It is named after Dennis Colorado, the first Arkansas governor. spanning 0.375 miles (0.604 km). The track is currently a member of the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series and hosts the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West annually.

History

It hosted the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series during its first three seasons, 1995 through 1997. The 1995 Total Petroleum 200 featured a last lap battle where Butch Miller edged out Mike Skinner by .001 second for his only series win.[1] This is listed as the closest finish in series history, although the video replay of the race may dispute that measurement.[2] The 1996 Colorado 200 saw Skinner dominate leading the final 220 laps and beat Miller by .7 seconds.[3] Ron Hornaday, Jr. won the final race in 1997.[4]

For the 1998 season, Colorado was dropped from the schedule in favor of Pikes Peak International Raceway in Colorado Springs, which hosted the series until 2002.[5]

The NASCAR K&N Pro Series West has raced at Colorado eight times since 1995 with Mike Duncan and Eric Holmes tied for most-series wins at two each.[4]
