NOW600 National Micros
NOW600 Mile High Region Releases 2021 News and Schedule
DRUMRIGHT, Okla. (December 25, 2020) - After three successful seasons of bringing the heart-stopping excitement of the 600 Micros to the Mile High Region, BST Promotions is happy to announce some exciting changes coming to the NOW600 Hi Plains Building Division Mile High Region in 2021.
BST Promotions would like to welcome Jeremy Lovelady, NOW600 Mile High Region’s Competition Director, and Brad Ernst, Tech Director of the series. Both will be bringing their experience and love of racing to help support the fastest growing series in the Tri-State area and its driver base.
“The 13-race schedule for the Mile High Region will be unique from other years as the series will travel out of state for its first points race since the club’s inception,” said Lovelady. “We really have a collaborative effort with other NOW600 Series and promoters in the area. I am excited to build off what former directors have done with the series and venture into new uncharted territory. I think the schedule we built is ambitious and reflects our efforts to provide drivers with the opportunity to chase a series championship and still be able to attend some of the higher-profile events that you see in micro sprints.”
The Mile High Region is unique as the tour has both wing and non-winged events throughout the season and will continue to expand the restricted class that has brought so many youth to the series which is pivotal to the long-term wellbeing of the sport.
The series will launch with a double header at the NOW600 Mile High Regional Series host track, El Paso County Raceway. EPCR in Calhan, CO will kick off the season on Saturday April 24th followed by a second points race during the day Sunday April 25th at I-76 Speedway in Fort Morgan, CO.
There will be one event in May as EPCR hosts the series on May 22nd. The series will lay dormant over the Memorial Day weekend as the NOW600 Desert Region takes the spotlight with a two-day show planned in Garden City, KS atop the always-fast Airport Raceway May 29th and 30th.
Two back-to-back Saturday nights will commence in June as I-76 Speedway hosts a non-wing race on June 19th. The second outing for the series will happen a week later Saturday June 26th as the winged warriors will face off at EPCR.
Airport Raceway, located just outside of Garden City, KS will host the series at their premier facility for the first out-of-state points race conducted by the regional series on Saturday, July 10th. This event will be the first of three in July as the series will visit EPCR on July 24th for a non-wing duel, and will close out the month at I-76 Speedway on Saturday the 31st .
August will see another set of back-to-back Saturday nights, August 21st at I-76 and August 28th EPCR.
As the season comes to an end, three exciting nights of racing will commence under the Mile High banner in September. Honor Speedway, Pueblo, CO, will host the first night of a two-night racing card on Friday September 10th. The second night will be held at EPCR on Saturday, September 11th as bragging rights will be determined between Colorado vs. Kansas, as the track also hosts the Garden City Mafia. The series will crown its champion on September 25th at EPCR.
