The entire staff of Colorado national Speedway would like to pass on it's condolences to the family of Jim Opperman.
A successful businessman and former owner of Quality Metal Products, 1974 ERA Super Modified Champion and Late Model driver, Jim Opperman was instrumental in the conversion of Colorado National Speedway from one of the nations finest ½ mile dirt tracks to the present 3/8 mile asphalt facility. Opperman bought Colorado National Speedway in 1989 and transformed the speedway into what as been acknowledged as one of the premier asphalt tracks in the country.

COLORADO NATIONAL SPEEDWAY: A SEASON IN REVIEW (2008)
BY: GEOFF BRIGGS
The 2008 season for Colorado National Speedway (CNS) was one that will go in the record books as a huge success. The season got off with some changes in the office 2 days before the first practice session, as Scotty Backman took over as Track Manager and hung up his helmet for most of the season. The car counts in 2008 grew, and they can only get better in 2009.
Bruce Yackey claimed his fifth Colorado National Speedway ableplanet Late Model track championship, tying him with Roger Avants for the most Late Model track championships at CNS. Yackey used 4 wins, 17 top 5’s and 19 top 10’s to claim the honor by 116 points over Ronnie Hults. Tyler Chrisinger used 2 top 5’s and 10 top 10’s to claim the rookie title. The other drivers to win main events were: Ronnie Hults (5), Rick Smith (5), Roger Avants (3), and Darren Crocker (2).
Bruce Yackey took the lead on lap 22 of the 75-lap USLMA feature during the Colorado Fall Classic at Colorado National Speedway. Happy Ferree bounced back and claimed the Snap-On Tools Pro Truck feature, and Rich Bubak claimed the CARC Modified Coupe feature. Jared Wall claimed the Loveland Goodyear Figure 8 main, Nick Haygood took another ERA Super Modified feature and Jace Hansen claimed another RMLRA Legend Car main event.
Josh Lewis took off in the ERA Super Modified feature with Bryan Gossel, Craig Moore, George Wetzel and Nick Haygood. Haygood stormed to second on lap 9 with Gossel now leading. Haygood stormed to the lead on lap 15 and he was gone. Gossel hung on for a strong second place finish over Harry Stone, Matt Gilbert and Johnny Pickard. The entire race ran caution-free.
