    I think the actual name was Colorado National Speedway. The person who built the track, raced some himself and was quite instrumental in Rick Carrelli's career. He stayed in racing for about another 15-20 years. I wouldn't feel right just blabbing who it was, but I got to know him when he owned Carrelli's team as they moved up the racing ladder.

    Hey , great video! im stoked to check this out. Any tips on approach? I see its just off the highway. Is it safe to park at the green gate? did you walk – if so, how far was the hike?

    I went to this track every Saturday night. They had some a great races there.I wish it was still there to race at. My family would still be there every Saturday night.

    That metal structure you were standing on, was the flag stand for the flagman so you were on the front stretch of the old CSIS track…

    That's awesome!  I'd love to discover something like that – it'd be like being a kid again! 😀

    So I guess that place only hosted the smaller meetings?  I notice there isn't much banking…  So the 'runway' was a drag strip?
