    You can read the whole article here. What a shame looks like a fight for another local track. Similar situation that CT dragway ended up in. People buying homes near a "known" race track and then complaining.

    So they went through with the ban or is it still being debated? Anyways, that really sucks.

    Theres a similar situation here in Utah with the new Miller Motorsports Speedway. They say its too noisy now.

    But heres a good line to say to those neighbors, "do you want them drifting the corners in your neighborhood?"

    I absolutely can not stand situations like these. The track that myself, family, and friends have spent 70% of our races at(Thundercross in Okeechobee, FL. Motocross dirt track) is in the process of closing, mainly due to complaining neighbors. I found this out as I'm about to purchase a dirt bike. Also, there's an airport across the street from the gym I go to and the residents around the area have been protesting since I can remember. To my knowledge, the houses were built after the "nuisances" in both cases. I can understand hating the noise, but put up, shut up, or get the fuck out. Granted, they have their right to bitch as Americans, but I believe actually closing the shit down is a light jog past the line.
