VIDEO UPDATE: Mid America Motorplex Goes to the Auction Block

By  | 

The racing complex located about 30 minutes to the south of Metro near Pacific Junction Iowa is set to be sold to the highest bidder.

In a release by Auction Solutions, after 12 years of hosting national level amateur and professional races, the owners want to be out of the business.

The racing facility is built on a 205 acre tract of Iowa farmland with approximately 180 acres of tillable land that is currently planted with soy beans. It includes a 2.23 mile asphalt road course and 1/8th mile drag strip. The facilities on this property include a multistory timing tower capable of simultaneous road course and drag strip operations.

The live on-site auction will take place on November 23rd of this year at 10 o’clock in the morning.

General Manager Jim Howe tells Channel Six News the current owner wants to turn over a new chapter in his life, but that shouldn't mean the motorplex will make any drastic changes. Including a disruption with Howe's 40 employees, most of whom work part-time.
