Pikes Peak Raceway Invitational Auto-X May 26 & 27

This is from the RMsolo forum....anyone going? Sounds like a great deal, I may have to do this one if I can free up next weekend.

PPIR has asked CDR to host an event Memorial Day weekend, May 26 & 27.
Yes, we know this is conflict with the Spring Nationals in Lincoln.

We (CDR) are hosting this weekend in appreciation of the great relationship we have with PPIR.

BTW, there will be video crews on site taping both days.
So you could star in a future PPIR commercial!

Something cool that PPIR has planned is for the video crew to use a model helicopter with a video camera mounted on it.
One shot they are planning to do has the model helicopter starting at the PPIR entrance, fly through the tunnel,
around the road course and oval, then over the grand stands and out over the VIP lot.
Where we will be autoxing.

The concept of the Invitational is to get cars from every car club to come play on the VIP lot at PPIR.
We need your help to get the word out about this event.
So feel free to copy the below information and post it anywhere you think will get folks out to the Invitational.

What Matt said, this is different than the Pueblo track, that one is Pueblo Motorsports Park.
