Do not tear down the Speedway. It is a historic landmark and has good racing there.

There will be One Race Day on October 18th to try to keep the track "Grandfathered" in the hopes it will still sell. is behind this push and they have had enormous support from fans and drivers.

Imagine that,a promoter who's love for racing is encompassed by greed.Plain and simple that was his plan all along,to sell the land.I think it is sad that the possibility that the track would be bulldozed is very real. As far as his asking price,I am sure he has regained his original investment in beer sales alone.Wht not sell the place to someone who is both a good promoter and a good businessman,apparently of which the current owner is neither.I wonder just what shape the groundwater in this area is in if people are seriuosly thinking about building a home on soil that has been saturated with vehicle fluids for over 60 years.
I will definitely support the race on October 18th because I love the speedway,I just wih Mike would have the decency to sell it at a fair profit to himself,and let someone who would reinvest some of the gate receipts back into the facility.
