County eager to lease Grays Harbor Raceway, seeking promoters

ELMA, Wash. – The Grays Harbor County Commissioners are hoping to open the gates on the Race track in Elma by early next year, but for right now, they’re under a red flag until they figure out what they own. County Commissioner Frank Gordon said last week “There’s some issues going on now about who owns which.” 
The commissioners canceled the contract with Great Northwest Promotions LLC in October, citing unpaid bills. Gordon said they have a more clear contract written up for future promoters. “So whoever we get in next we won’t be having this problem, but things are kind of on hold – their lawyer is talking to our lawyer.”
Meanwhile the county is looking for a promoter to lease the Grays Harbor Raceway “By the first of the year we’re hoping to get this leased to somebody so they can start working out the races for the summer.” Anyone interested should email contact information to [email protected] for details.
