Colorado State Patrol Tells Street Racers ‘Take It To The Track’

Street racing is illegal and can be very dangerous, but doesn’t seem to stop thousands of teen drivers with a need for speed from doing it.

The Colorado State Patrol is now inviting those speed demons to “take it to the track” and race legally at Bandimere Speedway, instead of doing it in on public Colorado streets.

Take it to the Track was created by the Colorado State Patrol, Bandimere Speedway and the Alive At 25 Defensive Driving program to allow Colorado teen drivers to make good driving choices and let them take their need for a rush to the track. The CSP is the first state law enforcement agency to create a drag racing series for teens. 2010 is the seventh year that the Take It To The Track program is being offered on Wednesday evenings between April and October to provide a positive alternative to street racing. The program provides teens with a safe, legal and fun environment in which to satisfy their need for speed.

The Wednesday night events began this past week and continue most Wednesdays through October 6th. The races happen at Bandimere Speedway located at 3051 South Rooney Road in Morrison.

Gates Open at 4:00 p.m. and the program is open to anyone with a valid Colorado driver’s license. Participants pay a $30 entry fee at the gate, spectators pay $10 and children 12 and under get in free with a paying adult.
