This Weekend’s Pick: Fast Times in Dacono


Nothing goes better with a Saturday evening than watching buses race around in circles. Oh, that and a cold beer, pretzel and views of the mountains.

The Colorado National Speedway in Dacono is in full season now, offering a near Nascar environment just east of I-25 to go along with the aforementioned goodies. This Saturday, the bill included the High Performance Chase, featuring a series of races including the always popular bus competition.

It’s as funny as it sounds.

The track is 3/8ths of a mile, meaning the races are fast and the action passes the grandstand frequently. We wrote about the experience last year—it’s a true family outing. The kids love it just as much as the parents and true race fanatics.

High Performance Chase, 6 p.m. May 17, Colorado National Speedway, 4281 Weld County Rd 10, Dacono. Call 303.828.0116.
