COLORADO NATIONAL SPEEDWAY ANNOUNCES EXCITING CHANGES FOR 2011
We will host a Monster Truck event on Father’s day, Sunday June 19th. Along with the Monster Truck Show we will also have a points race for a CNS division (to be determined) in a combined Sunday afternoon show, following the regular scheduled Saturday night event.
CNS will once again be offering online-ticket sales on our website at www.coloradospeedway.com. This feature will be available for all 2011 events within the next few days. In addition to on-line ticket sales we are introducing the “CNS RACE CASH” gift card. This gift card can be purchased at the speedway business office and can be used for the purchase of tickets, concessions and novelty items at the speedway wherever credit cards are accepted. These gifts cards will make a great present for all of the race fans in your life!
COLORADO NATIONAL SPEEDWAY ANNOUNCES TRANSPONDERS FOR 2011
The Ownership of Colorado National Speedway is excited to announce that we have finalized a deal to utilize the MYLAPS Transponder system for our scoring and line-up processes. Effective for the 2011 race season each competitor at Colorado National Speedway will be utilizing a transponder during each racing event.
Our competitors have asked for this improvement for several years and we are happy to be able to bring this new technology to our facility for 2011. The transponders can either be purchased at a cost of $425.00 each through the speedway or rented for $40.00 per event. If purchased through CNS the transponder will come with an 8-year graduated warranty.
CNS appreciates that this is an added expense and sincerely hopes that our competitors and fans appreciate that this technological improvement is certainly a benefit to all. Every attempt has been made to keep the cost of this new improvement as low as possible, while providing the best system possible. We are eager to implement this new technology and look forward to improved accuracy and a more streamlined scoring process.
One of the great features of this program is the ability for each competitor to track their individual lap times both during practice and race events through mylaps.com.
Attached below is a request form to be completed for each car/truck. Please Email or fax as soon as possible to the CNS business office.
Fax# (303) 828-2403.
We will have this program in place for our first practice event scheduled for March 19, 2011. Guidelines for mounting and placement will be forthcoming.
The correct transponder for the system we will be using at CNS is located here. Yet, keep in mind that if you buy the transponder directly from CNS you will save over twenty dollars, pay NO SHIPPING, and get a 8 year warranty.
Transponders will be mandatory for the following divisions: Late Model, ProTruck, G.A. Modified, Sportsman, Super Stock, Legends, Modified Coupes & Super Modifieds.
Figure 8's and Trains will not utilize the transponder system.
NOTE: The red AMB/Mylaps transponder that they use at Cheyenne WILL work with with the new system at CNS.
