Colorado Motorsports Hall of Fame

 

IMPORTANT NOTICE!

The Class of 2020 Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony originally scheduled for Friday, October 16th, 2020, has been postponed until October of 2021.

The Board of Directors of Colorado Motorsports Hall of Fame felt this postponement was necessary in the interest of the health and safety of our Inductees and their families and friends who would attend the event to support them.  There also remains the uncertainty about large group gatherings being permitted again by the date of the event resulting in having to cancel the event on short notice. 

The new date will be October 15th, 2021 at Infinity Park Event Center, Glendale (Denver)

 This was a difficult decision for the Board, but we intend to make the 2021 Induction Ceremony even more exciting and memorable for our Inductees who are waiting a year for their recognition.  Watch our social media sites for information about the Inductees and their contributions to Colorado Motorsports. 

 
WHERE: Infinity Park Events Center
ADDRESS: 4400 East Kentucky Ave. Glendale (Denver)
WHEN: Friday, October 15th, 2021
TIME: From 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm
