COLORADO NATIONAL SPEEDWAY DIVISIONS
Super Late Model
The Super Late Models are the premiere racing division at Colorado National Speedway, and are proudly sponsored by Mountain States Fire Protection. A high-performance chassis, powerful V8 motor, and fiberglass & aluminum bodies blend together to create the fastest racing division at CNS. Drivers are not only competing for local points, but also regional and national points as well.
The MATCO Tools Pro Trucks are modeled after the Camping World trucks you see on television, and are built from the ground up on a professionally fabricated racing chassis that is just a little bit longer than a Late Model. Their powerful V8 motors and low ride heights make for fast paced action around the 3/8 mile paved CNS oval.
The Late Models division is sponsored by Galitz Transportation. Although the Late Models look very much like the Super Late Models, they are separated by more stringent parts and design restrictions which keep the race cars competitive but more affordable than their Super counterparts. The Late Models are one of the fastest growing divisions at CNS and have become a fan favorite for intense competition.
Grand American Modified
The Sunoco Grand American Modifieds are open wheel race cars powered by motors similar to those in the Pro Trucks, but with factory front stubs, hand-made aluminum or fiberglass bodies, and professionally engineered suspensions, these cars handle exceptionally well and turn one exciting lap after another.
The Elite Diesel Service Figure 8’s are one of the most popular racing divisions at CNS. Built to look like a Late Model, Figure 8 machines are designed to turn both left and right, and race each other in a crisscross figure eight pattern through the infield; with cars narrowly missing one another as the race goes on. The Figure 8’s are truly edge-of-your-seat racing!
The Pueblo Bank & Trust Super Stocks are very similar to the Pure Stocks, but the rules allow for drivers to add more “go fast” parts and pieces to make them quicker around the track. The Spirit of the Super Stock division is to create an affordable and competitive racing class that is both challenging for drivers and exciting for fans to watch.
If the Rock & Roll Brewery Pure Stocks look just like a car you have sitting at home, that is because they all began life that way – as a stock vehicle just waiting to be turned into a racing machine! The Pure Stock division is intended to be the most affordable division at CNS and is governed with the novice driver in mind. Once a driver wins a championship in the Pure Stocks, they are no longer eligible to compete in the division.
The AC Transmission Legends are 5/8 scale replicas of the famous NASCAR Modifieds that were driven by the early heroes of the sport. They are powered by small 1200cc motorcycle engines that propel these tiny machines around the track at speeds much faster than one would expect. Fans love the wheel to wheel racing action of one of the largest lineups at CNS every summer.
The CNS Bandoleros are designed for our youngest drivers – ages 8 to 15 years! They feature 30hp motors, full roll cares and other safety features, and are a fun and safe way to introduce young drivers to the sport of auto racing. There are two levels of Bandoleros – the Bandits are younger and new to racing; the Outlaws are for more experienced drivers who aren’t yet old enough to take control of one of the more advanced CNS divisions. The Bandoleros race on the CNS ROVAL – a combination road course / oval – and have raced in that unique configuration since their introduction in 2018.
There is nothing like the excitement and energy that builds at CNS every time the Witthar Racing Crazy Trains take to the track! Three cars chained together – the front car has the motor, the middle car is a dummy, and the rear car has the brakes – will see two drivers work together to try and navigate the CNS crisscross figure 8 course through the infield for a 7 lap battle to the finish! Smashing, crashing, and mayhem define this unique fan favorite – the crazy trains!
Picture this – you want to run in a demolition derby, but the goal isn’t to be the last car standing – it’s to be the one to smash your way to the front and be the first to cross the finish line. That’s demo cross! Build one tough race car or truck, and then come out for a few laps of full contact racing with spin outs, roll-overs, and full-on destruction while every driver tries to muscle their way to the front. Just for fun, CNS adds in some dirt jumps, banked turns, and a few other obstacles to ensure that there isn’t a single boring second of racing. It’s racing like you’ve never seen before!
