The Monterey Herald reports that International Speedway Corp., which operates 12 tracks that host NASCAR Sprint Cup races, has declined to make a proposal on managing Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.
The newspaper cited Monterey County Supervisor Dave Potter with confirming ISC’s action. ISC has not offered comment at this time.
The county had been in a 90-day due diligence phase with International Speedway Corp., before any potential management agreement. The Sports Car Racing Association of the Monterey Peninsula has managed the 11-turn, 2.238-mile track since its inception in 1957.
Potter told NASCAR Talk in June that the potential three-year deal did not come with the intention that the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series would race there if ISC managed the track.
