Grattan Raceway is for sale. The owners built the track waaaaay back when (mid 60’s?) and want to get out from under it. It’s a fabulous, old school facility and deserves a new owner who WON’T turn it a golf course or condos. Grattan’s not famous but it’s a kin to Summit Point, Blackhawk Farms, Hallett......non pro, family run, great tracks with lots of charm and character. 
 
Truth be told, it could use some TLC and a couple of suspicious fires upon purchase. The buildings need to go so they can be replaced by new structures without leaky roofs, real power, etc.

Well, if I was retired and had a few extra million $ laying around I'd make the call.

 

Seems like Ford, GM, or FCA should own a track. 

 

I suppose something like this is valued like any business based on earnings and on that basis it might not be all that expensive unless the land value is greater?

 

Hopefully a good buyer/operator emerges.

I wish had put together the money to by TWS when it was for sale. 7.5M is a bargain considering how much it costs to build a new one. Now we are down to 3 usually tracks in Texas.
