#74 Dan Savage and #31 Rick Smith blew the doors off the rest of the field, competing in a race all their own as they moved to the front of pack and dueled for the lead. At lap 24 of the 100 lapper, the leaders approached lapped traffic and Savage controlled a comfortable lead.

This Saturday July 10th is our Independence Day Encore!!! Get down to CNS this Saturday for fireworks, burgers, brats, cold drinks, good people and of course night 2 of our NASCAR Midseason Championship! You simply can't see a show like this anywhere else. We're bringing out the Speedy's Autos Late Models for a 100 lap Main event! Also raring to go are the Pair-A-Dice Sportsman, Sunoco Grand American Modified, and the Two Doors Down Figure 8s. The glorious smell of burnt rubber, gasoline and fireworks awaits you for our Independence Day Encore this Saturday July 10th at Colorado National Speedway!
Among the talent at Colorado National Speedway, Adam Deines, Blackie Blackard, Chris Leaf and Happy Ferree all brought their A Game for the first night of the Independence Day marathon. But Jim Bob Rogers and Cris Muhler just couldn't be taken down.
#62 Jim Bob Rogers started the 30 lap Sportsman A Main on the pole. #99 Nick Brinlee had the outside of row 1. In row 2 #39 Scott Estes had the inside with #38 Frankie Estes on his outside. At lap 10 our point leader #64 Blackie Blackard had taken 2nd place behind Jim Bob, #6 Tommy Roe had 3rd. Try as Blackie might, Jim Bob had a solid hold on his lead and rode it the remaining 20 laps to victory. Blackard took 2nd followed by Roe and #8 Jeff Walbaum.
Mere inches separated the top 4 Late Models during their grueling 20 lap battle for the win. "The Ice Man" Roger Avants stole the lead at the very end, locking in his first A Main win of the season.

Points leader #42 Ronnie Hults left the track before the race started. #27 Roger Avants and #31 Rick Smith had an exciting 19 lap drag race with #12 Bruce Yackey following closely behind. A pile up along the back stretch brought on a red flag. Among the cars involved were the #22 of Chris Eggleston and the #48 of Ed Vecchiarelli Jr, both drivers were towed off the track. When the race resumed, you could throw a blanket over the top 4. Hansen, Smith, Yackey and #11 Darren Robertson raced in tight formation. Robertson backed off the battle for 3rd, paving the way for Yackey. Meanwhile, Avants won the battle for the lead over Rick Smith. At the finish it was Avants followed by Smith, Yackey and Darren Robertson
