Bandimere Speedway Will Host It’s Last Event In Morrison After 65 Years This Weekend

Oct 19, 2023, 5:03 PM


Denver’s only drag racing track, Bandimere Speedway, is in its final days of operation in Morrison before closing after events planned this weekend.

The track, which has operated on Thunder Mountain in the Rooney Valley since 1958, announced the impending closure of the site that opened 65 years ago, back in April. Owner John Bandimere, Jr. told the Denver Post this summer, “they’re building a lot of houses around us. But that’s not why we’re leaving. We really feel comfortable with why we’re leaving: We need more space.”

Bandimere has not yet announced a new location for future racing, he said they were considering sites near the Denver airport.

The final events planned for this weekend are the Halloween Spook-Trackular on Saturday (Oct. 21) and a “Test and Tune” event on Sunday (Oct. 22). Get details on both events here.
