Should have added that if the circus was the reason the track stays there, it was going away sooner than later anyway. The Palace isn't going to remain in operation as a competitor to the Little Caesars Arena.
I however suspect that the reason the track stays in place is that whole Orion plant thing was done with taxpayer subsidy. It's likely that if the track is removed before some date, the taxpayer money would have to be refunded.
The community I live in, like others has given subsidies. A few of those companies left early and since they didn't meet the terms, were required to repay at least part of the subsidy.
