According to a Columbus Dispatch report, Columbus Motor Speedway may soon be sold to the Village of Obetz, a community nestled in the heart of Central Ohio.
The deal, which has been agreed upon in principal by both the track and village, will need a council vote to be approved. Columbus Motor Speedway will run its 2016 schedule in its entirety in an attempt to make it an epic final season at the historic short track.
“We were getting so many calls saying everybody was talking about it,” track promoter Jeff Nuckles told the Columbus Dispatch. “I know I haven’t slept in a week. This is heart-wrenching. This is so hard. I have some special events in mind to make it an epic final season.”
The Ohio short track, which was organized in 1945 by the late John Nuckles, is a staple for many regional touring series and hosts a NASCAR K&N East Pro Series race annually.
