There was an incident this weekend concerning pit riding with a 4 wheeler running into a motorcycle. The 4 wheeler was going a high rate of speed driven by a young boy. He did not stop to see what had happened to the rider he hit, someone saw it tried to stop him and again he did not stop. Going forward, there will be NO PIT RIDING!!!!!! We have tried many times to ask for everyone's help with this problem and yet we continue to have issues. Golf carts will not be allowed. Many times golf carts are seen loaded down with children without an adult driving through the parking lot. It is hard for adults to navigate between campers, motorhomes and vehicles much less a child who does not have experience in driving. I know this seems harsh and many of you will be very unhappy but we are at our wits end in trying to solve this problem.
A word concerning pets....We all love our pets and consider them as family. Many of you bring them with you to the races. We ask that you keep them on a leash at all times. When you take them for a walk to allow them to take care of business, please be considerate and clean up their business. No one likes to step in dog poo....just saying
Please remember Carl Patrick in the loss of his sister. Remember Devin Drewery, Chad Lindsey and Brandon Morrison as they recover from injuries. Each day we all have something to be thankful for.
Don't give up, the beginning is always the hardest.....Mother Teresa
