          Sheil Captures Ken Clark Memorial Season Finale at I-76 Speedway | Rauch Claims 10th Series Title!!! 







Sept 15, 2018 - The RMMRA concluded the 2018 season bringing 22 cars to Butch Speicher’s I-76 Speedway. Heat race action began with Patrick Bourke, Keith Rauch, and Zack Merritt taking wins. A “12” on the speed dice invert set up the feature line up and saw Paul Babich and Jesse Fernandez leading the field to green. 

On the start, Babich jumped to the lead with the field in tow. Tony Rossi from his 5th starting spot made his way through the field taking the lead a few circuits in with Babich moving into the 2nd spot. As the track begin to rubber, 6th place starter, Lance Bennett found it first and moved to the top of the race track, quickly picking off positions. As drivers searched for the rubber, Chris Sheil began moving forward behind Bennett while the two of them caught the leaders. Rossi, Babich, Bennett, and Sheil would battle lap after lap until Bennett took the point about half way through.

Sheil, from his 9th place starting spot was able to clear Babich and Rossi and set his sights on Bennett. Heading into turn one he was able to get under Bennett and take the point, continuing to the checkers and capturing the season finale for the Lucas Oil RMMRA midgets. 

Keith Rauch, who missed last week’s event due to an unfortunate work related accident returned to the seat of Frank Peterson’s potent 27. Heading into the final night, Rauch and RMMRA veteran Bob Harr had a tight points battle with just 19 points separating the two. After a heat race win and a 4th place finish in Saturday’s finale, Rauch was able to come away with his 10th championship, passing RMMRA legend Randy Roberts with the most series titles!!!

Our thoughts are with Patrick Bourke who sustained a broken vertebrae in the feature event. The outlook is positive and we wish him all the best on his road to recovery. 

Special thanks to Buckeye Welding Supply Company and Nordy's BBQ & Grill for their support in sponsoring the final event of 2018. Also, a very heartfelt thank you to Karen Clark and the rest of the Clark family for their attendance and support of the 4th Annual Ken Clark Memorial!

RMMRA partners with POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget Series









Belleville, IL –

Debuting in early 2018, POWRi has partnered with the Denver, Colorado-based Rocky Mountain Midget Racing Association (RMMRA) to create the POWRi Lucas Oil RMMRA Midget Series. The goal of POWRi and RMMRA’s partnership is to continue the growth of midget racing in the Western portion of the United States. This will also allow the POWRi Lucas Oil West Midget League to co-sanction more events together, like the two-day weekend at Airport Raceway in Garden City, Kansas.

The POWRi Lucas Oil RMMRA Midget Series will continue to operate in similar fashion, with Keith Rauch (President) and Chris Sheil (Vice President) in charge, but this partnership will leverage the tools and resources of POWRi to strengthen their presence in Colorado and the surrounding states. “We are excited to come under the POWRi banner,” commented Keith Rauch, President of RMMRA. “This will allow for strengthened support on both sides of the Colorado border.”

The POWRi Lucas Oil RMMRA Midget Series is part of the National Midget Racing League and is invited to compete in the Mid-Season and Season Championship races being held at Valley Speedway and Kennedale Speedway, respectively. The top seven in points amongst the National, West, and RMMRA midgets will compete in a championship feature event at the Mid-Season and Season Championship events. “This is an outstanding opportunity to promote the growth of midget racing out West,” said Eric Fenton, POWRi West Director. “Both of our series already work together and this ensures that we can grow in a mutually beneficial way.”

RMMRA has a rich history, formed in 1940 by a group of Denver, Colorado-based drivers and car owners. After a brief gap in history due to World War II, RMMRA picked back up in 1946 and has held strong since. “POWRi is very supportive of RMMRA’s rich history,” stated Chris Sheil, Vice President of RMMRA. “This mutually beneficial partnership is necessary for RMMRA to continue growing and to reach the next level for the series.”
