This year, Oskar Blues decided to do something it’s never done before (shocker??). We joined forces with a local race car and race team at the Colorado National Speedway, just down the road from the brewery in Longmont. And we’re STOKED!
Rocky Mountain Motorsports (RMM)), a Super Late Model Stock Car team based in Brighton, Colorado will be competing at Colorado National Speedway (CNS), located in Erie, CO, five times this coming season in the NASCAR Whelen American Series Super Late Model Division. Whether you’re a die-hard NASCAR fan, or a newbie to the scene, come check it out with us! Our team is racing May 27, June 30, August 11, September 2, and September 29 – plus, we’re opening up the season with a special run this weekend, 4/21.
We’ll be doing beer samplings at the race track on select dates, and Mama’s Little Yella Pils CANS will be available there all season long. In addition, the Dale’s Pale Ale 2-seater ride along car will be displayed at the track on our car’s race days. Wanna ride? Fans will be able to experience the high speed thrill of turning some laps in a real NASCAR vehicle with an accomplished driver!
And on June 30th, Oskar Blues is hostin’ an all out, OB-style ho-down at the race track. We’ll have the Bonewagon Food Truck, beer samplings, a special VIP area, and the Oskar Blues Fireworks Show.
The races at CNS are only the beginning of the racing season’s festivities, as the team and car will make several appearances along the Colorado Front Range as well. We have several “meet and greets” set up locally with the driver & team, and of course, the car! We’ve already made a stop at Tipsy’s Liquor World a few weeks ago!
Some other race car appearances:
4/28 – March for Babies in support of March of Dimes Foundation in Greeley
5/4 – Twin Peak Liquor in Longmont
5/25 – Twin Peaks Restaurant in Colorado Mills
6/9 -Brewgrass South Pearl Music Festival in Denver
7/20 – Morrison Liquor in Morrison
Check out the calendar on the Rocky Mountain Motorsports Facebook page for more information on these events.
Rocky Mountain Motorsports is owned by Kevin & Melissa Steinke who live in Morrison, Colorado. Kevin and Melissa have been fortunate enough to have the services of Cris Muhler to drive their race car. Cris has been driving stock cars for over 20 years and has raced almost every type of car that competes at CNS, winning in all of them.
A few month’s back, we got to thinkin’ of some things we’ve never done, and partnering up with a race team was one of them. So we thought, why not! That’s our style – pushing boundaries while tying local communities together. Local racing, local beer, local people. A match made in our race car heaven! CAN ya dig it?
