We Did It!

Welcome to the 2022 racing season! Not only did we all experience a challenging 2020, but we knocked it out of the park in 2021 with our racing season. In this case, “we” means everyone who supported us and spent their summer with us as our season returned to its full pre-2020 schedule of events.
“WE” means our supportive sponsors as they partnered with us to provide some remarkable exposure and incentive programs for our racers throughout the season. Our marketing department’s creativity in customizing packages for any size budget provided new opportunities and enhanced existing programs at the same time.
“WE” means the racers who showed up each time we opened the gates for testing, series racing, and specialty events. Full pit areas and staging lanes were a sight to behold at events, and the energy could be felt as everyone reconnected with their racing family.
“WE” means the fans and guests who filled the parking lots and grandstands during the April-through-October racing season – some new faces and some familiar ones enjoying a day at the races in the beautiful Colorado foothills. The return of the Dodge // SRT Mile-High NHRA Nationals in July provided a weekend of high-powered racing at “Thunder Mountain” for our resilient fans.
“WE” means our dedicated full-time and part-time staff as they welcomed guests to the speedway at each event, including the “Christmas In Color” drive-through light show that follows the regular season of racing. Our employees are our greatest asset as they return each year and even bring friends or family with them to join the team.
“WE” stands for so much more than just us, the Bandimere Family. It stands for anyone who joined us during the 2021 season and WE’re looking forward to seeing everyone again in 2022 as WE all do it . . . . again!
Keep It On the Track,
