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?
