, challenging series that follows in the tradition of "Drag and Drive" events. As the name suggests, one of the competition’s unique challenges for racers is navigating the mountainous terrain along the way.
"It’s great to be part of events like the Rocky Mountain Race Week," Jason Moulton, Sr. Motorsports Manager of Mickey Thompson Tires & Wheels said. "We are excited to sponsor these races and invite everyone to come participate and watch the action."
This year, there will be two weeks of racing: the first round (1.0) is in June, and the second round (2.0) is in September. Round 1.0 kicks off June 18 in Great Bend, Kansas and winds through Nebraska and Colorado before returning to Great Bend for the final day on June 24. Race 2.0 starts Sept. 4 in Noble, Oklahoma and will travel through the state and into Texas before finishing Sept. 9 back in Noble.
There are 12 classes for everything from rat rods to pro street cars, and all cars and racers must meet National Hot Rod Association safety requirements for the speed they are running. A maximum of 250 cars can participate in race week. For more information on the race and rules, visit rockymountainraceweek.com.
