Mid-Summer Bash

June 18th & 19th

High Plains Raceway

Parking and Load In

Gates will open for all participants starting at 3:30PM on Thursday, June 16th. The gate to the facility will be manned 24 hours after that time. High Plains Raceway (HPR) offers reserved parking for RV's and Carports. For more information on reserving an RV or carport, please visit the HPR website. Other than reserved spaces, please feel free to park in any open space. Please note, HPR is asking everyone to park in a North/South orientation, except where indicated on the paddock map.

Checking In at the Event

Everyone entering the track after 3:30PM on Thursday will be required to sign the waiver at the gate before you enter the facility.  HPDE and TT drivers will receive specific wristbands at your morning driver meeting. Drivers participating in Wheel to Wheel racing will need to go to the NASA Hospitality trailer to get your wristband from driver information. Your wristband is your ticket to get on track so make sure you get your wristband.

Friday Test/Tune

On Friday, the track will be hosting an open lapping day for any drivers wanting to get in more time before the event. NASA will make every effort to have timing up and running for drivers to ensure that their transponders are working. To register for for open lapping or more information on HPR's open lapping, please visit their website.


The HPR Cafe will NOT be open for the weekend. They will have ice, drinks and chips for sale, but no other food item will be available While we tried to get another food vendor to be on-site, we were unable to procure one on time for this event. Please ensure that you plan accordingly and bring what you need to the track. There is a General Store in Byers just off off of I-25 @ Hwy 36 if you do need anything.

Saturday Banquet

As is tradition for NASA, we will be hosting a banquet for all participants and their guests during which time we will also be presenting awards. We hope that you'll join us for the celebrations. After dinner stick around for some live music.

Tire Service

On-Site tire will be at the track on Saturday to see to any tire service needs you may have. If you need new tires, they can deliver to the track and mount and balance. Please help support our local service provider by using them for all your mobile tire service needs in the Denver area. Learn more about On-Site.

Transponder Rentals

All cars in Time Trial or Race sessions are required to have a functioning transponder. In addition, we do provide timing of cars in the HPDE3/4 sessions. We have a limited number of transponders available for rent. If you rented a transponder, they will be available beginning Saturday morning and can be picked up at driver information.

Car Tech

For those that did not have an opportunity to get your car inspected before the event, tech will be open on Friday from 1:00PM to 5:00PM, Saturday from 7:00AM to 10:00AM and Sunday from 7:30AM to 9:00AM. All race cars will need to have their annual inspection completed before their first session of the weekend.
