If you don't like noise, why on earth would you buy a house next to the race track??If they got rid of it, would majority of Highland care? Im listening to it right now and it is deafening. I can barely hear anything else. I would not be sad if they got rid of it.
If you don't like the smell of a pig farm, would you buy a house next to one?
This is a pretty big business for Highland. Obviously, the track would be missed by the thousands it effects. The workers of the concession stand, track officials, drivers, crew, and fans.
Have you seen the trailers they haul the cars in now? Not cheap.
Here's a challenge, go to the races and see for yourself the work that goes into this, and the enjoyment it brings to the people (specially the kids,) and then step back and try and guess how much $$$ is brought in on a single night.
I don't go as much as I used to, but still go a couple times a year.
