Promoter closes Baer Field Speedway for the season, future uncertain

Declining attendance, social media criticism led to decision

Wednesday, July 2, 2014 - 5:18 pm

An early-afternoon posting Wednesday on Baer Field Speedway's website announced this weekend's races were cancelled and more information would follow.

A few hours later promoter Jon Raney announced he is cancelling the rest of the 2014 season, and ending his association with the track leaving its future uncertain.

``I don't want to go through this any more,'' Raney said. ``The main problem is the decline of attendance for the grandstands and a lot of that is due to the racers tearing down the place on social media. I build up the facilities, and the racers don't reciprocate it to me. It's just a negative weight for me.''

Raney said social media attacks have poisoned the atmosphere among the racing community. Program director Bob Koorsen said no amount of advertising can make up for a negative post to racer's 500 friends who are the target audience.
