Thunder Road Raceway in Gillam has announced they are closing at the end of the month. Nelson and Marla Hoyos, who operate the facility, say they’re leaving due to disputes with the property owners.

The pair claim property owners David Strong and Roy Holis Witherington refused to pay for any repairs or upgrades to the track and lied to them about everything being in working order. They took the owners to court for a breach of contract. Ultimately, the two sides decided to settle and the Hoyos are no longer welcome at the facility.

Several races had to be cancelled due to the sudden change.

The Hoyos say they are working with the Shreveport Sports Commission and the parish to possibly build a new track somewhere in the local area.
