Victory Motor Sports has brought sports car racing back to La Junta. The Sports Car Club of America, Denver chapter, held races here last weekend. Speaking for the club, Anna Christian said, “We love La Junta. The people are friendly and the facilities are nice.”

Several commented, “This is the best shape this track was ever in.” Allan Lasater said it is a really big thing the SCCA is back at the track, because they are nationwide, the biggest sports car racing sponsors in the country. They haven’t been here since the early 2000’s, but they kept the track busy in the ’80’s. Another event is planned for Oct. 14 and 15 this year, and the club has asked for three events next year.

The next planned event at the track is La Junta Raceway Drivers Club on June 3 and 4. Thrillbilly’s is back as the caterer for the track.
