Toyota Speedway at Irwindale Announcement:
Irwindale Speedway made ​​the announcement today at 1:30 pm - "The management of Irwindale Speedway, announced today that the 2012 racing season was canceled."

Is this all there is? In fact, after over 12 years of involvement in the racing community, ASA, NASCAR, USAC, Lucas Oil Modified, etc., etc., that is? What has been repeatedly hailed as the best short track in the country and one of the elected NASCAR, the giant half miles with a whimper?

No real sign of the WHO, what, where, why, when, how?

I called the powers that be in Irwindale. I through it, but I have not had a single person, I have a ". To leave a voice message"

I do not blame the people involved in making decisions that might prevent a deluge of phone calls? Not really. Draisines However, brokers have built, decisions, sponsors promised. No, Irwindale Speedway, I owe them nothing, they had signed contracts, except maybe not owe them more information.

If this is the case, either a temporary or permanent closure, I want to thank everyone who helped make the circuit and all that keeps things moving volunteers to paid staff.

The racing community has had many happy times there. If this happens, it will not be forgotten. The loss of this track, plus the loss of the race at Orange Show Speedway (San Bernardino, California) in the same season, is a blow to competition, not only in southern California, but to the west and race as a whole.
