For Immediate Release July 9, 2014
This just in…RPM MAG/Lucas Oil Products Extreme Events Presented by Mickey Thompson has announced that the Renegade Racing Association August 2nd and August 16th events will be added to the Extreme Events 2014 line-up.
“With our two planned 2014 events in the books, we’re adding a bonus to the mix,” explains RPM Editor In Chief Chris Biro. “We started working with the Renegade Racing Association (RRA) a few months back and since that time we’ve really gotten to know these folks. They are great group of people with a solid lineup of fast cars, and we wanted to get involved at a grassroots level!”
Headed up by Director Kristal Cowle, the RRA is a heads-up style index class organization that adds an Outlaw Limited Street class to select events and promotes drag racing fast muscle cars from all eras right up to present day, and in every configuration imaginable.
“The RENEGADE RACING ASSOCIATION…one of the hottest tickets in Heads-up/Index Racing in Northeast Ohio just got EXTREME!” exclaims Cowle. “We are proud to be partnering with RPM Magazine to hopefully become a full stop on the schedule of the Extreme Events in 2015! But who wants to wait a year? Not RPM…so this August will be a preview of what’s to come with additional purse and prizes being thrown in the mix across all 5 classes at their previously scheduled events; the Index Classes August 2nd and the Outlaw Limited Street Class August 16th.”
Biro continued, “The Renegades remind us of the way the sport of street car drag racing started; their a close knit bunch with fast cars who just want to have fun and put on a show. No politics, and having the biggest dollar race operation is not necessarily the major deciding factor on the outcome of their races. In other words, it’s old school!”
“While our involvement for 2014 is a late-in-the-game pilot project, we’re hoping we can we can work closely with the RRA to create a single larger special event within their existing schedule for 2015 ”.
