Layne retires as track co-promoter


WHEELERSBURG, OH-The Southern Ohio Speedway would like to announce that T. J. Layne has made the decision to retire as a track promoter and has sold his part of H&L Motorsports, LLC to Don Harmon. Layne will however remain at the speedway doing PR & marketing work.

“This has undoubtedly been one of the most difficult decisions that I have ever had to make,” stated Layne. “It’s been a decision I have struggled with for a couple of years now. I love the sport and love Southern Ohio Speedway, but the stress and aggravation of being a track promoter has continued to take a toll on me, to the point to where it’s just not healthy for me to have that stress in my life anymore.”

“I support Southern Ohio Speedway 100% and am excited to stay involved doing the public relations and marketing work. When I got started in the sport back in 2003, it was doing PR work. This will allow me to get back to enjoying the sport and still stay involved doing the type of work that I really enjoy doing. I am looking forward to being at the track Friday night in this new role.”

“I cannot thank Don Harmon, Robbie Harmon, and the Harmon family enough for the opportunity to of partnered with them in the speedway. I’m extremely blessed to of had the opportunity to of been a promoter for 10 years and to do many of the things that I have dreamed of doing in this sport alongside the Harmon family.”
