Colorado National Speedway is excited to announce the addition of a new division for the 2018 season and beyond. The Bandoleros! A Bandolero is a INEX sanctioned division similar to the Legend Cars. Therefore now CNS will have two starter level divisions: Pure Stocks and Bandoleros. Yet unlike Pure Stocks Bandoleros are for younger drivers 8-16 years of age. The division will be broken into two groups that will race together on the track:
- Bandit – Ages 8 thru 11
- Outlaw – Ages 12 – 16*
* 17 years olds are welcome as long as they were 16 years old at the start of the season. Also, all drivers will begin at the Bandit level until approved by INEX officials to move up to Outlaw status.
Bandolero cars run a 26HP Briggs and Stratton engine and they are fast for their small size. Therefore the division will run on the CNS “Roval” which is combination oval and road course setup. This will also teach the drivers more skills and also reduce costs since no tire cutting will be needed.
The Bandolero’s will run 7 times in 2018: May 12th, 27th, June 16th, July 6th, August 18th, September 1st, and October 6th. There are already almost 10 Bandolero cars ready for the 2018 season.
