NHRA stays in Denver, while other venues leave...

The NHRA Mile High Nationals stay while we've lost the International and CHAMP Car Race, due to lack of sponsorship.

We lost Busch Cup and IRL because Pike Peak Raceway was sold. Also mentioned in the same article was Rocky Mountain Speedway, which hosted a yearly World of Outlaws event.

So, we've lost a PGA tour date and four touring major sanctioning body races, but NHRA drag racing continues to have staying power here in the West!

Just a few thoughts from the WinterNationals

  • I like the ticker floating across the top reviewing what happened in previous rounds
  • Way too much focus on Ashley Force and showing her dad hugging over and over again...I like her and I know it's a big story, but the first few events I want to see the new sponsors and paint schemes and this was left out
  • I know it's rough out there, but how do major funded teams like Kenny Bernstein, Del Worsham and Clay Millican fail to qualify?
  • Why did so many fuel cars go up in smoke? Was the track that green?
  • One thing that is cool about the first few events is that anyone can win...most teams take a few races to gel, even tho they have been together for several years...witness Tony Schu. losing in the first round...
