  Mr. PERLMUTTER. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize and honor John 
Bandimere, Jr. for receiving the West Chamber's Jefferson County Hall 
of Fame Award. This award honors outstanding individuals who have had 
significant and long-lasting impacts on Jefferson County's economy, 
community and legacy.
   For the past 60 years, John Bandimere, Jr. has been the driving 
force behind the successful Bandimere Speedway team as the second-
generation owner and operator of the quarter-mile drag strip that bears 
his family's name. The Bandimere family has always been in the 
automotive industry through manufacturing, auto parts sales, machine 
work, racing or other automotive-related businesses but they have 
called the beautiful Colorado foothills home for the past six decades. 
In 1958, his father and mother, John Sr. and Frances, founded the 
speedway west of Denver. Originally called the Safety Proving Grounds 
of America and built as a location for testing the limits of the 
automobile in a safe environment, the NHRA-sanctioned speedway is now 
known as ``Thunder Mountain.''
   John Jr. continues to be a visible figure at Bandimere Speedway as 
he provides encouragement and well-respected leadership to the staff, 
community and guests. Most recently, his official title became Chairman 
of the Board as well as CSO--Chief Spiritual Officer. John Jr. has been 
actively involved in the Jeffco community for years serving on multiple 
boards including, but not limited to, Guaranty Bank West Advisory 
Board, West Metro Chamber Board, National Hot Rod Association, 
Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Cherry Hills Community Church, 
Colorado Motorsports Hall of Fame Advisory Board and many others.
   Congratulations to John Bandimere, Jr. for this well-deserved award, 
and I thank him for his continued dedication to our community.
