Snapshot: Aztec Family Raceway
Aztec Family Raceway has been in operation since the early 1960’s. The track owner is Byron Wolf. Byron is a former Vail ski instructor and long-time motocross racer. He attends the World Vet Championships each year, getting good results.
Aztec has three race tracks (2 full-size and 1 for the Pee-Wees).
Aztec Family Raceway was once the home track for former factory rider Arlo Englund. Arlo raced AMA Nationals during the late ’70’s and early 80’s. He is one of only two riders to win a AMA National without a clutch. (He rode a Husqvarna 360 automatic.)
Two of the most recent National riders to come out of Colorado Springs & Aztec Family Raceway are Andrew Short of Team Honda and Josh Hansen of Team KTM. Andrew grew up in Colorado Springs, practicing and racing at Aztec during the early 1990’s. His father Howie Short has a family dentistry practice there. Josh and his father Donnie Hansen moved to Colorado from California in 1998.
