On Wednesday, Pulaski County celebrated a significant milestone as it received its largest donation to date. The Shelor Motor Mile, a renowned speedway located in Fairlawn, generously gifted the 152-acre facility to the county.

County administrator Jonathan Sweet expressed his excitement about the partnership, stating that they would work closely with Shelor Motor Mile to understand the racing industry and the financial aspects of the track. The donation opens up new opportunities for the area, allowing for events like five K races, high school sports programming, fundraisers, and other community activities that will benefit local residents.

The transfer also included Calfee Ball Park, which has been recognized as one of the best rookie-level ballparks in the country. Shelor Motor Mile will manage the ballpark for the next three years to ensure a smooth transition to county ownership.

County officials are optimistic about this donation’s impact on their broader vision for sports and entertainment in southwestern Virginia. They view this speedway and ballpark as critical assets that can help position Pulaski County as a top destination for professional sports and entertainment in southwestern Virginia. Shelor Motor Mile is investing in enhancing the speedway facility in preparation for the upcoming season, demonstrating their commitment to supporting the county’s vision for these facilities’ future.

In conclusion, this generous gift from Shelor Motor Mile represents a significant step forward towards achieving Pulaski County’s goals of promoting sports and entertainment in southwestern Virginia while also benefiting local residents through community activities and events.
