After 30 years of racing their land lease will not be renewed or extended... Kinda crazy

Actually quite suprising. They've been saying this for 15 years, I never thought it would happen.

Does that mean, I have to stay home so Roger can make a good impression on some new people ?

Dam, that's going to suck. I don't want to stay home.

If we do get new racers from all of this, they'll probably tell you the same thing everyone else says.

CCS Southwest already shut down operations last year for motorcycle roadracing. That is why Zack, Dennis, TJ, Anthony, myself and others came over to Arroyo Seco to race this season. No regrets for that but it sure was nice having a track 30 minutes away instead of 6 hours!

i think we will have a butt load of new peeps. I doubt anyone would want to go to the other track by Luke AFB they have noise restrictions. Next season is gonna be fun if Mario stays at home and Tony stays on the track it should be fun all around hahahaha oh yea hope they bring beer

There'll be no racing at AMP out by Luke. Noise, crowd capacity and no organized racing were all reported in the newspaper as conditions for the owner to re-open the place even for trackdays.
