From the sounds of it, if it does open and the son runs it, protect your ID info. You maybe buying a yacht or a car lot and not even know it.

Owner Charlie Stapleton was sentenced today to 4 years in prison.
Former used car dealer sentenced to prison
By Lou Grieco | Tuesday, March 22, 2011, 04:49 PM
DAYTON - The former owner of Stapleton Automotive Sales, accused of running a Ponzi scheme of stolen identities and falsified loans, was sentenced Tuesday to four years in state prison and ordered to pay more than $470,000 in restitution to his victims.
Charles D. Stapleton, 49, appeared in Montgomery County Common Pleas Court before Judge Michael L. Tucker. Stapleton pleaded guilty on Feb. 15 to three counts of aggravated theft of more than $100,000, two counts of grand theft of more than $5,000 and three counts of identity.
All of the charges are third- or fourth-degree felonies, punishable by up to five years or 18 months in prison, and Stapleton faced a maximum of 22 and a half years in prison.
Stapleton used other people’s identities to fraudulently obtain loans to finance various automotive sales, according to prosecutors, who asked for a 7-year sentence.
“The defendant ran a giant Ponzi scheme, ruining a lot of his friends and family members’ credit along the way,” wrote assistant county prosecutor Sarah Schenck in a sentencing memorandum.
Schenck wrote that Stapleton used the names of his wife, business partner, his brother-in-law, his best friend and that friend’s son, all to title vehicles without their knowledge. Other victims include employees, customers and other relatives and friends, she wrote.
“His actions have done irreparable harm to his family and friends,” Schenck wrote.“There is much collateral damage that won’t be reflected in any court documents.”
Schenck wrote that a prison sentence would be appropriate because there was “no explanation” for where the money meant, except to “float his businesses, including the car lot and a race track
A title to the car?H People have problems getting one at Ann Schmid. WHY??????????

Its a shame that someone cant buy it and make it work without getting busted for something . the last two owners have both ended up in prison .i used to race there myself and quit after they got raided in 1992 if i remember right . then we went to dirt two years later at Limaland . they race on Fri Nights and have huge car counts . very efficient race track . its very true that you cant take a asphalt car and just put it on a dirt track . Waynesfield is good just not as good as Limaland . i don't race anymore but sure enjoy watching the action on a weekend night .
I Am pumped for the Limaland opener April 15 .
Limaland is terrible. I race late-models. I won't even pull into Limaland. First of all they don't "take care" of the track. they are some WICKED bumped. the one time I did go there and race. I said something to the safety/track care person. They said "Oh well deal with it."
2nd of all Eldora IS 100000000000000 TIMES better. bigger track, bigger purses, bigger chances for sponcers to see you.thats mainly where i race.

Really ????

Limaland doesn't race late models but once a year . the track is always smooth and creates great three four wide racing . but thanks for responding .. even if it was in epic fail fashion .

A real swift business owner....PAY YOUR TAXES. I tried to go once a year to the track to support locals. He sure wasn't investing any money into the business. Becoming a pretty run down place.

Yes, the track is in really bad shape. The owner has not done any improvements to it in years. The track itself needs repaved so badly that it may as well be dirt. The wall needs painted and the weeds got so high you could not see over them to watch racing. Pretty sad place for the cost of getting in. I hope someone can take over and do something good with it.

If you are unable to convert your asphalt car over to dirt you are not working hard enough,we have went from asphalt to dirt from a friday to saturday show and vice versa just like many I am sure have done.

I raced with a Chuck Stapleton at Forest Park, Dayton Speedway and Kil-kare, He was killed in a sprint car accident at Winchester Speedway. Chuck was married to a Shirley Hufford and they had child(ren). Does anyone know if these Stapleton's are related to that family? I was not the driver that Chuck was, but I did win a few races.
