these idiots do not even realize all race tracks in residential areas follow the same noise ordinances that every one else does....read this over and over....race tracks can bring great revenue and can provide a ton of jobs around the track as entry level type positions from food vendors, ticket windows,ETC ETC(in the case of a Bristol or Charlotte type configuration)....lets just say, google Bruton Smith(he could probably buy the city of Columbus twice and still have money) if he gets involed and/or ISI speedway corp it will be a top notch facility and he will enough money to keep everyone happy easily....now its just solidifying a date on the NASCAR CUP, NATIONAL & Truck series dates which would be difficult....

what a bunch of cry baby party poopers...wah wah wah....i live a few miles from national trail raceway and they race late all the time from spring to fall and i hardly even notice it at all..they have no sound barriers either....

if they are worried about noise, how about out by sciota downs, its by major hightway plus its out of town but not that far, it has plenty of spaces for track and parking.

also after watching the video, they mentioned a Hotel and all kinds of stuff would provide a ton of jobs for people in need....

also, ive been to the daytona 500 5 times...and i can tell you the event is held during the day, and across the street at the valusia county/daytona beach mall, the noise is hardly noticeable inside the mall and DIS DOES NOT HAVE ANY SOUND BARRIER, NOT ONE!!!!....the noise claims the company ROAR is stating is way way exaggerated...

also, if this were a 1.5 mile track it would likely be a 1 weekend type thing 1 a year for the main event and smaller low level sanctioning events(shorter races/less competitors like ARCA/comping world east etc) on other weekends and an amusement park/resort of automobile sort on others....like for example the Richard petty driving experiences you can schedule at different Nascar tracks(closet to central OH would me Kentucky Speedway)....

I am a big NASCAR fan and want a track!!! Who cares about the noise columbus needs the money and the space is ava. These cry babies can move. I can't afford to travel to the races and I would buy season tickets if I didn't have to travel. Columbus needs the jobs and 10% is unemployed right now maybe the state can get them a job at the race track instead of payiong them to sit on there butts and do nothing. I know there are some who are looking for a job not talking about you. I WANT A RACE TRACK GO JEFF GORDON BRING IT ON

I agree with LOLZ & OMG - bring it!!!!!!!!!! We need it, we want it, this is an opportunity we cannot miss. Sorry to say folks but Franklinton aka The Bottoms isn't ever going to be high on anyone's list for any other development. Take it, embrace it, BRING IT.

The first thing people want to do is cry about a little noise. I am tired of crybabies boo hooing about noise one day a week. I would gladly live next to the race track. Right now I live on Broad Street and every day and night I hear sirens, loud radios, mufflers, squealing tires and it never ends. I would trade it all for Saturday night car races. Let them build the race track at the cooper stadium site and bring some life and business to a run down forgotten neighborhood. What can they do? Wake the dead in Greenlawn Cemetary.

I have an idea. Let's put the racetrack in the "family-friendly" Arena District?

Soundwall to be constructed: problem solved for the rehab facility.

Besides the residents of Greenlawn Cemetery, I can't think of anyone else down there close enough to be too noisy for.

If they pass up this particular opportunity In this economy, they're nuts.

Noon to 1PM Sunday for race start times. Every ones up, Race mufflers required, race over before 5PM.
I'm afraid this part of town will go further downhill if the stadium sets unused, and becomes an eye sore.
Using race mufflrs is required at a lot of local speedways, all over America. That helps reduce the noise some more, to go along with a sound barrier.
There will be some additional money spent in Columbus, primarily in the Arena District, and additional income for Hotels and Motels around Columbus. Many people that attend these events come from out of state, and like to stay the night before. Some of the people that live close by, would have the oppertunity to pick up some extra money for a few hours work. It's not like the City couldn't use the money.

Here we go again!!!!! Again we have someone who picks COWlumbus as a place they would like to come to and build a multi-million,multi-use facility in our city and we have morons with out the vision to realize how many people will benefit form this. think about how many jobs and giant amount of revenue that the area will benefit from.That area has been on the down slide for years it could benifit greatly if this could become a reality.Just watch #8's,One whoknowsmuchmore posted.If that doesn't open your eyes you are truly blind......

Agreed that ROAR is a joke. Read the letter from the noise "expert" on their opening page. He makes assumptions w/o any real testing or even knowledge of what ARSHOT is proposing. Sounds like ROAR told him what to say and he just obliged. These folks would rather have a costly (to the city) eyesore than a 1st class entertainment, education, and employment arena? Do they think there is a line of developers waiting to snap up and transform Cooper?

ROAR = Re-assure Our Area is Rundown

If ROAR succeeds in preventing this project I wonder if the real estate agent leading the charge will happily walk her prospects through the crumbled, overgrown, syringe filled parking lot and tell them "yep, they wanted to build a multi-sports arena, restaurants, hotel, education center, auto museum right here, but I stopped it cold. Now, let's get out of here before it gets dark".

I have friend that lives a 1/4 mile from Columbus Motor Speedway. the noise is so loud at times that you can't sit outside and talk. but it is only one night a week. I'm not complaining I like the races.
the only thing I think it might effect is the hospital nearby. by the way how would this effect Columbus Motor Speedway?

This is outrageous. When people are trying to add somthing good to this neighborhood the residents dont want it. Just build a wall around the whole area so their wanna be thugs, prostitutes, and crackheads can steal from eachother. Meanwhile people can spend money and put it back into the economy at the track.
