Colorado’s I-25 Speedway Latest Addition
Whelen All-American Series Racing Comes To Pueblo
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – NASCAR’s presence in Colorado has doubled with the addition of I-25 Speedway to the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series weekly racing program for the 2015 season.
“We’re pleased to welcome I-25 Speedway as the newest member the NASCAR family,” said George Silbermann, NASCAR’s vice president for regional and touring series. “The thrilling competition each and every week that I-25 delivers to fans in Pueblo will be a great addition to the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series program.”
I-25 is a quarter-mile asphalt oval located on the north side of Pueblo. The track, which originally opened in 1963, is two hours due south of Colorado National Speedway, a longstanding Whelen All-American Series facility in Dacono.
Established in 1982, the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series is NASCAR’s national championship program for weekly short track auto racing. Competitors at nearly 60 paved and dirt tracks throughout North America vie for track, state and province, and overall series championships in Divisions I-V.
"This is a great opportunity for our drivers, the fans and staff here at I-25 Speedway,” said Chris Cullen, owner of the facility. “I am very proud to be a part of it.”
I-25’s first night of NASCAR-sanctioned competition will be Saturday, May 16. Super late models will be designated NASCAR Division I at I-25 while the Grand American modifieds will be Division II, sportsmen Division III, street stocks Division IV and mini stocks Division V.
Dan Alamaa is the reigning track titlist out of the super late model division.
Connecticut-based Whelen Engineering is the series’ title sponsor. Whelen Engineering is a leading manufacturer of automotive, aviation, industrial and emergency vehicle lighting. NASCAR tracks and pace cars across North America and Europe are among the many showcases for Whelen products.

There will be a service for Ilise White next Friday, February 13th (she would get a kick out of the date) at South Suburban Christian Church in Littleton, 7275 S. Broadway, at 1pm... We will have a reception there after for those of you that would like to stay, and ask that anyone that is able to please bring a tiny dish or snack as it would help our family tremendously to not have to figure out catering for the reception. Please bring any pictures you have with her, as we want to have a collection of pictures to look at during the reception. She always told all of us that when she goes, she wants us to be happy that she lived such a great life, she wants us to celebrate her life, not mourn her loss, and remember those good times with a party. Please come with good memories of her so we can fulfill her wishes.via the white famliy

January 23-24, 2015:
I-25 Speedway representatives will be at the 27th Annual Colorado Oval Track and High Performance Trade Show and Swap Meet!!
You can register for the 2015 racing season (which will save you $50 if you register before April 1st), you can pick up our new 2015 racing schedule, and ask any of the representatives any and all questions you may have about the upcoming racing season.
The trade show is being held at the Boulder County Fair Grounds in Longmont, Colorado, inside the main exhibit building.
We hope to see you there!
The rules package put forth at the beginning of the 2014 season is valid for three years, 2014-2016. This was done at the majority of the racers requests to have a rule package that doesn’t vary, so that you don’t have to alter your cars and spend valued resources to be legal.
In addition, track management has listened to the majority of racers who desire more clarification of the current rules. So, that’s what we are doing by giving the racers the “more clarification” that they have asked for.
The most notable things you are going to see in the clarified 2015 Rules are:
-Structure and uniformity to the written rules from class to class, which makes the rule book easier to follow for racers and officials.
-Deletion of redundant rules.
-Deletion and clarification of contradicting rules.
-Rules that may encourage non-local racers to race with us and further our car-count going forward.
Therefore, build your cars or repair your cars based on the current 3-year rules that you requested. If the rules say you were allowed to do XYZ in 2014 but NOT in 2015, that still applies to the written rules.
As you can see, we are listening to you, the racers, in balancing your requests. We look forward to a great 2015 racing season.

Sept 9, 2014 -Two champions decided by Mike Bible
Mike Simpson was able to seal the deal to take home the 2014 Mini Stock Championship! It was a close points battle between Simpson, Trampus Deutsch who finished 2nd in the standings and Mark Delaney who placed 3rd in points. All of these drivers faced more than a little adversity during the season. Remember that back in early July a rare crash in qualifying took out both Simpson and Delaney. Trampus Deutsch sadly was forced to miss some racing after the unfortunate passing of his Mother in late June. Congratulations to all of these drivers and their supporters for their tenacity and dedication.
Stacee Payne is officially the 2014 Hornet Champion. Stacee flat dominated the competition in the early part of the season with four main event wins. Along with that and her steady strong finishes, Payne brought the title home in her rookie year! Pat O’Lear finished second in standings. Also a rookie, Pat trailed Payne in points but impressively racked up six quick times and four trophy dash wins this season. Keegan Willy finished in 3rd for the year, only ten points behind O’Lear.
Results / Standings are now posted.

Randel and I want to give a huge thank you to all of the racers, crews, sponsors, fans, employees, and volunteers for their loyalty, dedication and support over the last 11 years. We will miss all of the friendships that we treasure dearly and to all the people that had faith in us from the beginning to see this facility mature into something very special for all to enjoy. The priceless memories that have accumulated over several race seasons will be cherished and held dear for many years to come. May the Good Lord Bless each and every one of your paths, which ever road you choose to travel.
