CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. (WWBT) - Chesterfield County is hoping to buy the shuttered Southside Speedway, which closed in December after 60 years of racing.

The county wants to spend $5 million for the roughly 41-acre site and use it to expand the nearby River City Sports Complex.

The Board of Supervisors will meet on June 23 to talk about allocating the money to make it happen.
