    Keep up entertained vs give us a place to do something legal. Going to a movie theatre is entertainment and isn't really comparable to a track. You can't race on the street period, so doing it privately is out of the question. On the other hand you can go buy a dvd player and watch your favorite movie at home.

    A lot of states sponsor a type of program to get people off the streets and onto the track so why do you think its NOT their job to provide us with a legal place to enjoy a hobbie?

    Exactly. Englishtown has been under pressure for the last few years. They want to close it down but yet dont want kids street racing. They build new parts to it, but can't get the right permit to execute these new parts legally. People who live around Englishtown should realize even before they moved in that at times there will be loud, very loud noises in their backyard, they choose to live there and the track has been there longer then most people have lived there.
    The irony to the whole situation is that the mayor of englishtown wants the place closed, when his grandson is into street racing/modifying cars. Heck he owns a 2.5rs and lives a town over from me.

    I'm not saying current establishments should be closed down, just that they hold no responsibility to entertain us. You don't have to race to live.

    No I understand. I think the main point is, bust a bunch of people for street racing, give em an altimatum. By building tracks and street courses and what not.
    "You don't have to race to live." I think ya do, I got a quad turbo srt-4 sitting in the garage with 2 bottles and I only race for slips. JK

    They have an ultimatum. Don't street race, and you won't get busted.

    I forget where I saw it, but there are some places that have tried to put together sanctioned races for kids...the gov't did not pay for it, or at least not all of it. I think that an organization of people who have had friends and family killed racing funded a good portion of it. It is a good idea...Provide a legal alternative then crack down on illegal racing to make the legal choice more desirable.
