Natural Bridge Speedway Ownership Changes Hands...
The ink is still wet on the deal that will transfer ownership of the historic Natural Bridge Speedway from current owners, Larry and Karey Ramsey, to GW and Tish Fitzgerald. After eight years of owning and promoting Natural Bridge Speedway, the Ramseys are stepping down as owners.
Those that support Natural Bridge Speedway are some of the most loyal and dedicated in the business, we are all like family. Karey and I have enjoyed our time at the speedway, but this opportunity came along, and we felt it was best for us to step down. We want what is best for everyone involved and we have always wanted to take Natural Bridge Speedway to the next level. Owning and promoting a racetrack is a huge undertaking that requires a tremendous amount of time and energy. In order to get to the next level, we felt we had to find a new owner. We think we have found the right people to take Natural Bridge Speedway and racing in the Shenandoah Valley to the next level,” stated Ramsey.
We ask that both the fans and competitors be patient with us this first year. We have a schedule complete for Eastside Speedway, but now that we have purchased Natural Bridge we will need to make some adjustments. Though this may be confusing initially, we believe everyone will be pleased with the end result. Larry and Karey, their sponsors, and their employees have done an outstanding job at Natural Bridge. We look forward to working with them to make this a smooth transition for everyone involved, including the community surrounding the speedway. The 2013 seasons at both Natural Bridge and Eastside will have something for everyone. This is a win-win situation for all involved,” stated Fitzgerald.
