That's unfortunate for all the teams who race there and spectators who attend. Presumably the driver development track expansion must allow them to bring in more revenue than the half mile oval?
Have they ever considered the idea of adding a new (optional) loop for the main road course, comparable to "the boot" at Watkins Glen, to allow for the possibility of a longer layout that might provide a less crowded track for a large field, as may occur next year with the USCR? It could also provide a second pit lane.

Lets not forget that the turnout there this season has been pretty bleak, oval racing is dying, and may as well close them up asap.

People eventually see through all the gimmicks ovals use to make it a race, glad to see another one gone and more road racing facilites being added.

Not too many folks get to work by just turning left!

@ above comment!! Tell that to the 75 million fans that enjoy Nascar racing in the USa on oval tracks, there is nothing better then sitting in the stands at a course track and seeing a car go by then watching it on a screen for the next 2 minutes.
