    The track has been in a battle with the neigbors for years. I guess the track owners have finally had their fill. I feel bad for the KC racing community.

      Another great, historic track bites the dust. Sad.

        Bangshifters meet up with Brian in KC. A couple of days later, their drag strip is being taken by the City. Coincidence?

          Nail on the head Ron.Anyone having money in the UMB bank is an accomplice.The Kemper family live in their own little world.What sucks is the number of racers,parts suppliers,chassis builders etc it effects.Had we known what was going on at our BS meeting we would have pooled our money to buy it.We'd save money by having Brian and Ron announce for free beer.

            This does indeed, suck. Would have been great if another party (track promoter) could have bought it. Even if we'd pooled our cash, I don't think we could afford to pay 'em in beer tho..............

                the right thing to do would be a land use challenge - let the city buy it; then sue the city and force them to run it as a race track until suitable facilities could be found.

                  Politics suck. The track predates almost all of the subdivisions in the area but they still complain. We will not have a track in KC for a long time,if ever....

                    My question is this: Which was there first, the track or the bitching home owners?? If it's the track, then the people who bought homes there should've know what they were getting into.

                      Well few years back they built a subdivision just on top of a hill adjacent to track......and guess what?
                      Residents started to complain about the noise!!

                        From what I read, it said that the track owners have been trying to sell the property for some time. They finally lowered the price to a point to where the city could afford the land. It also said the city was working the with the track owners to find a larger piece of land to service the racers in the area.

                        It sucks and it does appear to be an obvious move to raise the property values in the area. Those owning land there will probably end up like kings when developers start buying up property next a 'big park'.
