Well if you have not heard the Pontiac Silverdome was sold for a whopping $580,000 last week in an auction to the highest sealed bidder! A Toronto based company won the bid. The city of Pontiac tried to back out of the sale as they had offers just last year for 20 million but dragged their feet on approval. A judge ruled this week that the $580,000 deal stands. Bad for Pontiac, hopefully good for motorcycle fans! All the past plans to tear down the 25 year old facility are flushed! IMO this is good news for any motorcycle fan in southeast Michigan! The company from Toronto that won the bid is an entertainment company. I am hoping that they can/will bring the Supercross back! My family started going to Supercross races at the Silverdome in 2001. When they moved the races to Ford Field in Detroit attendance dropped dramatically! Sadly, no one wanted to go to Detroit to watch. After two years of suffering in Detroit the lack of room for pits was given as the reason for pulling the plug on the Supercross in southeast Michigan. We miss it! Now I am hoping we may actually have a chance to bring racing back to the fans here, I know there are many! April just isn't the same without the Supercross! We have 12-15 friends, family, and riding buddies that make a day of it with lunch before and dinner afterward! Sorry to be longwinded I am just glad we might have a chance at seeing Supercross back in Michigan anyone feel the same? Let's hear from you!
