I'm not sure of the name of the person that is actually leasing it, but Carl Bowser is involved as far as bringing the track and grounds back to life.

I was over to the track Monday and they have started to clean the place up and start some excavation going to go back to the 1/4 mile size it was originally

 

heard the person leased it for 10 years.

I saw a post about this on Facebook a few weeks back. If they are making it bigger it stands a chance of being successful. There are several small car tracks out here that are highly successful. They should consider running wingless 600s as they have really taken off At places like Kutztown, Bridgeport, Airport in Delaware, Linda’s, and Lanco. Linda’s and lanco still run them with a wing sometimes, but last week was 600 speedweek and they had huge car counts over 50.

Can't imagine the $$$ that would have to go into the place. Great to hear a iconic speedway may make a come back.

Who cares about the name?  They need a real sign to let people know it exists!
