“This classic race will be held at the Woody Creek Raceway courtesy of the Aspen Racing and Sports Car Club,” Aspen Cycling Club President Mike Maple said.

Access to the track will begin at 5 p.m. There will be no access earlier.

The track is approximately 1.1 miles in length with gently rolling terrain and seven corners.
