This race not only counts for Colorado points, but also Kansas points and National points and is sure to attract all the heavy hitters.
“The Colorado drivers have done a good job this year coming out to support the National shows in Kansas and I feel we’ll get a good bunch of Kansas region cars to come out and support them in their first ever National show in Colorado.” said Salem. The Saturday night feature will pay $1000 to the winner along with a minimum $200 just to start the 30 lap A feature.
