Have you ever even ran a racetrack? Do you have any clue what it takes to turn a profit at a place like that? I'm guessing you don't.

Good friends with one of the local circle track owners, have been for 20 years.... had these discussions many times. Best thing a place like that, or in his case a circle track for comparison sake it's all the same is a successful attendance to your big events and good concession stand sales during these.

They needed a big event once or twice a month that would bring crowds. These days that's small tire stuff, big no prep events with some purses enough to attract the crowds of racers people wanna see... a lot of legwork and involvement and the $ is made at those..... not having hardly any of that stuff is a major reason that track didn't clear $ and that's all on the people running it. Sorry to say you need to be a promoter of your facility and have lots of big events.... all there is to it.
They didn't want to put in the work, that from my shoes, is root cause.
