Ladies, Gentlemen, Racers, Car Owners, Sponsors, and Fans;
I am posting this to reaffirm the dedication and can do spirit of the
Save Fair Speedway campaign.
Our vision and goal has always and will continue to be to revive and reestablish
State Fair Speedway to its rightful place in the annals of Oklahoma
Dirt Track Racing and to the people of Central Oklahoma. Although
we as a group and a racing fraternity suffered a minor setback with the
court ruling, that does not deter us in our goal it just binds us together
in a stronger fashion.
The glue that binds us together is the LOVE for State Fair Speedway and
Dirt Track Racing.
Our upcoming events are extremely important to our cause. The signing party
at The McGuinness Pub in Moore (http://www.danmcguinnesspub.com/moore/) on
Jan 28th, 2010; 7:00 p.m. - 11:00 p.m. and the Save Fair Speedway Rally, Jan 30, 2010
12:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. (Forest Building Supplies, 300 N. May, Oklahoma City, OK)
are in great need of attendance and support.
Finally, the work of the Peter Davis, Erich Petersen, John Banks Steve Griffin and Mandy
Hall-Griffin cannot and will not be understated. Their tireless efforts, outstanding dedication,
positive demeanour, and unrivalled enthusiasm have been superb. The group has spent
countless hours organising and facilitating a plan for action for this cause that we are undertaking.
Please know that we appreciate all support from all areas of the racing community
in the Oklahoma City and surrounding areas.
As we continue our fight, you will see a more energetic and directed effort.
We have lost this battle, but I will put my personal guarantee that this war
will be won.
Keep your head up and as they say, "to go left you have to turn right".
