Good day WCDW supporters ..

Remember, we are a membership facility ( 501c non- profit ) and as you well know, working very hard to keep smoke rolling at the facility .

This takes a good group of folks to operate on race days . We are always looking for volunteers. There are many ways to help if you are a volunteer. We do also have a base of part time employees that work very hard at the track .

We would like to extend opportunities to others in our fast paced location .

Good evening friends and racers of Western Colorado Dragway .

We would like to extend thanks to those who helped remove the damaged stands tonight . A good work group of about 10 folks made good time on the project . It would appear that a portion of the stands can be used for a smaller seating section .

A special thank you to Todd Butler with Old School Roofing for his equipment and skills with the movement of the stands . As well , thank you Nick for your trip up from Hotchkiss to lend a hand .

Good evening members ...

This coming Wednesday ( July 1st ) our member Todd Butler will be out with some big equipment to move the damaged stands . This will occur at approximately 5 pm providing weather is not an issue .

We will be looking for some good hand assistance. Interested parties could bring along extra large straps and possible hand tools . This will be a new task for us to accomplish and a bit of an unknown .

The insurance work on the stand is complete and we will proceed with the new replacements .

Thank you for your consideration .

A request is being sent to all today regarding Saturday June 27th ....

Drag racing at WCDW is a luxury for all of us . Participation is a luxury . Spectating is a luxury .

The ...” ASK”....

Given the environment that we are placed in , we ask all of you to adhere to our requests at the track . As a luxury, our privilege to participate rests in all hands on site .

When we provide a spectator the opportunity to visit . The responsibility rests with you to understand mandates of Social Distancing & Recommended face covering when around others outside of your personal group . Keep your distance and follow mandates .
Please, if you do not get into to spectate as part of our 175 person cap, do not complain . Please do not create a scene when the gate to the spectator side is sold out and closed . We want all of you but must follow compliance for the continuation of safe events .

Participants and crew, we understand the “new” of the facility and restrictions placed on you . Please abide by our expectation of social distancing & appropriate face covers as needed in a group . Your business location ( Pit Area ) can only accommodate the racer and Five Crew Members maximum.


We want to continue into 2020 as best that we can given our circumstance. We will adhere to mandates in accordance to County stipulation. “ANY PERSON” not following compliance will be removed by our On Site SECURITY and MANAGEMENT.

This becomes now your responsibility to help maintain what we have worked so hard to accomplish... racing in 2020 .
