Heartland Motorsports Park could shut down if Shawnee County’s appraiser won’t revise tax appraisal.

Owners of Heartland Motorsports Park say this could be the facility’s last season, refusing to pay taxes on an appraisal claimed to be four times the property’s value. Chris Payne, Managing Member, of HMP owner Shelby Development, LLC, issued a statement May 22, the day after Kaw Valley Race Group completed its latest SCCA Majors weekend.
