Houston Raceway Park Question

I was recently told by a friend of mine that Baytown, Houston Raceway Park Drag Strip is going to be closed down and demolished because it didnt bring in enough money these past few years. Is this for real ???

I cant imagine them doing this... such a great track and so close to Houston.

i don't believe that at all, there are too many "big" events that take place there, i don't see how they could lose so much money.

Thats what I was thinking as well... I cant count how many NHRA races I have attended at that great track.
