A piece of history that is now gone forever. A very, very sad day.

Yea, That is a shame. Too much motorsports history to wipe out. Should have been declared a historic site.

I was in that building a few times when I was a teenager.
I bought some hi-performance parts for my car there. I remember the Nickey sign, you could see it from the highway.
