The pond that is used to water the track is empty. They have no way of preparing the track. In the 15 years i have been around Beebe Speedway i have seen the pond on the verge of going dry but it has finally happend. It has nothing to do with Momma C. The owners of the land will not provide another water source and there is now way the person who leases it no matter who it is could afford to bring water in or drill a well.

Did the wrecker guy sell the track? They had plenty of water. There is a big lake behind to the north. Bull creek is real close by, so it is not only a water excuse. Who is the blonde woman from Russelville that runs around taking photos? Isn't this little mom? I guess she once raced. Said she wrecked a car knocked out her teeth.

The Mahoney's never owned the track. The Akins family owns the track. They just lease it to individuals who run it.

The reason for the lack of water is due to the extreme drought the area is going through. The pond at the speedway generally gets low but this time it is dry. Getting water from other sources would be just about impossible. First you would have to have a water source. Which in a drought is hard to find. Second you would have to pump the water from that source. In racing promoters pretty much break even after paying their lease, insurance, utilities, and nightly pay outs. So its not real feasible to purchase a pump.

I have been around that track for many many years. I assure you it has nothing to do with the current people running the track and I don't even know them.

This is posted on the Beebe Speedway webpage, as well as midsouth racing's message board.

Racing scheduled for Friday the 13th has been cancelled.

The past few days central arkansas has received spotted showers as well as heavy showers, too bad mother nature didn't allow a storm to pop up and stay over the speedway to help with the lack of water situation currently plauging the track. Chris and Cindy Clark are currently exploring other options for water if mother nature does not help us out.

Started out as lease but was bout and then sold out from under one of the partners. Sometimes people need to just mind their own business. If you are a racing know it all then you would have known that.

Butch Rice owns the track and has that Cindy Clark was given 2 weeks to pay the lease. It is said that if she does not pay Stallion is supposed to make it the best quarter mile track in the state. Any more questions?
wow

But what is so funny about the whole thing is that Cindy Clark did not sign a lease with Butch Rice....
