I made the trek a few weeks ago out to Xenia, Ohio to enjoy one awesome Street Life Tour x US Drift weekend. The event easily packed out 5,000+ fans and packed out all the grandstands at the oval track and drag strip for this big event. Just days after the whole venue was packed out for a great race day the track seems to of closed down. The track posted this statement below on its website -
