Sheil Doubles up with win at Lamar Speedway

Lamar, CO. (July 5, 2014) After a rain out at El Paso County Speedway in Calhan, CO on July 4th the RMMRA headed east to Lamar Speedway in Lamar, CO. This is the first time that the RMMRA has been to Lamar Speedway and is the only visit for 2014. The RMMRA showed up with a strong contingent bringing 15 cars and the largest car count of the night for any class. Promoter Kelly Morris had Lamar Speedway prepped and ready to go and right from the start the track was fast and provided multiple grooves for heat race action.
After strong heat races, won by Keith Rauch and Tony Rossi, the field was set for the feature. With a  "five" rolled for the inversion the heat race front runners were set back in the 9th and 10th starting spots. As the green fell the race was on with multiple passes and dicing back and forth for position. A caution flew when Tony Rossi and Scott Haikus made contact in turn three. After the restart, the race heated up with Chris Sheil, Keith Rauch, Bob Harr, and Greg Schaefer holding a tight battle up front. At the checkers it was Sheil grabbing his second win of the season in the StealthCom Solutions, Inc., Bell Racing Beast/Brayton. 

    ***The RMMRA would like to thank Lamar Speedway for the invitation and look forward to returning in 2015. We would like to also thank all of the drivers and teams that came out and made the show a success!!
