“Racing for over 50 years”
In 1958, John Bandimere, Sr. purchased a parcel of land on the west side of Denver, along the Hogback at the foot of the Rocky Mountains. He and his family began the process of constructing a small but efficient drag strip that was to be used to augment their auto parts business. It also was the fulfillment of a dream of John Sr.’s to provide a safe environment for young people to learn about cars and race them off the streets. Now, following the 50th anniversary in 2008, the only thing at Bandimere Speedway that has not changed is the facilities location. Nearly every original building has been replaced, including the original spark plug-replica timing tower and the event schedule has grown nearly 10 times its original size to host a variety of specialty events, including the Mopar Mile-High NHRA Nationals. Already boosting Colorado’s economy by more than $18 million each year, new events are continually being added, and expected to draw more out-of-state fans and racers.
