Anyone heard any news on this? It seemed like it was a done deal a while back and I haven't heard anything about it in a year or so.

That's Marcus' job....to be optimistic, convince others to be optimistic, to keep a flame lit under the project.

Tough times....hope they get it done.

I'm in the Beaumont area so this would be awesome if it pulls through. Maybe get a few of the local squids around here to actually learn what there bike is capable of, instead of just straight lines. lol.

Ok, back to the subject. I will wait about a week or two to finish describing the what will be going on. Right now, we are on track to have the road course ready for inspection by December.

This has been a monumental task. Again, and I know I have mentioned this before...there just was a lot of work to be done, and everytime we had the right investment team, something has gotten fouled up.

Some of you may know of Michael Worrell/Rockwall Honda, his situation is indicative of what we have gone through. He had all the sponsorship for his team lined up, rider contracts ready to go...everything. Took him 6 months to get there...the day before they are supposed to sign...BOOM sponsor falls out on him. All that time and effort gone. Well, basically that has happened to us 4 times. The good news is that yes, it has been a phenominal and humbling struggle...and yet we are poised to start back up with construction and complete the project. I say this knowing that 100 things can go wrong to kill the deal right now, but that is the nature of what I undertook.

I will keep you posted...AND YES the website will be updated within the next two weeks (yes, I know it is old! )
