If you operated a place like this would you want outsiders to stand outside and watch ? I don't hardly think so, when my son played ball for the hight school, I saw parents go threw the other entrance so they didn't have pay get in . If you want to see an event or see your child play in sports or whatever, pay the price like everyone else does.

The word now is that the track (or the assets )are back up for sale????????Jerry is a great guy and I respect and like all the employees there,Pete really struggled " speaking the language" here and that alone has all but killed a great place to race,,,my opinion,,I have seen other tracks owned by this group and they are not the caliper of track as Cherokee and obviously much different type of people going to them.I hope things turn around as i would love to go back and whoop up on all of you once again,,,,just kidding,,,,,ok maybe not

it's like this one of the best tracks around has went to the dogs. i was jerked around there this weekend but that was my last and as many as i can get to stay away i will. it was bad when tim was there but the man who has it now show up for 1.5 seconds afraid to show his face i would be to if i had took peoples money. i wounder what he will say when he finds out that we all can file a case against him for fraud & the flyer he had out makes it a state and federal fraud check with the county attorney or that matter the state. it called deceit by advertising. I think that was how it was said by the attorney. he new he would never NEVER have that many cars but he did not refund any money or try to make things right so hes now on the wrong side of the law. everyone needs to report him.

he screw all the drivers there that weekend and some even ask for part of the money back because they only raced for 1700.00 instead of 5000.00 but it was 200.00 for the 1700.00. then they let the "local" drivers go to the line and say who they was running. one young man from knoxville was done really bad he had entered 2 cars because of the flyer. sorry i look for the flyer so i could put it on here we dont have it any more. but if the tracks dont have the car count they make it up or got back to regular race and refund the money. we've raced all over and never seen anything like this.

i know at memphis motorsports park where i used to race they would put flyers out, it would say on the flyer "Based on this amount of cars the payout will be" , now it never turned out to be that many cars as on the flyer so they would pay out to the number of cars entered. i dont know if that is how the flyer you had was writen or not. as far as local drivers being able to pick who they ran is crap. im building a car now, so its good to get some info on how things are going at certain tracks. does anyone know of info on the track being built in bulls gap at volunteer speedway?

The flyer stated pay out was based on car count so no fraud was commited. Im not going to say the new owner is the best they have had but before you bash someone make sure you have the story straight. The track is still the same but the owners have made it difficult sometimes no doubt but just get your facts straight before you run your mouth.

Talking about the grandstands I havnt seen them full , are with people sitting in back of pickup trucks watching some fast 1/8 mile kick ass drag racing,or the staging lanes so full of pro,foot brake cars, that they was lined up half way down the pit area , since Mikey Allen had it, maybe sombody should call him and beg him for help, and I'm not just talking about Saturday nites, I'm talking Friday nite test and tune also, it takes a true DRAG RACER to run a drag strip like he did. ALLENS COMPETITION ENGINE that's where Cherokee motorsports needs to look for help before all the fast cars leave

I think This will be a great place to go to now, I went for the last three weekends and the new owners are very nice people and alot of cars were their also. Not sure about most but I will be back. Give it time and let some other people visit and they will have plenty of race cars, Good luck to the new owners.
