The Columbus Dispatch • Monday February 1, 2016 5:09 AM

Columbus Motor Speedway publicist and co-owner Jeff Nuckles confirmed tonight that the Village of Obetz is close to purchasing the 48 acres on which the track sits off Williams Road.

Nuckles said that the track and village have agreed in principle to a price and that only approval by the village council is needed for the deal to be completed. The council’s next meeting is Feb. 11.

The village is interested in the property in order to expand Memorial Park, which is south of the one-third-mile racetrack. The Columbus Crew has a practice facility on the premises.

Nuckles, who owns the track with his brothers, Jerry and John Nuckles, said there will be 24 weeks of racing in 2016. John Nuckles opened the track for motorcycle racing 69 years ago. The Nuckles felt compelled to announce discussions of a possible sale on Facebook “out of respect for the competitors."

“We were getting so many calls saying everybody was talking about it," Jeff Nuckles said. “I know I haven’t slept in a week. This is heart-wrenching. This is so hard. I have some special events in mind to make it an epic final season."

Nuckles said building a new track at another location would not be feasible financially.
