The Ridge Motorsports Park Announces New Ownership Group and Management Team. SHELTON, Washington (October 3, 2014)

The Ridge Motorsports Park announced today that a new ownership structure and management team has been put into place, effective today.“Today is a great day for The Ridge” owner Joe Manke.

“We have finally concluded the ownership conflict and receivership, and now we are ready and excited to once again move forward in a positive direction with the tremendous potential of this project. This day has been a long time coming and we are extremely grateful for the loyalty and patience of all of our customers and friends”.
