County files for foreclosure on Tatra race property, MANSFIELD The Richland County treasurer’s office has filed to foreclose on another portion of the former Mansfield Motorsports Park complex — this time seeking to recover $34,867 owed in back taxes by Tatra Management Corp.
The county prosecutor’s office filed the civil action Sept. 11 against the company, founded by Mike Dzurilla.
The 2.7-acre property purchased by Tatra Management in 2002 contains offices and facilities to build race cars.
The property, which has a listed address of 100 Crall Road, has been appraised by the county at a total value of $571,350 ($30,100 for the land and $541,250 for buildings).
If the taxes are not paid off and the property eventually is sold at sheriff’s sale, it would be the second of three portions of the property to go up for public auction.
Mansfield Motorsports Park (at first known as Mansfield Motorsports Speedway) opened in May 1999 on 140 acres where Mansfield Raceway had operated starting in 1959.
