Unfortunately, there is only one official NASCAR Speedway in Colorado. There’s one place in the entire state where you can watch the skills of talented drivers being tested, cars engineered for racing, and the waving of a checkered flag. Fortunately, Colorado National Speedway is approximately 20 minutes away from Legacy High School. Buckle up and prepare for an adventure.


About CNS

A family friendly speedway, Colorado National Speedway consists of a quarter of a mile track paved in asphalt. Established in 1995, it hosts the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West annually and is a member of NASCAR’s Whelen All-American Series. On a regular race night, multiple different models are raced respectively, ranging from stock cars to “train cars”. Special Event Nights are scheduled for holidays, such as Father’s Day Super Sunday Monster Truck Show. Figure 8 races are sometimes hosted and after the race night is over, fans can walk across the track to the pit to get autographs from their favorite racers. Overall, a great way to spend your night!



Colorado National Speedway is located in Dacano and can be reached through taking Exit 232 on I-25. As mentioned before, it takes approximately 20 minutes to arrive form Legacy High School. The official address is 4281 Speedway Blvd, Dacono, Colorado 80514.



The typical racing season at CNS begins in April and ends in October. Races are usually on Saturdays and start promptly at 6:30 PM, ending somewhere near 10 o’clock (approximately). However, races are not always at this time, so you can check the 2018 Schedule on the Colorado National Speedway website.
