John Bandimere Jr.

Hall Of Fame Inductee — 2003

For the past 33 years, John Bandimere, Jr. has been the driving force behind the successful and popular Bandimere Speedway. Voted one of the five best race tracks in the country by Drag Racing Magazine, Bandimere Speedway has been the site of many national racing events and the host of the NHRA/POWERade Mopar Mile High Nationals for the past 24 years. John Jr. took over as president and general manager from his father, the Speedway’s founder, in 1970 and has overseen many improvements, including a $4.5 million renovation in 1988. Today, the Speedway hosts both automotive and non-automotive events for adults and kids virtually seven days a week. In 1998, John Jr. continued the tradition by passing general manager duties to a third generation, John C. Bandimere III, allowing John Jr. more time to focus on vital community issues and further promotion of the facility. John Jr. currently is involved with the Guaranty Bank West Advisory Board, West Chamber Serving Jefferson County, National Hot Rod Association, Fellowship of Christian Athletes State Board, Cherry Hills Community Church and the Colorado Motorsports Hall of Fame Board.
