Retarded Ogars Against Redevelopment (ROAR) needs to think more about the jobs needed in our community and how this park would clean up that area than finding ways to block progress !!!

I think that this is a wonderful opportunity for Columbus as Nascar draws hundreds of thousands of fans alone. The local area could use the economical boost and people are going to have to give a little in order to get. I don't think that noise would be an issue and I ask that people start investigating the noise barriers and their effectiveness before they start yelling about noise. Think of the money it would bring the city and the state. Ohio, you can't stay in the 1950's forever and Columbus is way behind other cities in this aspect.

as a NASCAR and citizen of Ohio I'm for it.
Ohio lost a lot of jobs in the last 2-3 years.
this would get the construction boys back to work. then after they built it had it going NASCAR put it on their Sprint Cup Circuit. This would create a lot of jobs for local at hotels and resturants.
I say go after it if they think it's a practical option to bring jobs to Ohio.

In Columbus we are too good for casinos, We are too good for a racetrack and school. Maybe we are just too good for jobs as well.
