STATEMENT ON THE FUTURE OF SHOWTIME SPEEDWAY:
It was a crisp December day in 2011 when potential bidders first set foot on what was once Sunshine ?Action? Speedway. There wasn?t a lot left of what once was, but we all had hope to once again have a place to race.
Fast forward to July of 2012 when families packed the stands and cars roared onto the track - the track was back.
Now, in 2016 there has been a lot of speculation about the future of Showtime Speedway. As everyone has come to know, the FDOT project is back on and that was the whole reason the state purchased the property to begin with. In 2012 we were guaranteed five years with the possibility of more come May, 2017.
We have been in discussions with the FDOT and Senator Jack Latvala for several weeks. Today, we met with the Senator and he shared with us that the speedway is here to stay.
It is very difficult to plan for the future when there?s no guarantee that there is one. Today, that burden was lifted. Thank you to all the drivers and fans that support us, it’s SHOWTIME!
