SPEARS Southwest Tour Series Returns to the Rocky Mountains in 2020
Bakersfield, CA — For the first time in over a decade, the SPEARS Southwest Tour Series will make the trip to the newly paved 3/8-mile Colorado National Speedway (CNS), just outside of Denver. The teams of the SPEARS (SRL) Southwest Tour Series will make the trip to the Denver area on August 15th of 2020.
Colorado National has one of the toughest fields of Super Late Models in the U.S., so it will surely be a battle between the teams of the SPEARS Southwest Tour Series and the local contingent of standouts who call Colorado National speedway their home track. Former CNS Track Champion and 2014 NASCAR K&N Pro Series West Champion Chris Eggleston, three-time and defending track champion Darren Robertson, two-time track champion Dominic Ursetta and nine-time track champion Bruce Yackey are a few of the top contenders at CNS.
“We always try to keep an eye on the travel costs of our teams, but we felt like it was time to make the trip to Colorado National”, stated the SRL’s Larry Collins. “Back in the day, the NASCAR Southwest Tour always made an annual stop at CNS, and it was always a battle of the locals versus the touring teams, so we expect the same high level of competition, not to mention that we will be racing in front of a packed house.”
The 125-lap event will have a break on lap 75 for fuel and adjustments, and a competition caution will be displayed on lap 100.
Promoter Jim Nordhougen states that Colorado National Speedway is long overdue for the return of the SPEARS Southwest Tour Series. Week in and week out, race fans in Colorado are treated to some of the finest short track action in the country at Colorado National Speedway. “The ultra-competitive Super Late Model Division features the highest caliber side by side racing on the newly repaved racing surface, and the local talent couldn’t be more excited to showcase their skills against some of the best tour racers in the country” said Nordhougen. “The August event guarantees fans a chance to witness top-tier talent in a 125-lap showdown; however, mixed with the strategy necessary to navigate the competition caution and halfway stop, this is truly a race that could go to anyone.”
