It cost more than $17-million to build in 1969, and now, for the second time in five years -- Texas World Speedway is up for sale.
No matter which direction you happen to be traveling, you'll quickly notice it’s quiet at the Texas World Speedway. Quite the unfamiliar sound coming from a track that is typically filled with adrenaline and countless fans ready to satisfy their need for speed. Catering to the fast and furious -- and the not so fast and furious -- the super oval is one of seven super speedways in the U.S.
Since hitting the real estate market in October, the future of the College Station landmark remains unclear. According to Holliday Fenoglio Fowler, L.P., a real estate firm offering debt placement, “The property can be acquired in whole, part, or as an ongoing concern. The owner will also consider a joint venture option."
While the price has yet to be disclosed, many are hoping the new owners will be waiting at the starting line with a new vision and full tank of gas.
Texas World Speedway sold in 2007 after the death of owner Richard Canole.
