There will be a reception afterwards in the same church. It would tremendously help our family out to do a pot luck for the reception. Attached is a Google doc to sign your name & anything you can bring. (See Randel Whites FB page). We don't need much, just a few things for everyone to snack on & drinks during the reception. The link may only work to edit if youre on a computer, if it doesnt work on your phone please message me to add you to the list. During the service we will have an open mic time for anyone who wants to speak, so please come with any memories, stories, poems, or anything you'd like to share about Brandon. In lieu of flowers, we would so very much appreciate grocery or food gift cards for our family, or if you are able to spare anything at all, please donate instead to the gofundme links we have shared. There is one to help support my family, and one to support Savanna and Adriana. Please do not feel obligated to donate or bring anything, we just hope you all can make it out to celebrate such an amazing young man. Thanks again to everyone for your love and support❤

Dear I-25 Speedway racers, employees and fans,
As many of you know, I have stepped down from my position as race director for this upcoming season. I have faith in Mike Lippincott and Chris Cullen to continue to lead this racetrack in the right direction. But before I left, I wanted to share my thoughts and gratitude to all of you.I want to thank you all for the support you showed me, and for the passion you’ve shown toward the betterment of the racetrack. And I want to thank Chris Cullen for the opportunity to give back to the racetrack I love, as well as for believing in and trusting my input.
I enjoyed my time as race director at I-25 Speedway these past three years. I prided myself in being fair, approachable and professional because I truly care about the drivers, the employees, the fans, and the sport of racing. I-25 Speedway has been a home away from home for me, just like it has been for many others.
But as much as I enjoyed spending every summer Saturday night with you, I have chosen to step away this year to spend more time with my family and to spend a little more time back in the driver seat.
I hope you all continue to support our local racetrack because, as we’ve seen and heard about from around the country, local tracks are struggling right now to stay afloat. It will take a collective effort from all of us to ensure I-25 Speedway remains a part of our lives and our children’s lives for decades to come.
Sincerely, Charlie Wilson

It is with GREAT pleasure the addition of M.L Bechtelheimer "Beck" as I-25 Speedway's booth announcer.
M.L Bectelheimer, better known to his friends as "Beck" has been a racing fan for more than 50yrs. His love for racing began at Pikes Peak Speedway in Colorado Springs in the mid and late fifties, as a spectator, at the 1/5th mile paved oval whichshow cases racers from Pueblo, Colo. Springs, & Denver.
After Pikes Peak Speedway had been closed for a few years, Beck was asked to be a racing judge when it was to reopen in 1962. Thinking this was a way to get to see the races without paying, he quickly jumped at the opportunity. He had no dreams or aspirations of doing anything but judging and watching the races from the best seat in the house. Then one night late in the season, the owner of the track, Jack Sager, came to the booth inquiring, where is the announcer? It is time for the Anthem and the races to start. No one had an answer, so Sager moved the microphone in front of Beck and said "Here you do it" and he left the booth. Not realizing what was about to transpire and with little or no preparation, Beck wrapped his hand around the mic with a very nervous and weak voice he began to speak. More than 50 years later and hundreds and hundreds of races and literally thousands of introductions, Beck still has his hand wrapped around the microphone as he gives play by play, lap by lap coverage of the action at I-25 Speedway, in Pueblo Colorado. Over that 50 years plus, Beck has announced races for 14 years at Pikes Peak Speedway, Sportsmans Raceway Park, 12 years at Colorado Springs International Speedway, 25 years at Beacon Hill Speedway, and El Paso County Speedway. He also enjoyed doing radio coverage for the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb for 39 yrs.
Beck has covered drag racing, mud drags, motorcross, off road and oval racing at CSIS. He announced Speedway Bike Racing at Rains Raceway and he was teamed up with the Hall Of Famer recipient Jerry Van Dyke announcing the inaugural NASCAR races at PPIR in 1997.
Beck's priorities, over these 50+ years has been to make a HERO of every competitor to his or her crew, family, fans, and sponsors, and to provide the fans with information on every driver as to their racing accomplishments and even to their aspirations of becoming more than just a local entry.
Beck is also very excited about giving racing coverage to the children and even, grandchildren, who have pursued a racing career as their parents and grandparents did and Beck has helped to promote them through the years since 1962.
Every race night at I-25 Speedway will be Beck doing his thing with his microphone to help the greatest sport in America, AUTO RACING! 50+ years and still going strong!

We realize this is not an ideal way to start things and we apologize immensely for the very short notice. However, we know
that we have drivers that will be or are going to take advantage of thepractices in Denver to begin their season. With that
said, we have had some concerns, comments and the like come up and we would like the opportunity to address these with these
two classes as a whole. This weekend is the only weekend we can have these class meetings without interfering with CNS practices.
We understand it is not very much notice but we think we can all agree that time is passing us by faster than any of us realized.

It is with great pleasure that we introduce Hathway Performance as our Official performance parts retailer and supplier for the 2016 race season. It is our belief that with HP's fast growing client base and I-25 Speedways need for on-hand spare parts during our racing events we can both help one another expand each others businesses.
It has been mutually agreed upon that Hathaway Performance will offer their mobile parts trailer each weekend that it is not at El Paso County Raceway. We will attach a schedule that has the dates highlighted.
We are excited to bring Mike Hathaway and Hathaway Perforance Parts on board for 2016.
