    Sadly if this happens it will be turned into a huge fulfillment warehouse. The track will be gone.

    This will be a total screw job to the local Racers. Immokalee is a long haul from WP.
    Street racing incidents will skyrocket.
    Somebody said that Moroso still owns the track now. I would find it hard to believe that they would sell. Dick Moroso would never have approved.

    Moroso may still be involved but it is owned by "a group of local motorsports enthusiasts" according to their website.

    Edit: Rob Moroso died in 1990 and his father in 98. The family may still be involved.
