"I wanted to make sure to take a moment to thank you for your amazing hospitality this past weekend for the Colorado Region Double Driver’s School.  Over the course of these three days, we truly felt overtly welcome at PPIR. It is with a smile of friendship that we’ll be returning thanks to you and your fine staff!" -Bob Melvin, President at coloradopen.com, on his SCCA experience at PPIR

"We had another good test session at Pikes Peak," added Smith. "The last time we raced in Phoenix we also tested at Pikes Peak and it was a huge benefit. We're looking for similar results this weekend. We really want to close out the season on a positive note with solid results in Phoenix and at the season finale in Homestead."(Nov 22)--Regan Smith (Motorsport.com: News Channel) on perparing for the next NASCAR race at Phoenix International Raceway

"We went to Pikes Peak (International Raceway) right after Milwaukee.  It drove just like my dad's track, the banking and shape of the track is similar to Iowa... .  It was a great test to prepare for Iowa."--Steve Wallace (SPORTING NEWS NASCAR WIRE SERVICE, by Tim Tuttle and Roger Kuznia, July 30, 2009)

"I spent Monday and Tuesday testing at Pikes Peak International Raceway in Colorado just trying to figure a couple of new things out.  I feel like we learned a little bit for Richmond and New Hampshire; we'll see if it helps. It's neat to go to a different track to see what that's like.  Pikes Peak used to host the Nationwide Series until four years ago. ... It's a beautiful facility... .  I think it'd be really fun to race there if NASCAR went back.  It seems you can move around a lot on the track." --Joey Logano documents his rookie season in NASCAR's Sprint Cup Series in an exclusive online driver diary for USA Today.

"[PPIR] was a great start to the rebirth of the SKUSA Mountain Region," stated Superkarts! USA CEO Tom Kutscher, who was in attendance on the weekend.  "The crew assembled here is second to none an the racers put on a great show on-track.  This race was just the beginning of what we see as the leader in regional racing for the area." --May 13, 2010, Championship Karting International LIVE
