Don’t Miss out on Rocky Mountain Race Week 2016!

RPM Magazine’s Rocky Mountain Race Week is the ULTIMATE test of street car drag racers, competing on quarter RMRW-logomile strips every day for a week while driving 1300 adventurous miles between tracks! Rocky Mountain Race Week will be traveling through the Heartland of America and will include spectacular scenery, local hang outs, and small town locals who can’t wait to see your hot rods. Whether racing, or cruising, these drivers and their co-pilots are the cool kids everyone wants to be. And when we say racing, or cruising, we mean it, because on Rocky Mountain Race Week you can participate without racing your car! That’s right, you can sign up to be a part of Rocky Mountain ROAD Week and make the cruise right along side all the racers.

Drivers come from all walks of life, and can compete for the win in a variety of classes that allows 12-second True Street cars to win just like the Unlimited 6-second machines. Nowhere will you see this kind of variety cruising America’s highways and bi-ways while also tearing it up on the dragstrip. And while bragging rights and a sense of accomplishment are enough for some, Rocky Mountain Race Week also throws cash down on the table in EVERY SINGLE CLASS! Everyone thinks they have the fastest streetcar. Rocky Mountain Race Week lets them prove it, with no support vehicles!
