Thompson Motorsports Announces Tentative Racing Schedule for 2010

By RA Fariello

In something of a departure from many previous years of racing, TMS and Brett Thompson will compete in THREE different racing series during the 2010 season.

They are”

  • The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWT)
  • The NASCAR K & N Pro Series West (KNPSW)
  • The Rocky Mountain Challenge Series (RMCS)

For NASCAR fans, the first two series are well known. The major changes in these two series are to the truck BRAND (Chevrolet), the Engine Supplier (ECR), and a new TMS Crew Chief (the well known, Charlie Wilson). More on these topics has been covered in separate press releases.

A brief description of the Rocky Mountain Challenge Series is in order for our fans, particularly those not living in the Northwest. RMCS is a relatively new series created by several tracks and teams, and brought to fruition by Mike Minegar. The cars are very light and similar to the generic Super Late Model or Southwest Tour cars. The major difference lies within the engine rules. RMCS engines are, for all intents and purposes, limited only by their 410 cu. in. displacement rule and a Holly 4 bl. carburetor flowing 390 cu. ft. Horsepower figures for these engines have been cryptically reported as well ‘over 610’. When coupled with a low, sleek, and light chassis, these cars produce staggering levels of performance for full bodied cars.

The TMS #61 entry in this series will be powered by a Dodge engine built by the highly awarded engine builder and TMS friend, Kevin Kroyer, at his North Las Vegas Engine Shop.

Please check the TMS and RMCS website for future information. Thank You, from TMS.
