Mile High Sports partners with The Colorado Mile

DENVER, CO – Mile High Sports announced Thursday that it will partner with The Colorado Mile, a new-to-Colorado event coming Labor Day Weekend 2015.

From the group that has produced The Texas Mile, one of the most successful motorsports events in America, comes The Colorado Mile, which welcomes drivers of street legal sports cars, motorcycles,

trucks, and concept race cars. The three-day event features everyday people, as amateur participants, novices, and professional racers alike, all who share the need for speed, compete without fear of tickets or jail time. The concept is simple: Drivers line up and go as fast as possible for one mile. The goal? To set the fastest MPH record at the event, be the fastest car, truck or motorcycle in your vehicle’s class or simply achieve a personal best.

“We’re thrilled to partner with The Colorado Mile in its inaugural year in Colorado,” Mile High Sports president James Merilatt said. “The history and success of The Texas Mile paired with a rich auto sports tradition and fanbase in Colorado will be a formula for success.”

In addition to the group behind The Texas Mile, this “No Speed Limit” event will feature the Douglas Brothers, the group behind the 8-mile Pit Rally Gambler’s Edge. Locally, longtime host of Denver’s KBPI Morning Show, co-host of Pinks: All Out on Speed TV and Two Guy’s Garage, Willie B. will compete for a top speed record.

“It’s been a dream of mine to race at the one and only Texas Mile! To have the crew from Texas under their sister company, The U.S. Mile, team up with Pit Rally and create The Colorado Mile is absolutely epic,” said Willie B. “I plan on having something there to make my fellow Coloradans proud and give a few ‘out of staters’ a good challenge.”

Don’t miss out on your chance to challenge The Colorado Mile in your own vehicle and see some of the fastest vehicles in the country achieve their top speed in 1-Mile. Signup for entry will be available online beginning July 20, 2015 at 6 p.m. MDT. Spectators will witness racers going full throttle and get the chance to see the vehicles up close and personal.
