After kicking off the season with the first of three stops at Black Hills Speedway in Rapid City, SD, and making the first of two trips to Sweetwater Speedway in Rock Springs, WY, the first ever ASCS Rocky Mountain Region Speedweek gets underway on May 29-30 at Thunder Mountain Speedway in Olathe, CO.
