Very long story, and there are rumors that it may be for sale since Alex is getting up there in age. It's also been rumored that with his brother owning the land next door, and half the land that the track's on, it could never be sold and continue to be a track if anything happened to Alex. Well, his brother passed away last year and the family has it, so know one knows. In my opinion, if you wanna make any more passes there, get down there and do it, because it's only a matter of time....

Alex and his brother George, who was the co-owner of the track hadn't spoken in many years. When George passed away, his daughter became the owner of the property her Dad George and Alex owned. She wants nothing to do with the track and wants the place closed. How this will all play out is anyones guess. If anyone was thinking of buying the track, I hope they have a bus load of lawyers to sort thru this mess.

Alex and his niece have been talking and the track has been surveyed but like Andamo said there will be some checking to do because the track does have a lot of resistance from the township and Alex,s family all we can do is keep our fingers crossed,I have more fun there than anywhere else it has such a family atmosphere,

Skip, that's good that the lines of communication between Alex and his niece are open. I wonder why the township is is having resistance ? Possibly from homeowners in the area concerned with the noise ?
You're right, there is a lot of that family fun atmosphere at Sunset. The first time I ever was there was Easter Sunday in 1961. The place was packed and cars were waiting on Charleston Rd. just to get to race. I always liked the Thursday night racing when Alex had it. It was like T&T night before the racers hit the track at Sunset and Drag City for the weekend.

Yeah Dan nobody wants sunset to stay open more than me but the township has fought Alex only to loose on the grandfather clause but I don,t know what happens if the deed leaves the Theofolis name. When I moved up here in the early nineties sunset was the first track I raced at and I loved it the crowd was so friendly and Alex was so laid back. It reminded me of summerduck dragstrip in Va. just smalltown racers having fun . The big tracks are nice but the little hometown tracks are always the most friendly.

Maybe someone needs to look into registering Sunset as a historical county site. I see lots of old buildings and barns having that designation. I don't know the particulars behind it, but maybe it's worth a shot.

I know what you mean about the feel of the small tracks. Last year was the first I was ever at Norwalk, and although the pits were nice, the place had a coldness to it. I'll take Magnolia, Sunset or Steel Valley over it anyday.
