Fair board accepts letter canceling racing

WEST FARGO – The Red River Valley Fair Association board of directors officials accepted a letter Thursday stating a contract for auto racing at the fair’s Red River Valley Speedway will not be renewed.

Valley Racing Group, run by Danny Schatz, has operated the Red River Valley Speedway for three years.

Schatz announced at the end of August that he would not renew the contract. The current lease runs until Dec. 1. Fair general manager Bryan Schulz presented Schatz’s letter to not renew to the board Thursday. Schulz has said the RRVFA has no intentions of taking over speedway operations.
