BOISE, Idaho – The CarbonX Rocky Mountain Challenge Series will open up its tenth season of competition in 2013 with many new faces joining series veterans making for one of the most exciting seasons in the 10-year history.
The series features a 20-car invert which is unique among late-model touring series’ around the country.
CarbonX, the world leader in fire protective clothing, returns for the sixth season as title sponsor of the popular Late Model touring series serving the Intermountain West. The series will stage 10 races this season at three distinctive tracks within the region. Magic Valley Speedway will host five races including a $10k to win 200-lap event June 15.
Local Twin Falls business Century Boatland/Century Motorsports will sponsor the marquee event in June which is already receiving interest from drivers from across the region.
Since 1985, Century Boatland/Century Motorsports has been the area headquarters for new and used recreational, pleasure, and fishing boats, along with a complete line of snowmobiles and motorcycles.
Bruce Quale of Twin Falls, Idaho, claimed the 2012 series championship in dominating fashion scoring eight top five finishes including one victory en route to the title, is back in 2013 to defend his title against long-time rival and 2012 titlist Steve Jones. Both Quale and Jones cut their racing teeth at Magic Valley Speedway in Twin Falls, and the schedule certainly favors MVS veterans with five races on three different weekends.
The series will open the 2013 campaign on May 4 at MVS with return trips on June 14-15 for the big double-header Century Motorsports 200 weekend. The series will return Aug. 9-10 for another twin bill.
