You may be interested to know that it hosted some great names in racing: Carol Shelby raced there with the USAC Road Racing Championships. In 1968 a race called The Rocky Mountain 150 was held there, attracting Mark Donohue, Dan Gurney, and Peter Revson.

Les Gaylord Award

This award was originally given to the Gaylord Family in 1992. Racing has historically been a family affair. We all know these members who are at the track with parents, siblings, sons and daughters in tow. It may be a family crewing for a driver or a family full of volunteers.

He was well respected in all SCCA circles, he loved sports cars and sports car racing and enjoyed officiating and social events. He gave of his time to the club as a volunteer and as an attorney. The award was started in his honor in 1996. It is a service award, meant for an individual who donates their time for the club.

William Bradley Award

At the request of several RMDiv members, a new Traveling Award was commissioned in 2018. The William Bradley - Ambassador Award will recognize members that act as ambassadors of good will in all areas and specialties for the Colorado Region.
