    Steve Earle, president of General Racing Ltd., has pulled the plug on the Monterey Historic Automobile Races at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca during Pebble Beach’s annual Concours d’Elegance. After 36 years of staging epic wheel-to-wheel battles during the fabled August weekend, Earle will instead focus on the Sonoma Historic Motorsports Festival (www.generalracing.com) June 5 and 6 at Sonoma’s Infineon Raceway. Earle says that he hopes the show will "wind back the clock on Monterey 20 years, to a time when you had enough space to bring a number of cars to the event and drive them around the neighboring roads." rel="nofollow" Earle’s Laguna Seca races will be replaced by the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion, August 12 through 15, which will honor racing legend Dan Gurney.
