ERIE, COLO. (June 4, 2005)- Inclement weather blanketed the entire Denver area Saturday forcing the postponement of the Auto Trader 150 NASCAR AutoZone Elite Division, Midwest Series combination event at Colorado National Speedway. The event has been tentatively rescheduled for Sunday afternoon with gates opening at 7:00 am and racing beginning at 4:10 pm.

History at Colorado National ... Both series have raced at Colorado National Speedway, located 25 miles North of Denver, since the early 1990s. The Southwest Series has made 12 appearances there while the Midwest Series has raced at the track on eight previous occasions. The Auto Trader 150 marks the first time that these two series have raced together in a combination event.

Winning drivers ... 10 different drivers have won in the Southwest Series at Colorado National. Three drivers who have each won two events at the track: Auggie Vidovich (with wins in 2000 and 2001), M.K. Kanke (1997 and 1999) and Rick Carelli (1992 and 1995). In the Midwest Series, Steve Carlson is the winningest driver with three wins (2000, 2001 and 2002). Carelli, incidentally, also won a Midwest Series race at the track in 1991, when it was known as the ARTGO Challenge Series.
