Was at Island for T&T today - lots of rumors about E-town. Just posted this in TOBT:



Heard a new rumor while at Island today, apparently the neighbors around Raceway Park are now scared of the 24x7 big rig truck traffic CoPart will bring, so the town is not approving the variance or whatever they need to store cars.

The same rumor said they guy who is behind the Z-Max tracks wants to reopen the Raceway track or perhaps buy it - no word on current status.

Fingers crossed.

Doubtful but who knows. I would bet the family would rather sell the entire place to developers and run away with hundreds of millions. But I could be wrong.

Hundreds of millions? Lol. What exactly do you think they have there? A diamond mine?

The property at that location is worth quite a bit of $$$, 30 mins from NY etc, Im sure its worth at least 100 million for the 500 or so acres they own.

5 miles and 11 minutes from atco and everyone in the know is saying numbers are down. Not from what the expect with the extra E-town peeps but overall comparison to the last couple years.

It's about 400 acres. With IAA leasing 100 of it for the next 10 or 15 years. An airport (which the track owns) that they might be able to close if they decided to. Don't think the housing market is there right now to sell the property, but by the end of the IAA lease if the Liberals and Democraps haven't destroyed the country that property may be worth a good amount of $$$.

Not sure how true it is, but I deal with IAA everyday with my job and I heard rumblings that Raceway's insurance carrier was dead set against them having the vehicles on the property due to the environmental impact -with fluids leaking on the ground.

Just a show. No pickups either. Monster Trucks, yes.

Funny how all these rumors about the track re-opening float around after 30 years of rumors of the track being sold......

People really have nothing better to do with their spare time I guess.

Going to be hard to race there with no equipment left.........
