Welcome to Colorado National Speedway
It was a wild one for the Late Models. Speedy Ronnie Hults got off to a good start, piloting his #42 machine into victory for two consecutive wins to start out the Late Model season. Dan Savage, Chris Eggleston and Roger Avants brought their A Game to the track taking the next 3 Late Model A-Mains respectively. It wasn't until the epic midseason championship, that Ronnie Hults took his third win. A massive pile up involving at least 10 competitors during the midseason championship thinned out the field of Late Models considerably for the next several weeks. Despite that fact that far fewer cars were on the track, Roger Avants found the competition even more fierce and still managed to find the line into winner's circle for 3 consecutive events. For the remainder of the season, former CNS champ Bruce Yackey, Rick Smith, Dan Savage and Joe James Jr were always in the mix toward the front of the field, making the fight for the top spot even more exciting. In the end Ronnie Hults pulled off an amazing succession of consistent wins and top 5 finishes and was crowned king of the Late Models taking the 2010 Season Championship.

Leaders Jim Bob Rogers and Bear Lynch approached lapped traffic coming around turn 4 of the final lap, making for a startling finish to the Sportsman Main Event.
#62 Jim Bob Rogers, #6 Tommy Roe and #41 Bear Lynch moved to the front to lead the massive field of sportsman for the 50 lap A-Main Event. A spin out 15 laps in brought the field back together for a restart. Jim Bob had the pole with Bear Lynch on the outside and Tommy Roe had the inside of row 2. Jim Bob elected to take the outside and Lynch passed him via the inside along the back stretch. Another spin out brought on another double file restart. This time, Jim Bob took back his spot at the head of the field. With 10 laps to go, Bear Lynch was putting the pressure on Jim Bob. At lap 42 the leaders were knee deep in lapped traffic. Suddenly, Lynch passed Rogers with only 5 laps to go! Rogers pulled around the inside of Lynch but the two were coming up on lapped traffic as they drove around turn 4. Jim Bob spun out 30 feet from the finish as Lynch sped past the checkered flag for the win.
Whether it's jumping out of an airplane at 10,000 feet, surfing in San Diego, paragliding off the side of a mountain, scuba diving in the Gulf of Mexico, or rappelling down a Denver skyscraper to raise money for breast cancer research, "Extreme Kellie" will try just about anything.
