  • I consider this place a second home. I have been coming here since I was as tall as the rear tires, and have been racing here since high school. I absolutely love the group of racers I have come to know as a family. My son who is just turning one jut got his first Bandimere experience a couple of weeks ago. The cycle is complete. Look forward to seeing the Bandimere family.
  • The mile high finals are one of the coolest things you can do in Colorado. Make sure you get seats on the west and definitely bring ear protection, regardless of age. Walking around the pits was really cool. Definitely recommend if you have the extra money to do it!
  • Truck fest was awesome this year and every year. Great place and experiences. Awesome to watch different vehicles going down track. Awesome place to be with family and friends and many more people. The shops have fantastic merchandise.
  • Everytime my family goes to an event at Bandimere it's a great time! So much fun and the way things are set up is great. Staff is very friendly. I love this place and recommend going to an event if you haven't ever been. ESPECIALLY THE MILE HI NATIONALS!!!! Thank you Bandimere family for always making every event great!
  • What a great place Bandimere Speedway is to hang out for the Labor Day Weekend. Had a great time and can't wait for the next racing weekend. Fun in the sun for everyone!!
