Hults Takes the Mother’s Day Late Model Opener
Dacono, CO – Colorado National Speedway Late Model Division
With only 7 laps to go, #42 Ronnie Hults surprised the throng of screaming fans with an amazing dash from a well earned 3rd position, to first place!
28 Late Models showed up for the big Mother's Day event. #12 Bruce “the Moose” Yackey, #31 Rick Smith, #27 Roger “the Ice Man” Avants & #54 Joe James Jr brought their A game to track as the top dogs in 2 intense qualifying bouts. When it came down to the 40 lap main event, the field had been thinned to 22 of the best Late Models in the Country.
#21 Mike Bowen took the pole with #54 Joe James Junior on the outside. Rick Smith and Avants sat pretty in row two with an eager Yackey inside row three.
On the first lap, Joe James Jr took an early lead only to be passed by Avants. Rick Smith vied for the lead but Avants kept him at bay. A spin out on the track resulted in a yellow flag and a double file restart. Avants maintained the lead followed by Rick Smith, Joe James Jr and Bruce Yackey.

CNS is Happy’s Place for the Season Opener
Pro Trucks#1 Happy Ferree finds the perfect line around the 3/8 mile track at Colorado National Speedway, taking a well deserved main event win.
Early on, #1 Happy Ferree and #07 Chris Leaf had a tight battle for the top spot. After an intense fender to fender bout, Happy pulled ahead for the lead, just barely holding off the ever approaching Leaf.
Through one yellow flag and more than a few field thinning black flags, Happy pushed the envelope and took a commanding lead. Leaf and #7 Adam Deines dueled heatedly for second.
