“It is with a heavy heart and a lump in my throat that I’m announcing effective April 4, 2021 [that] Arizona Speedway and ET Motopark will cease operations,” Jonah Trussel said in a Facebook post. “The Arizona State Land Department has decided that the facility and noise it produces does not fit into their neighboring development plan and no further negotiations will be had. As per the agreement, we will continue with events for the next few weeks and conclude [on] April 3rd with the last dance. ET Motopark has been part of the Motorsports community for 20 years and Arizona Speedway has been part of that same community since April 2011. We have held thousands of motocross practices and events, nearly 400 dirt track events, more than 100 mud bog and sand drag events, and a long list of other events and functions that we are proud to be part of.

“Through the facility, we have met hundreds of thousands of fantastic people, fans, racers, and now friends from all over the country. Our staff members and tremendously supportive sponsors have been instrumental to our success. Along with them, our patrons, fans, racers, event partners, which have become friends, sanctioning bodies, and MX riders were key in taking us from dirt hills in the middle of the desert to being able to become a large part of what will now be Arizona racing history.”

The track will feature IMCA Modifieds, Sport Mods, Stock Cars, and Bombers on Saturday, March 20th. Then, on Sunday, March 21st, the track will host motocross.
