Default RAT Raceway 2008 Off-Road Schedule




Hello All
Are you ready for another great race season at RAT Raceway???? This year looks to be better then years past with more track inprovements and a even better race schedule.
This year RAT will be racing every weekend! Every other race will be Sportsman Race day at a discount race price ! Other races will be RAT series races. Upper level drive will be invited to race on sportsman days but will not be allowed to place on the podium.

This season RAT will be running 3ea Seven min quals and a 30 min A-Main for all series club races.

For our Sportsman race days we will be running 2ea Five min Quals and a 20 min A-Main.



1st 2nd and 3ed will receive metals for all Sportsman and Club Series races. We will also be awarding trophies for the Point series Champions at the last race of the season.

We are also running the Colorado State Nitro Series (C.S.N.S.) 2 track series (this year) at RAT Raceway and Burlington Dirt works. Best 3 out of 4 races. We will be running a point system based off of number of entries at each race. I.E. 30 racers in a class would mean 30 points to the winner of the Amain. TQ will receive 3 points.

This should be awesome!

Don't think i'll be driving out to Watkins too often considering the best track in the state is less than 10 minutes from my place!

i have a pretty good feeling that if froboy comes out, it is everyone else that will be needing to bring their "A-game".
