Last year was a hectic one for Bandimere Speedway in Morrison, Colo., outside of Denver.

The track was in an ongoing battle with officials from the Jefferson County Health Department about having to be shut down because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Fast-forward and John “Sporty” Bandimere III said the speedway is moving full-speed ahead with its 2021 schedule.

“There is no mask mandate in Jefferson County, Boulder County and the Tri-Counties for outdoor spaces,” Bandimere said. “We’ve told people we have published our full schedule of events we have planned, and we are running our schedule as normal.”

Colorado Governor Jared Polis stated recently Colorado will be moving away from the dial system as a mandatory guidance by April 16, which may mean no variances will be required for the July 13 Major League Baseball All-Star Game in Denver and businesses and event centers will be able to operate at full capacity. 

The capacity of Coors Field, the home of the All-Star Game is 50,398.

Bandimere Speedway is 20 minutes from Denver. Bandimere Speedway has been hosting races for 64 years. The Bandimere family executive team runs the speedway.

The 2021 Mile-High Nationals are scheduled for July 16-18. The 2020 Mile-High Nationals were canceled for corona virus pandemic-related reasons.

Sporty said the Street Outlaws No Prep Kings race scheduled for April 16-17, has been moved to Oct. 1-2.

“They shifted their entire schedule, so race was moved to Oct. 1-2,” Sporty said.
