The track and its environs are classified as a county park but has been associated with the not for profit Sports Car Racing Association of the Monterey Peninsula since its inception in 1957.

According to a statement from county officials, SCRAMP has been retained to manage the raceway on a monthly renewal basis since March 2014 while the county “has been exploring options for the management of the raceway to ensure its long-term success.”

Gill Campbell, CEO and general manager of the track released the following statement to the Monterey Herald: “Since 1957 SCRAMP has been committed to the successful future of Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca and, working hand-in-hand with its sponsors, racing organizations, race teams and volunteers, has firmly established it as one of the premier motor sports facilities in the world.”
