    At least since 1932 Colorado has been a part of motorsports. While not as well known as some other states - California or the Carolina's - Colorado has hosted many SCCA nationals, some professional Indy and NASCAR events over the years - and many amateur events with participation including almost all of the national marque organizations.

    Where in Colorado one might ask? Over 14 locations through the years:

    Denver Sable Speedway-
    3.3 mile long opened  early 1900's

    DuPont Speedway - Denver Co - May 29, 1932
    May have been the first asphalt track in the U.S.
    The track was once located 5 miles North/East of downtown Denver on Brighton Road, and operated from 1932 - 1941.
