DENVER, CO— One of the nation’s premiere car and motorcycle top speed racing events, The Colorado Mile, is returning to Front Range Airport this Labor Day Weekend, September 2-4.

Colorado Springs native and current top speed record holder, Pikes Peak Racing’s 2012 Charcoal Nissan GT-R will be back with full determination to break their own record of 246.1 MPH in one mile. This year The Colorado Mile will be featuring the World’s Fastest Street Legal Bagger (type of motorcycle) competition put on by Denver local Road Skulls V-Twin Performance and Quaker Steak & Lube. If you love fast cars and motorcycles, seeing them up close and in action, then you don’t want to miss The Colorado Mile. Also returning is award winning broadcaster, Kurt Hansen and his Motorsports Media Group. “We will help make this event, a ‘must-attend-and-compete-in event’, making it a unique Motorsports event in the United States, North America and maybe the world,” said the former driver and current Motorsports insider.
To get the full Colorado Mile experience bring out the whole family, rent a golf cart and cover the event from Start to Finish. You will see Lamborghinis, Porsches, Chevrolet Corvettes, Dodge Challengers, Ford Mustangs, BMWs, Harley Davidsons, Suzuki Hayabusas, and even a racing RV!

From early on I was always bombing around the neighborhood on some kind of home built go kart or minibike. So working on motors and bikes came naturally. As well as things electronic or technical. I was also an avid skier and instructor. If I can make something go fast by either propulsion or gravity, I am in. Yes, I freely admit to being a bit of an adrenaline junkie.
