Perris raceway closing?

I just learned that Perris Raceway in Perris, CA, are closing their doors effective today. On their website it states, "Due to the economy Perris Raceway will be closing - effective today. Thanks for your support."

I hear that Pala bought it. So, it may open again after a change in management.

From Cycle news:

There's been a rumor circulating that Perris Raceway in Perris, California, has closed its doors, but these rumors are evidently false - sort of.

We just spoke to Vince Graves, the owner of the Perris Raceway property, and he said that the facility is alive and well, but the MX track is closed temporarily.

"The flat track and speedway track are open and operating the same as usual," Graves said. "The MX track is closed, however, but it's going to re-open in a couple of weeks, definitely. And it will be bigger and better."

Evidently, Graves and the current raceway "tenants," or operators, former Supercross and MX Champion Rick Johnson and former World MX Champion Sebastien Tortelli, are in the midst of a falling out, but Graves assured us that Perris Raceway, "Is not going anywhere."
