As ChumpCar is running its first event at High Plains, I will unfortunately have to use footage shot during a race from the competing 24 Hours of LeMons race there in 2011. This is onboard with the Colorado Cone Killers' E28.

As with High Plains above, this is ChumpCar's first trip to Calabogie and it's also the first crapcan race at the track. So here's a trackday video of user "GTwagon" flogging a Subaru Forester XT around the track.
