Erie, Pa (March 7, 2015) - Lake Erie Speedway will operate with a “special event only” format for the 2015 Season due to unsuccessful attempts to finalize a sale to an undisclosed buyer. Negotiations for the sale of Lake Erie Speedway have been ongoing for months with the respective buyer and have progressed to the point where an agreement was made in principal, but that is where the process has stalled.
“Due to the prospective buyer’s inability to execute the transaction, timing does not allow us the opportunity to put together the quality weekly racing program that our race teams and fans have come to expect and deserve as a part of the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series and INEX,” said Don Prischak, Lake Erie Speedway’s co-president. “This new format will open up additional Saturday night opportunities for the speedway.”
The first scheduled special event is Crash-A-Rama featuring School Bus Figure 8 Racing on Saturday, May 30th. Monster Jam featuring Grave Digger will be in action on Friday, June 19th and Saturday, June 20th. A second installment of Crash-A-Rama will take place on Saturday, August 8th, and the Insane Inflatable 5k will make its first visit to the speedway on Saturday, September 26th.
Additional special events will be scheduled and announced throughout the season via www.lakeeriespeedway.com.
