We need LEGAL drag strips to provide safe and organized racing for all

It will keep the street racing down to a bare minimum and is truly in the best interest of Public Safety. An organized, safe venue to race our cars is truly a "positive" for our communities. It also teaches young people that we do care enough about their futures by providing a safe alternative, therefore giving them the "option" to do the right thing. Without a safe and organized facility to race their cars, they are going to have no positive choice so the end result will surely be illegal street racing. Just look at the numbers from the San Diego area pertaining to illegal street racing deaths before they opened up the facility at Qualcomm Stadium ( which is currently looking for private funding to stay alive). Drag racing legally is a great thing! There are no negatives. It brings all types of people and families together in a friendly and fun environment and without a legal and safe environment to operate our cars, the alternative is all negatives. And let's not forget the fact that in this tough economy, race tracks EMPLOY people and those people pay taxes as well as the race tracks generate revenues. It's a win win! So PLEASE give us our race tracks!
