FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
May 10, 2011
Maryville, Tennessee – The staff and management of Smoky Mountain Speedway has announced the temporary suspension of operations effective immediately. No timetable has been given when the track will re-open. Since the 2011 season started, car counts and fan attendance has been down at the 4/10-mile facility. As the weather has improved in recent weeks, it was hoped attendance and car counts would rise. This has not been the case. The staff has decided to take the time to re-evaluate the situation and map out a strategy where to go from this point forward. When any decisions or announcements are made, those plans will be posted on the track’s web site at www.smokymountainspeedway.com as well as the track’s Facebook page.
