Round two is dusted and over with and we have our eyes set on round three of the RMRA Series this weekend in Pueblo, Colorado. This round will mark the third race of the year and also the halfway point of the short, five-round season. We’ve never journeyed down to the Pueblo facility and we’d be lying if we told ya we aren’t ecstatic to go check it out.
We’re hoping for some old school vibes this weekend as Honor Farm MX Park is a revamped version of an ancient giant. Since its inception in the early 1970s, many SRAC races and even state championships have been held at the iconic location—until the year 2010 when the then promoters decided to halt operations. The motocross track sat abandoned until our friend, Jeff Greenwood, with Southern Colorado Motocross Promotions decided to pursue a revival. The revival was successfully achieved in 2018 when the track hosted its first race after an eight-year hiatus. Fast forward to this weekend and he’ll be hosting the third race since the Corona comeback… and let’s just say it’s shaping up to be an awesome weekend of Colorado motocross. The 80 degree weather will be perfect, Double D’s BBQ will be cookin’ all the meats, pit bike races will go down on Saturday, and did we mention, we are racing dirbikes on Sunday? Yeah, it is going to be dope.
The legend, Jeff Greenwood, has put in a ton of time to make this place race ready, and we’re ready to load the gates and get the party started. BUT, before y’all jump in your rigs and head south, let us dig into a few things the series has brewing.
Bad News / Good News
The bad news is, the above schedule looks pretty depressing, with only five rounds and no super-cross its hard not to tear up. The good news is we may have hit the point in the year where races are more set in stone. Sure there are only three rounds left, but it’s looks like Sweney Cycle Park is an absolute GO, and if we can race in Pueblo, we should be able to race Aztec to wrap up this short Championship. That’s not it though, over the break there was talk on electronic scoring next year. If that’s the case, that may be the best news of 2020, unless Thunder Valley reschedules and we get six races instead of five. Oh yeah, and free Gatorade again this round, too.
