I think it is crazy that our Paintsville Tourism has Given $42,000 ..... so far... to Prestonsburg Motor Sports for their Drag Race while reducing the amount given to our own Kentucky Apple Festival by 30% in this their 50th year. What are you thinking. The Apple festival is where all the local fire departments, civic clubs and others make their annual budgets to help others. This Hillbilly Hand Job is putting money into the city Prestonsburg and into the pockets of individuals that organized it. This just isn't right.

Some of you really believe that Paintsville Tourism is giving the money to the Drag Race and in return they are using it for the Drag Race. It isn't a a coincidence that Pburg is remodeling their football field after we decided to give then $42,000 dollars. You people are so blind.

We are making money from this as well as bringing loads of people to our area that spend money right here in our town as well. Any type of tourist attraction like that is great for the county. No matter how u look at it. It will make twice that amount back. Plus bring big time people to our area. As well as news and word of mouth free advertisement to come to the area. Can't go wrong.

It is unsure that Paintsville made money. It is not possible for them to recoil the 42000 in a weekend.

It is my understanding that the tourism office is giving more money to arm drop drag. I do not understand why they feel it is benefiting Paintsville. The director is more concerned about RTF and getting to go out and party. Arm drop is just a big party for people that can't really race. I feel we need to concentrate on the surrounding area.
