The National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) and the Bandimere family have jointly announced that the 2023 Dodge Power Brokers NHRA Mile-High Nationals (July 14-16) will be the last NHRA national event at Bandimere Speedway just outside of Denver.
The Bandimere family has agreed to sell the current property and land in Morrison, Colorado, but plans to relocate the historic NHRA-sanctioned drag strip to another location in the Denver area, officials said.
“Our family has been involved in the automotive business for the past three generations through parts sales and machining, individual racing competition, industry innovations, and the operation of our speedway in the beautiful Colorado foothills,” said John Bandimere Jr., second-generation track owner and operator. “We have been blessed to occupy one of the most unique places in our state and feel that our commitment to the sport is not done yet. It’s part of the fabric of our family’s life, and we’re hopeful that another equally unique location can be found to continue the legacy that was started by my parents over six decades ago.”
In addition, the NHRA leadership team has announced discussions with current NHRA member tracks not currently on the NHRA Camping World Drag Racing Series circuit to host future national events, including replacing the Denver date on the 2024 schedule.
NHRA and the Bandimere family invite racers and fans to be part of the last NHRA Mile-High Nationals, July 14-16. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit the Bandimere website here.
