As a side note just to clear the air, contrary to what certain drivers have been saying. The owners of the Punta Gorda Speedway are and have been since June of 2010 are Kevin Williams and Mike Chase. But the owners would like to thank Danny Yates Landscaping, Q Auto Injury Attorney, Allied Recycling, Bubba the Love Sponge, Muscle Car City, B & R Color, Perfect Pest Control and Legends Cars of SW Florida for presently being the only local businesses that have stepped up to help the Punta Gorda Speedway become more successful.
