    The article doesn't say they are closing the raceway...yet. It highlights the disputes between the site and the county. Hopefully the issues will be resolved with the raceway still in business.

    Cuz the big nhra race is the only One that matters and az is allowed to have? We can't have a competing venue, and a facility that, in all honesty, is a much nicer facility than the one owned and run by the native Americans?

    Firebird is still open, and so is Speedworld, according to their website.

    When I lived there a million years ago, there used to be a small strip out near Litchfield I believe. It was way out west somewhere. Is that one still around?

    I'd be suprised, but it was a pretty cool little track.

    Doesn't have the proper permits? Me thinks there can never be enough permits issued to make them happy and they would just create the need for more and more each costing some outrageous sum.

    Not to worry. Once cars just drive themselves as we know is coming, we would all cut perfect lights and hit our dial exactly so what is the point?
