seen this on PSCA website. Also everybody needs to go to FACEBOOK and join the group: "SAVE OUR DRAG STRIPS" Lets all help. Thumbs up Drag Racing Non Profit to Organize a New Track in Souther California
We had a general meeting today in Moreno Valley, CA with Bill Batey who is a City Councilman for Moreno Valley and an avid Drag Racer.
He has filed paperwork to establish a Non-Profit Group To purchase a piece of land in Riverside County to build a Premanent Drag Strip. Location has been found, and details of the purchase of the land are being negotiated. The Property is reportedly around 60 acres with enough length to run a 1/4 mile strip. The surrounding area is designated as Industrial Use Only. Location will be revealed when details of the purchase are completed, this is to protect us from losing the land.
The Group will be called Inland Empire Drag Racing Association
They will run the facility as a non Profit, so Racing can be a tax deduction!!! All money's made will go to the facility to make it better.
Mr. Batey, Who is also currently campaigning to for California Assemblyman, has been talking with the city of Perris and Moreno Valley for gettin approval of this property to be used as a Racing Facility. Both Cities are on board to help us make this happen.
The group started organizing to get the following done:
Complete the Non Profit Status
General Plans Drawn up ( a local Engineer Racer is doing them)
Establish a Web Site and Facebook page for updates on the Group and the facility
Campaign to get donations for the Purchase of the land and for construction
Appointed members to organize the finacials, Web Design and organize the construction porcess.
