The owners of Gateway International Raceway announced Wednesday morning that it will be ceasing all operations at the Madison track.

In a press release issued that morning, Denis McGlynn, president and CEO of Dover Motorsports, said the company is “simply unable to operate it with an acceptable return.”

This ends several months of speculation about the track’s fate that started when Dover Motorsports officials announced the track would not be seeking any NASCAR races for the 2011 season.

In the release, McGlynn said the company has been in discussion with several potential buyers.
