Welcome to Colorado National Speedway
#95m Cris Muhler maintains only a small lead over #31 Rick Smith on route to a main event win.
(Dacono, CO - 10-15-2011) On one of the most entertaining race nights of the season at Colorado National Speedway #95m Cris Muhler battled side by side with #31 Rick Smith to take the Purifoy Chevrolet Championship Night I. However it was #74 Dan Savage that earned enough points to secure the 2011 CNS track championship in the Gillet Vet Late Model division.

(Dacono, CO - 10-01-2011) Sportsman points leader Lee Kemmit proved once again he is the car to beat in 2011 winning yet another main event. And while Rick Smith won the late model feature, point leader Dan Savage gained valuable ground on second place Bruce Yackey.

(09-24-2011 Dacono, CO) Chris Eggleston may have won the feature event at Snap-On Tools Night at the races at Colorado National Speedway but the real story was Bruce Yackey making up a few points on current leader Dan Savage setting up what could be one of the closest championship points battles in a long time.
(Dacono, CO - 09-17-2011) On Mike's Hard Lemonade night at Colorado National Speedway clean green flag racing was the theme in every division as Rick Smith took the late model main, Lee Kemmit won the Sportsman division, Kyle Clegg was first in the legends, and Harold Evans won the ERA Supermodified feature event.
Sportsman ace Lee Kemmit is a fixture in victory circle this year, Cris Muhler's mod coupe, and Mark Neff's Pro Truck also returned to victory circle. But it was the new faces in victory circle that stole the show on this night. John Humphrey won the Super Stock feature, Tom Evans grabbed the trophy for the Grand American Modifieds, and Jared "Wally" Wall found pay dirt in the Figure 8s.

Two weeks in a row Chris Eggleston from Erie Colorado has won both the late model and legend divisions at Colorado National Speedway. In the Late Model feature event with $4,000 going to the winner, Dan Savage did everything in his power to get by Chris Eggleston but had to settle for second place as young Eggleston had the fast line and took the win.

#22 Chris Eggleston started up front in the 40 lap Gillett Vet Late Model main event and quickly built a 10 car length lead over 2nd place #66 Darren Bucklen. #11 Darren Robertson and #27 Roger the "ice man" Avants battled for 3rd place yet eventually Robertson secured that spot and began to hunt down Bucklen. Last weeks main event winner #31 Rick Smith dove inside Robertson to move into 3rd place as Eggleston extended his lead to over a straightaway. By the end of the race Eggleston simply coasted to the finish as he had a massive 5 second lead over Bucklen who took second. Rick Smith was 3rd, Darren Robertson was 4th and #27 Roger Avants grabbed the final spot in the top five.
