GLENCOE, AL (WBRC) -

The checkered flag has waved for the last time at the Green Valley Speedway in Glencoe.

The land has been reportedly sold for residential development and demolition of the bleachers is set to begin next week. Part of the agreement is that racing stops permanently at Green Valley.

The speedway dates back to the 1960's and hosted the "Bama Bash" event every year.

An employee said the speedway closed because the owner was ready to retire.
