Two businesses currently using Walt Disney World Speedway, site of the inaugural Indy Racing League race in 1996, confirmed this week they must cease operations at the 1-mile oval by June 30. What happens from there hasn't been announced, but it's expected the facility will be leveled to procure more parking for the area south of the Magic Kingdom. The last race held there was in 2000.

Goodbye to the Mickyard. You never really succeeded as an event facility.
Between the expansion of the "hub" at the middle of the park and the periodically full parking lot, this is certainly the right thing to do. That's a totally strange location for that track.
Is this where they have the Richard Petty driving experience? That's one of the things I would like to check out at WDW...
Well you have until June. :)
^But I already booked my trip for August...
Guess I'll have to settle for the race experience at Watkins Glen that ways comes up on Groupon.
Go to any major race track in the US that also offers the Richard Petty driving experience.
