Thanks to everyone who made the Rocky Mountain Shootout 2013 a success!

September 18th, 2013

The 2013 season is complete

The Rocky Mountain Shootout is in the history books for 2013 and we want to take the opportunity to thank all of the racers who competed and all of the spectators who attended this terrific race.

The event this year featured a national-event level field of Pro Mods, with fast times in 6.0 range, and great battles to make the field over four tough rounds of qualifying, followed by some really close races in eliminations.  Strong fields in Top Sportsman and Open Comp featured a lot of great race cars and close racing.

We truly appreciate the hard work and large investment that goes into building and competing a race car in any class, and we want to thank all of the teams who made the commitment to support this race by competing at the Rocky Mountain Shootout this year.

We would also like to thank our great sponsors for their support; JB’s Power Centre, JS Powersports, Challenger Downhole Tools, Precision Performance, Speedzone Magazine, Red Line Oil, Edelbrock, Flowmaster, Comp Cams, FAST Fuel Injection and Micky Thompson Tires. Without them this race would not be possible.

Special thanks go to Dean Murdoch, who worked very hard ahead of this race helping to organize and promote the event, and also served again as race director. Dean is also responsible for all of the excellent race coverage and recaps that are posted on our site.

Special thanks also go to longtime Top Sportsman racer Shawn Tracy, and his company Challenger Downhole Tools. Shawn did a lot of behind the scenes work in bringing out a strong car count for Top Sportsman, and supported every competitor in the Rocky Mountain Shootout by paying for a t-shirt for each racer. I’m not aware of another race anywhere that has that kind of special bonus for the racers, it was a great idea, and a really classy touch to add to the competitor entries.

We would also like to give special thanks to Pro Mod competitor Jay Syvertsen. He is a big supporter of this race, and showed a great commitment by bringing not only his car, but hauling two other racers’ Pro Mod cars from BC to compete here in Edmonton. Jay brings truly infectious enthusiasm for Pro Mod racing, and it’s a sure bet to have a fun event when he is there.

We are committed to promoting fast door-car racing here in Alberta, and are proud to announce that we will be back again for the Third Annual Rocky Mountain Shootout, so mark your calendars and be at Castrol Raceway August 30th & 31st 2014, for another great Labour Day Weekend!
