Rocky Mountain Raceways

Now I know that a boycott usually means taking your money elsewhere. However, for race fans like myself, this is not possible in Utah. When we arrived, I took notice of a sign prohibiting weapons, and my dad told me the usually check people for them. So I did the unthinkable! I concealed my sidearm! :shocked: I know, I know. I should have just turned and immediately left to show my support for lawful gun owners. But since there is no other racing venues in Utah, and the distance I traveled to see this event, I decided to put my permit (and civil disobedience) to use. When it came time for us to leave, I carried openly out past the staff that was supposed to check for weapons. One gentleman gave me a confused look, but nobody else seemed to notice. Just before leaving, I snapped this photo of a GIANT sign that prohibits lawful possession of a firearm.

*gasp* I'm shocked!

Okay I'm over it. Go here for more excitement anyway. :D Oval and drag races get boring after a while. Also you can drive kart track which is awesome.

Ah, yes. A Larry H. Miller venue. Now there's a good alternative for gun owners. :lol3:

Someone should call the Raceway and then tell them that you are arranging for a party for UCCDC and you would like to make reservations for a big party we want to organize. You need to tell them that there will be about 500 people and we will need lots of food and reserved seating.

As they are salivating over the reservation, make note to clarify that UCCDC stands for UtahConcealedCarry.com and that of course we will all be armed.

When they tell you of their policy, tell them how sorry you are but that you will have to take your business elsewhere and find some other sporting activity to take us all to.


As I see it, that is about the best way to get their attention.

Haha I didn't even think about that part. I've never noticed a sign prohibiting firearms but I don't really look for them either since i conceal and don't really care about the signs. I'm sure they are there just like all his other places. I'm still cracking up about how you concealed past the signs.

Just so we all know who we're dealing with, as I recall RMR is owned by Spencer Young of Young Chevrolet fame in Layton.

I would love a group activity at RMR or even LHM raceway out in Tooele for this and the OCDO group...
Have to be next year though... I think the season is OVER for now!

Actually, the Tooele County Friends of the NRA had our fund-raising banquet at the clubhouse at Miller Motorsports Park. They were very gracious and did everything we asked. It was a great event...

I know this is an old thread. However, there has been a management change at RMR (for the better) since this thread was last posted to. That sign is gone, hasn't been there for awhile. And I think the new management isn't necessarily supportive of that sign returning.

FYI, Tee, we generally don't have an issue with people resurrecting old threads on UCC. Thanks for the update!
