Rumors have been swirling that International Speedway Corporation (ISC) is currently in talks about managing Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. Mazda Raceway is a 2.238-mile 11-turn road course located in the state of California.
With the potential change, there are some who do not agree, according to Auto Blog. The track, which is currently operated by The Sports Car Racing Association of the Monterey Peninsula (SCRAMP), hopes to continue their control of the road course. They’re so against it that they’re asking people to contact local representatives to block the potential move. However, the county is asking to see a change in administration.
The land the track currently sits on is owned by Monterey County. Questions arose after the track lost its annual MotoGP date due to issues with low attendance. While the county is looking for new leadership for the facility, ISC is one of the current frontrunners in the selection process.
ISC manages 12 NASCAR tracks located all over the United States. The corporation was founded by Bill France in 1953.
