A local speedway is closing its doors for the upcoming racing season.

Onaway Speedway has decided not to open for the 2016 season.

The owner says the plan is to raise more money and add a figure-eight track to the facility to offer new events.

He says other speedways have opened in the area and attendance was down.

The plan is to reopen Onaway Speedway for the 2017 season.
