Well, 21.5TC was a big hit again yesterday!

Thanks to everyone who came out, it was a blast!

With Leisure Hours closing in March ( looking for a new building), WCRC will be the only game in town.

  • Wonder why Scott is doing that? Last I knew that building was paid off in full some time ago.

They stated on the post that overhead was not being met, and that an offer was made on the property. Someone else commented that there's some kind of bridge going in that goes thru the property. The best thing we can do at this point is help out racers who may want to come give carpet racing a shot.

Wow that sucks. Wonder if it was eminent domain more than overhead. If LH can't make ends meet on a paid off property I don't know how anyone does.

The bridge took out Challenge Park, which was across the street from Leisure. I'd be surprised if that same thing is taking out leisure. And that took out CPX last year.

That said... that's a big building, and it's not near much.

Look at it this way, with the newly freed up racers, maybe we'll get another track started up. :-) (Mind, my opinion on Leisure isn't... good... My experiences were never stellar there.)

I hope those "newly freed up racers" come to WCRC

It's nearly an hour away. There's plenty of room for another track. We want more drivers, poaching drivers doesn't help anyone long term. :-/

A trucking firm bought LHR. All available land in the immediate area will be cargo distribution in the near future. The huge intermodal facility east of the track was a game changer. Just like the toll bridge that will go onto I55 that will be built soon.

Why not?

To continue the discussion, there's a big function in sports like this of "If you build it, they will come." Especially if you do something awesome like WCRC and have a location that gets traffic, and ~looks good~. Leisure looked like a place that you'd get beaten up at, or arrested for loitering at.
