TULSA, Okla. – The Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series has announced plans to return to Colorado next year through a partnership with Joe Bellm and BST Promotions.

On May 27 the series will debut at El Paso County Raceway in Calhan, Colo., with Phillips County Raceway in Holyoke, Colo., following on May 28.

Last visiting Colorado¬†in 1998, Oklahoma’s Daryn Pittman found victory lane at Rocky Mountain National Speedway in Denver.

“It’s been a pretty rocky road around here with dirt track racing, but we have things really rolling well and we’re looking forward to having the ASCS back in Colorado,” said¬†Bellm.

“We have the facilities now to host events like the Outlaws last year, and now the ASCS next year and El Paso County Raceway is by far the nicest facilities in the state. We’ve lengthened the track as well as widened it over the past three years so it’s ready to go. Phillips County was actually downsized from a half-mile to a three-eighths and it can hold about 4,000 people and with all the upgrades there, these are the best facilities in the state so that’s where we’re going.”
