Sounds like it's only the end of Charlie Allen's era as leaseholder and not the end of Firebird Racewy.
I am sad to hear this. it was a great place to race and a great place to spectate. I have fond memories of watching the races in the mid and late 80's and myself racing there in '92. dependable weather is what I liked the most.
