LOOKING BEHIND AT 2008; LOOKING FORWARD TO 2009
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).
