OK, Moe was right. Aparently, it's in one of the College Station papers from last Sunday.

Sorry Moe, I doubted you.

Meanies.

I don't care where I am.
TWS (Texas World Speedway) will be my forever home track.
I still remember the very first time I was out there.
I broke out my tears!

well, thats good news for a change.

Seeing that some members of the Ferrari club have enough money to buy all of College Station, including Tex A&M, then buying TWS (Texas World Speedway) was no problem!!

That Moe guy is alright - I don't care what the rest of the MH members say about him!!

Awesome!!!

If they don't let MCs back on it, oh well, but I don't see why not though. I would love to take one of our cars on it, something I've been wanting to do for years. One of these days ...

Yes, it's true. My cousin in College station did the appraisal for the owners when they decided to sell it. I'll check and see what it sold for.

It sold for much less than was being asked.

I can't find a link to the paper, but I was assured it did happen.

The Ferrari Club is one of the major stake holders, along with a Real Estate guy. Think development of the land in front of the track with a re-pave and revamp of facilities.

I think they'll be happy to take our money (the motorcycling community's money) to rent the track.

This may even turn out to be a more amicable relationship that we enjoyed before.
