The Monterey Herald is reporting that local government officials in Monterey are in negotiations with the International Speedway Corporation (ISC) over a “potential concession agreement” to operate Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.
The track and its associated facilities are classified as a county park and have been operated by the nonprofit Sports Car Racing Association of the Monterey Peninsula (SCRAMP) since the iconic road course opened in 1957. The Herald says county officials confirmed that the county “has been exploring options for the management of the raceway to ensure its long-term success.”
Founded by NASCAR founder Bill France Sr., ISC operates 13 racetracks in the U.S., including ovals and permanent road courses.
