2018 is Rocky Mountain Raceway's final season

WEST VALLEY CITY (News4Utah)- Rocky Mountain Raceway, formerly known as the Bonneville Raceway, will be wrapping up their final season next year.

The venue located in West Valley City was sold to Freeport West in 2014. Part of the agreement was a five-year lease for racing operations to continue. That lease expires at the end of the 2018 racing season.

In a statement released Thursday, General Manager Mike Eames said the venue has come to mean more than just a place to race cars and motorcycles.

“Since this venue opened, so many memories have been made here. Life-long friendships have been created. People have met here through racing, developed their own love story, and are now married with children. If the Young Automotive Group didn’t create this incredible place, none of those memories would have been possible. We look forward to creating as many new memories as possible during our 2018 season.” Eames said.

The raceway opened its doors in 1968. Over the years NASCAR stars like Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Kyle Busch have competed on the track.

The company is inviting the public to enjoy the last season. For more information visit  http://rmrracing.com/.
