    Before things got so developed, one of my favorite bike rides was to ride out highway 7 to the I-25 frontage road and take that north. I remember there being a race track, right next to the frontage road, some distance north of highway 66. Possibly east of Berthoud or, even, Loveland.
    I was wondering if it is still there and what the status is?

    I think I know the track you are talking about. In doing research the name is a bit confusing for a few reasons but I believe most people just called it “Mead” (as it is located east of Mead, CO). I think the official name was Continental Divide Race Park which is confusing as there was another track south of Castle Rock named Continental Divide Raceway back in the 60’s. I also think the track was originally named Mountain View, and sometimes referred to as Mountain View, however this is also confusing as there was a drag strip not far away in Erie also known as Mountain View.

    Basically, I am not sure the exact name, but I think it is one of those lol.

    The track closed in 2005 due to the citizens of Mead, CO opposing the track. You can still see it and the bridge over the track from I-25 on the northeast corner of I-25 and highway 34. Is this the track you are talking about?

    Some links and info:

    It would be great if it could be brought back, but not likely.
