From a press release issued by Carter PR on behalf of J.P. King:

SPOKANE, WA (Jan. 22, 2008) — Spokane Raceway Park — a 588-acre complex with a 2.5-mile road track, drag strip and oval track — will sell at auction Thursday, April 10, with J.P. King Auction Company managing the sale.

It looks like the whole property including the track is going to be sold. There is some hope in that a group of racers (rich SCCA guys?) are one of the interested parties. They are not accepting race reservations for next year, WMRRA have canceled their races at Spokane for next year. But it is possible that the races might be re-instated if the track keeps being used as a track.

This is one of the venues that the SRA races at, and I’ll be sad to see it go. Check out this video of a typical SRA race at Spokane and you’ll fully understand why.
