Welcome to Colorado National Speedway
2013 was another incredible season at Colorado National Speedway. Mother nature was a little bit more generous this past season which really made for a fun season of racing. As usual there were plenty of new faces in the pits and some of these young drivers really made an impact on the track. Yet it was the crafty veterans who shined the brightest sending the message to these youngsters “not so fast, there is still a lot of fuel in our tank”.
(10-05-2013 Dacono, CO) The final race for the 2013 season at CNS honored the birthday of our good friend and loyal employee Johnny Witthar. Not only was there a great birthday bash there was also plenty of fantastic short track racing. Wild action in the Xtreme Trucks, DEMOX, and Trains, thrilled the fans before the lights shut down for the final time in 2013. Dominic Ursetta in the Super Late Models and Kyle Ray in the Legend Cars swept the night setting quick time and winning BOTH segments of their respective divisions.
(09-28-2013 Dacono, CO) Lee Kemmit powered his GTI Camaro to the final Late Model feature win of the 2013 season but it was Gering Nebraska's Paul Deines who brought home the season championship. Jeff Hunter swept the Grand American Modified events as well as the season championship and Chris Eggleston was crowned the Legend car track champion. The inaugural Pure Stock championship was won by Jeff Dempwolf, and the "Last Call" Train took home season honor's in the Witthar Racing Trains division.
(09-21-2013 Dacono, CO) The only thing sure going into Challenge Cup XXXIX was that Bruce Yackey was on route to winning his 8th track championship but he would have liked to add a Challenge Cup win to his dominating season performance. Both the Super Stock and Figure 8 season championships were completely up for grabs as both divisions had tight season standings.
Mountain View Fire also extended it's thanks to CNS, it's fans, and race teams, for canceling the event as it would have obstructed the rescue efforts that were underway.
The standing CNS policy for races that have been cancelled for weather conditions is that we do not reschedule them. There are simply too many factors to overcome in rescheduling these events including conflicts that drivers and teams might have with the available rescheduled dates. There is no logistical nor fair way of making up these races and therefore we do not reschedule them.
That being said, we realize everyone (including ourselves) was excited to see Mark Neff and Rudy Vanderwal battle it out for the Pro Truck Championship as the two drivers were only separated by a single point. Mark Neff is crowned the 2013 Pro Truck champion. Yet both Mark and Rudy deserve congratulations as they put on a fantastic battle all season long.
We would also like to congratulate Cris Muhler who dominated the Mod Coupe division and took home the 2013 track championship. Richie Caster Jr. beat his own teammate Harold Evans by 2 points to take home the ERA Supermodified championship.
Congratulations to all the drivers, teams, and car owners on a great 2013 season.
Looking forward, the track is ready to go and there will be Test and Tunes Friday September 20th as we gear up for Challenge Cup XXXIX on Saturday the 21st.
