Let me be first to say thank you, Bill, for all the good times we have had at your track. And thanks to Linda and Ron and everyone else who worked so hard to make it a great place to spend a chilly Sunday.

Thanks for trying to keep it open. Sucks to hear that you have to officially close its doors.

Default That sucks!

Bill, Thanks for being there for us. Great track! $3000 a month for rent? Phew, that's a big nut! Wish there was a way to start some kind of co-op with shared ownership. Let's start a "fund me" campaign and see if we can get the 36k.

Yes I'm with you on a Fund me campaign might take a good while to get that kind of money though . 3000 is pretty steep for rent for a warehouse that is around nothing.
