Default SAVE SACRAMENTO RACEWAY PARK!

THE IMMINENT CLOSURE OF SACRAMENTO RACEWAY PARK

Drag racing fans...the land that Sacramento Raceway Park occupies is up for sale. There is an active listing for this property by Paul Frank, 916-714-8012 for $11,000,000. The listing boasts that the property is approximately 200 acres, home to Sacramento Raceway Park, and available for M1 Land Development.

As many of you may know, Dave Smith and his family, owners and operators of Sacramento Raceway Park, have been fighting the county for many years to keep Sacramento Raceway Park operational. Unfortunately, as of 2020, it looks as if the track may be nearing the end of its battle due to the county's planned residential and commercial development of the area. According to the Smith family, it is for this reason ONLY that the family has put the land up for sale.

But, why sell the land and not just the business?

According to the Smith family, the county will not allow the sale of the business to another owner. In fact, as we have been told, as soon as the business or land changes names, then operation of Sacramento Raceway Park must cease.

As of March 30, 2017, Nor Cal Drag Racing has written a letter to Dan Nottoli, Board of Supervisors, Sacramento County. In this letter we have asked Dan a series of questions regarding past or future public hearings, the planned land use, the 2020 operational deadline, and about plans the county has to protect the health and safety of the community from illegal street racing when the dragstrip closes.

Fuck Komiforina!!

Decent track. Hard to stop progress however. Too much money to be made

With the imminent demise of Sac Raceway, how many tracks does that leave in CA?

Near Sacramento is Sonoma (awesome track) and Redding. There is also Samoa (remote and not that great), Bakersfield (good) and Fontana, Barona (1/8th) and Pomona down South

I raced Redding recently. Nice folks. Track surface was okay. Facilities were sparse... I'd go back. Pretty sad that in a state with like 20-something million people there are so few tracks....

You're not gonna save it. Kaliphornya and its "leaders" absolutely HATE motorsports of all types. Too many liberals that hate everything in front of them.
The county is wanting all that development money, they are not going to let a noisy drag strip stand in their way.

And out of that 9, one is closing (Irwindale) and Pomona is for NHRA only. It's really sad

Redding is my home track. It's gotten a bit better over the past few years. I like it just because it's a fairly small track with not a terrible amount of people but looks like things might be changing if Sac goes. Ran at Sacramento a couple times and wasn't really impressed. Sure it's a bigger place, more stuff around, paved pits but with that comes what I hate most, people LOL

Not dogging Redding at all... I had a good time. The gravel and dust drives me freakin crazy, but I'm always appreciative of a place to race.
