Mile High Dragway was a 1/4 mile dragstrip located near Commerce City, Colorado. The track was located on the site where Second Creek Raceway and Rocky Mountain National Speedway were subsequently built.
The track operated from 1960 until about 1977 when it was shutdown due the developing inadequacy of the shutdown area. It also operated as Denver International Dragway, Tower Road Dragway, Rocky Mountain Dragway and Thunder Road Dragway,
