Medina takes third feature wins at Colorado National Speedway this season

Danny Medina started the evening with a quick time in qualifying with a 18.815 Saturday evening. From there he took home the Fast Dash Trophy and then went on to win the twenty five lap feature race. At times Chris Eggleston was on the rear bumper and could possibly have moved him out of the grove late in the race but elected to race him clean from where I was sitting. A great sportsman like performance. It was a great feature race last night as the first twenty-three laps went green. A short pause on lap twenty-three for a yellow flag and the race was restarted and went green, white and checker. The total race took thirteen minutes to run and it was a exciting race to watch as Scott, Clegg and Jones all were very close at times during the race. This was Danny’s fourth feature win of the season. He won another feature earlier this season at I-25 Speedway.

In the trophy dash Kyle Clegg started in the back of the slow dash and won pretty easily in the ten lap dash. He did sign autographs at intermission. Colorado National Speedway has changed their trophy format to all dash winners receive a trophy. I had been away from the track for several weeks and did not know what was going on or I would have built it up when the race was over.

I want to congratulate rookie Paul Himler in the #88 last night as he was listening on the Raceceiver and moved down and out of the way when the move over flag was shown to him. I am sure the lead drivers chasing the leader appreciated it.

There were twenty-two race cars on hand at CNS for the races. Thank you for supporting the races with your cars at the track. Cody Dempster is having some bad luck with engines. He put a hole in the engine block during a slow lap going around the track leading up to the feature.

Drivers I know that sometimes things happen on the track and you may possibly get very upset about it. Take your car to your pit and cool down. Cooler heads usually prevail.

The RMLRA will be in Gering, Nebraska and Cheyenne, Wyoming this coming weekend. We hope that you can make the trip to race. We can always use an extra car or two as the car count is pretty low at these tracks. Be sure to make motel reservations ASAP.
