Belleville, IL – October 27th, 2014 – Belle-Clair Promotions, LLC has elected to end their promotion of Belle-Clair Speedway effective immediately. Below is the info posted on Belle-Clair Speedway’s Facebook Page earlier today.
Regarding the article in the sound off section of the bnd (Belleville News Democrat) I doubt seriously that the track will close. While I don’t see weekly racing continuing I do believe a combination of Midget/Micro racing and some Stockcar Specials may work if the parties involved can play on a realistic plan.
What is true is that my Family & I have decided to give up our fight to keep the track flourishing. Belle-Clair Promotions LLC will be dissolved while we deal with the debt left behind. We threw an absurd amount of money at it the last 4 years. The track has struggled basically ever since the competition invaded Friday nights splitting up the Fan base.
While I am sorry we cannot continue I think we brought a lot of Great shows to the Fans and did some Awesome tributes for some of our Favorite members of our racing community.
I would like to Thank my Wife, Family, all the Fans, Racer’s, Crews & most of all the Awesome Sponsor’s for all the Great support.
