Mike, have you heard anything about this? I read some info in a post in the Atlanta section of streetcarforums.com that the owner doesnt feel it is profitable and the NHRA lease is up this year and that the NHRA may be looking at other tracks in the SE. Rumor is that if it doesn't sale this year it will be a business complex by end of next year.

The latest news on this from 2 weekends ago is that it is not true. These rumors have been going around for a couple of years. Officially, the track is not for sale, they are not losing their NHRA date, and it will not be closed down. Let's hope that's true! I also hear that a new track is being built somewhere between Athens and Snellville but that is unconfirmed also. There is a new track in Valdosta. It is an oval and a dragstrip. Craig Armstrong formerly the manager at Commerce is now the manager at Valdosta.
