We are excited to release our 2011 schedule. This year we are featuring a longer racing season with some big Changes. The Races will start 2 hours earlier in April and October with the Qualifying dash beginning at 4:00pm. The figure 8 division will join the Late Models, Sportsman, Pro trucks and Super Stocks as a sanctioned NASCAR division. The Challenge Cup XXXVII will be moved up to Labor Day. We are actively seeking sponsorship for this race, to return it to the huge Late Model Race that it once was. Stay tuned, further announcements will be coming soon. Another change will be the combing of the grand American Modifieds and the Modified Coupes into one division. We are excited to welcome back the K&N Pro Series West on August 6th for the NAPA/Toyota 150. Last but not least we will wrap up the 2011 season with not one but two Championship nights October 15th and 22nd. With Practice just around the corner on March 19th and 26th we can’t wait to get started. We hope to see every one soon at Colorado National Speedway “YOU’VE GOTTA BE HERE!”
Colorado National Speedway Ownership and Management would like to announce a division change for the 2011 race season. As most of you are aware, the Grand American drivers were notified that the Grand American division was being dropped at CNS effective 01/01/11 due to a number of factors. After listening to our racers thoughts and concerns we went back to work to come up with a possible alternative solution. After much discussion, we have decided to combine the Grand American Modifieds with the Modified Coupes for a period of 1 year. Both Divisions have struggled with car counts and this will be our last attempt to help build these classes back up to where they belong in order to maintain an individual class going forward. We believe this will enhance the entertainment value of the product we put in front of our fans each week, as well as provide the participants in each of the two classes an opportunity to increase car counts and build strength within their respective divisions.
Each division will run their own rules, and be awarded separate points. We hope this will allow both divisions to eventually return back to separate divisions. We at CNS are excited about this new combination and will work very closely with both CARC and the Grand American drivers and owners to work through the inevitable challenges that will result from this change. We feel it’s the right thing to do for all of our racers in these divisions that have supported our track over the years, as well as our fans who deserve strong, full field classes to watch each week.
In addition, we have unfortunately also found it necessary to drop the Bus class from the 2011 schedule. As a result of these changes, the Figure 8’s will replace the GAM’s as our 5th NASCAR Weekly Series Division, receiving all of the recognition and awards that come with being a sanctioned class.
Look for our 2011 race schedule in the coming days!

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.
