The move comes the same day Jefferson County Public Health announced legal action against the speedway following a large event earlier this week.
JEFFERSON COUNTY, Colo. — The family that has owned and operated Bandimere Speedway in Morrison for decades has filed a lawsuit in district court requesting that various public health orders put in place at the state and local level since the coronavirus pandemic began in March be struck down as unconstitutional.
They’re also asking for an injunction to prevent the measures from being enforced.
The suit filed late Thursday names Gov. Jared Polis (D-Colorado), Dr.Jill Hunsacker Ryan, the executive director of the Colorado Department of Health and Environment (CDPHE), and Dr. Mark Johnson, the executive director of Jefferson County Public Health (JCPH) as defendants.
Thirty-one health orders put in place are being challenged.
