Illinois Motorsports Coalition started this petition to Richard J. Durbin and

In an effort to inform and educate the Governor of Illinois’ staff, and with guidance by leading industry professionals, we have submitted the Illinois Motorsports Coalition (IMC) plan to the Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity as well as Bain Consulting.  Bain Consulting has been selected by Governor Pritzker to develop policies as it pertains to the Restore Illinois Regional Phase Plan.
 
We have presented a comprehensive plan to reopen motorsports safely and responsibly in Illinois with significant compromise and tremendous restrictions to our normal operating procedures. Our seasonal businesses have already suffered significant losses. Further delay will result in multi-generational family businesses closing for good if an immediate opening plan is not approved.  We know that our plan will give adequate protection to all motorsports fans, participants and employees as required by the Centers for Disease Control. 
 
Like many patriotic Americans, we understood the importance of the COVID-19 crisis and willingly closed our businesses to provide adequate time to help “flatten the curve” in Illinois. “Flatten the curve,” which was to have been a program with a limited time-frame, now has suddenly changed to “find a cure.” As other surrounding states are responsibly reopening their motorsports venues, we continue to watch our participants and fans traveling to other areas. They return home with empty pockets while we helplessly are doing the right thing.
 
We need an administration that is willing to listen and review our operating plan.
 
We now understand enough to know that the spread of infectious disease can safely be mitigated. We can’t be stuck in the trap of complacency through shelter-in-place orders. We MUST MOVE FORWARD while living with this challenge by acting responsibly and doing the right thing.  We now know it’s up to the citizens of Illinois to do the right thing and not have the way they live their lives dictated to them.

By signing this petition, we are asking you to support the Illinois Motorsports Coalition 8-Step plan to restore motorsports in Illinois.
