Racing a cop is a horrible idea usually, but surprisingly there is a time and place for it in Colorado.

“Take It To The Track” returns to Bandimere Speedway for its 19th season today (April 26th). Drivers of legal age will be able to race a Colorado State Patrol Trooper down the quarter-mile track at Bandimere Speedway in Morrison.

The drag racing will happen every Wednesday from 4 – 9 p.m. through Oct. 11. There are four Wednesdays when racing will not take place. Those dates are:

  • June 14
  • June 21
  • July 12
  • July 19

“Street racing is a dangerous game with lethal consequences. That’s why troopers are happy to donate their time to these weekly events,” CSP Sgt. Bonnie Collins said. “Drivers of all ages can bring their friends, race each other and even race a trooper – we don’t mind ‘losing’ as long as the racing is done legally and not on the public roadways.”

“The Colorado State Patrol Take it to the Track events are the best part of our summer as we truly value the opportunity to make an impact in the community and in the lives of so many individuals,” Bandimere General Manager Sporty Bandimere added.
