Texas Motor Speedway president Eddie Gossage announced his retirement Thursday and will step down after the June All-Star race at the track.

Gossage was with Speedway Motorsports for three decades, including the last 25 at Texas Motor Speedway.

“The timing just feels right after 32 years with the company,” Gossage said in a statement. “The Smith family and Speedway Motorsports changed my life and I will forever be appreciative and grateful. Before my wife Melinda and I chart our next adventure, I’m thankful that I get to come full circle as a promoter with the NASCAR All-Star Race.”
