Clay Valley Speedway Set For Auction On Saturday, October 19, 2019

Another racetrack has hit the chopping block. Track officials recently announced that Coeburn, Virginia’s Clay Valley Speedway is set to go up for auction on Saturday, October 19. A statement from the track cited lack of fan support and racer support as well as weather-related issues as the drawing forces behind the closing of the facility.

The track, formerly known as Lonesome Pine Raceway, operated as a paved oval for several seasons before closing in 2017. After a year of sitting dormant, the track was converted to a dirt surface for the 2019 season.

Clay Valley Speedway hosted their grand opening as a dirt track on Saturday, March 23, 2019, with a program that included Super Late Models, Late Models, Crate Late Models, Open Wheel Modifieds, Super Streets and Pro 4’s. Ultimately, the track hosted three racing programs with its new surface, with the last race being held on June 1. The final night’s program only saw a total of 21 cars enter the event.

The facility features a 3/8-mile track with a steeped, banked clay surface that is race-ready.

Additional track amenities include grandstands located on the full length of the front stretch, a three-story suite tower, and acres of lighted parking. Also included with the facility is a NASCAR-approved computerized scoring system, a modern scoreboard and LED warning lights, all installed less than a year ago.

A sound system, four-bay garage, office areas and more are also included. Ron Ramsey & Associates will oversee the auction which is set for 10:30 a.m. For more information, visit ronramsetauctions.com.
