Welcome to Colorado National Speedway
One of the most popular and well liked drivers at Colorado National Speedway is Richard "the Rock" Burton and as many of you might know Richard was struck by lightening on September 9th. All of us at CNS have been praying for Richard who remains in the hospital. This event has sent shockwaves through the Colorado Racing community.
Regular updates regarding Richard's condition as well as the out pouring of prayers and well wishes are being shared at BigWestRacing.com. Please feel to stop by Big West Racing and check on Richard's condition and send your well wishes along as well.
These last two races will be the most intense of the season! Everything is riding on these events so expect the racing to be tighter, faster and the most suspenseful it's been all year long!
The Snap-on Tools Challenge Cup XXXV
09-19-2009 (SS F8 LEG MC SM BUS)
Get ready for an intimidating field of Super Stocks. The insane Figure Eighters will be here for some close calls in the X. Legend drivers Wayne Barlock and Kyle Clegg will duke it out for second in points, so you won't want to miss our last Legend race of the season. The modified coupes will be here for some open wheel racing and the lightning fast Super Modified will bring a serious competition to the track as well. And of course, it just wouldn't be the same without those ridiculous buses to finish the evening off.
RED BULL STUNT TEAM
The Red Bull motorcycle stunt team will be performing at CNS during intermission at this weekends race (9-19-2009). You wont want to miss this!
09-26-2009 2009 (LM 100 LAPS PT SP GAM TR)
It'll be a sad farewell on Saturday, September 29th but don't go getting all teary eyed on us... we've still got racing to do! It's the Final Late Model bout of the 2009 season. Cris Muhler will bring his "A" game to defend his crown against Bruce "the moose" Yackey in a 100 lap Late Model Main event. Roger Avants, "speedy" Ronnie Hults and Rick Smith will be on hand to give Muhler and the Moose a run for their money.
The Pro Trucks will hit the track as well, along with the Sportsman and the Grand American Modified. The trains will cap off the 2009 season at Colorado National Speedway.
The final two special events at CNS will be only $15 for adults, $6 for kids and as always, little ones get in free with a free hot dog!
Firework show after the races on Saturday night!
CNS PACE CAR GIVEAWAY
The Positive Spin, Thunder Kids Official CNS Pace Car drawing giveaway will be held September 26th on the final night of the CNS season.
The Speedway will move the events scheduled for September 12, 2009 to Saturday September 26, 2009. The Challenge Cup part II scheduled for Saturday September 19 will take place as scheduled. The change in schedule will force the cancelation of the “Outlaw Cup” that had been originally scheduled for the 26th of September, but at this time the practice session and car show scheduled for Friday September 25 will take place as schedule.
Sunday night concluded the Pepsi Labor Day weekend Shoot Out at Colorado National Speedway. Clear skies ushered in an unforgettable night of racing. The Legends brought 4 different divisions to race in 2 separate features. The Pros and Masters matched up against each other and the Semi Pros raced along side the Young Lions (Legends drivers 16 and under). The winners of tonightís Legend features would take a spot in the Asphalt Nationals in Lanier, GA.
The Super Modifieds rounded up the evening's events, followed by the Sportsman. The Pro Trucks came out to headline the program for their second to last feature of the season. Both Mark Neff and Billy Harkins were riding on the heels of point leader Adam Deines. All we could do was wait (on the edge of our seats) to see what would happen.
The 2009 season at Colorado National Speedway is winding down to a close. Only 4 nights of racing remain, making these last few bouts crucial to the point leaders in every division. After missing more than 20% of this year’s main events thanks to weather related cancellations, every driver at Colorado National Speedway is eager to make each and every one of these last few races count. The situation couldn’t be better for action-hungry NASCAR race fans. As the season nears closer to its end, the competition becomes more unpredictable at every turn around the oval.

It was retro night at Colorado National Speedway on August 29th. The vintage cars were on display at the front gates, the mod coupes raced wingless, and mother nature tagged along as always to give us a little sprinkle before the main events. Thousands of fans packed the grandstands (umbrellas ready), pumped to see the Sportsman headline the evening’s main events.
Currently leading the Comfort Shack Sportsman is Jim Bob Rogers with 292 points, followed by Tommy Roe at 284 and Jeffrey Walbaum with 279 points. Not far behind are Blacky Blackard with 249 points and Jeff Webb at 236. The talented Nick Brinlee and rookie Doug Jensen are riding close behind.
The much anticipated, 30 lap, Sportsman A Main kicked off with a bang as #99 Nicholas Brinlee and #98 Lee Kemmit sped away for 1st and 2nd respectively, leading the massive field of 25 cars. #62 Jim Bob Rogers raced up past Kemmit with ease as #46 Blackie Blackard, who started in 8th place joined the fray. Contact in turn 4 drove Frankie Estes into the wall and the ensuing yellow lined Brinlee and Jim Bob up. When the race resumed, Jim Bob and Blackie, passed Brinlee. Soon, Blackie rode along the outside of Jim Bob, but Blackie got loose and Jim Bob sped off. The tides turned for Blackie as a yellow flag closed the distance between him and Jim Bob Rogers. It only took 5 laps for Blackie to steal the lead from Jim Bob. Good ol’ Jim Bob wouldn’t give up though, sticking with him and nearly passing him along the front stretch at the very last lap. But it was Blackie Blackard (the guy who just two weeks ago, said that damage to his car could take him out of the 2009 season altogether) who passed the checkered first, winning by a nose!
