The city of Waitsburg is still working out the details, but is highly supportive of a businessman's proposal to turn the community's horse racing track into an auto racing arena!

Neighbors are concerned about noise and dust, of course. That means there are many details to work out before the first race is held, but generally the community is supportive and excited about the economic development it would bring.

Several local racing enthusiasts have already pledged to participate in races and buy tickets.
