TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now)- Pima County has started the process of taking bids for a new racing experience at the fairgrounds.
It's the vision of some people in the county's tourism industry to bring big-name racing to the Tucson area.
Just what kind of track, who would operate it and what the leasing agreement would be, are still up in the air but are privately being discussed.
The county supervisors met in executive session this morning to discuss the possibility of a new race track at the fairgrounds.
"There's a lot of aspects that need to be hammered out," says District 4 County Supervisor Ray Carroll. "It's a possibility I think we should continue to explore."
After the closed-door hearing, the supervisors voted unanimously to have staff put together a bid package.
"Motor sports are becoming more and more popular," he said. "Especially in the Sun Belt to provide racing year round."
