From Mark Stephens Facebook Account.
"Just kicking it around Robbie Payne and I thinking about opening up blue mountain race track. What do you think?"

Just thought I would share if any updates I will post.

Dan I know that it will take some cash to put the track back to operating, but with your rep, I'm sure it will become a great place to race once again......Have some index races, lots of fun, not to expensive, did I mention "Lots of Fun"......Later  lsmiff

We are really thinking about this, have not pulled trigger yet. But the stopping in now being extended,and going to put down new asphalt at extension and return will be extended and asphalt put  down there as well. More lighting added and also cuberts put in. But like I said havent pulled trigger yet but have talked to Buck Child's about it and he said he would work with us on this. But everybody opinion will help with decision on how track should be run, and what changes should be made to make this a safe and fun place to go race.

Here are some of my opinions about racing.  To me the first thing to running a good track is to set your rules and stick with them.  If you play favorites or the rules do not apply to everyone, every time, then who wants to race there.  The 2nd thing is to start on time and run as efficiently as possible.  Dragging things out doesn't give the spectators the chance to see the whole race.  They will get tired of staring at an empty track and head out.  Last thing is that big payouts do not guarantee car count and don't get you your dedicated racers.  Running the track fairly will earn you more racers because there is always somewhere claiming to pay more money.   Hope to see Friday night racing coming back to our area!!  -Dan Cobb
