Subject: The Ridge Motorsports Park Gets The Official "Green Flag". Construction To Begin Immediately.
Date: Tue, 26 Apr 2011 13:40:37 -0700

It is with true excitement that I can publicize to RaceinMason supporters that the Special Use Permit was granted late last night for The Ridge Motorsports. The Special Use Permit contained no restrictions of importance and should be seen as a huge victory.

To put it in simpler language: The Ridge Motorsports Park has been green flagged and construction begins immediately! The race track now has an official website at www.ridgemotorsportspark.com. This is where you'll be able to follow the progress and scheduling of initial events. In a few days, an official announcement will be made by Rod and Joe, but Rod wanted the great news to be communicated to all of the hard-working supporters of RaceinMason before everyone else.

At this point I want to thank each and every one of you for your words of support on www.raceinmason.com, appearances at the hearings, getting the word out on forums and at car events, and your expertise in ensuring that The Ridge Motorsports Park will be a fun and safe track facility for generations to come. While there are so many people who were indispensable, personally I wanted to recognize Peggy Zamzow for organizing the drag racers and the Mason County business and residential communities, as well as Don Schmidt, Randy Blaylock, Fred Wright, Bill Bauer and dozens of others who brought their car and motorcycle racers and club enthusiasts out in force.

Most importantly, our thanks need to go to Rod and Karen Powell and Joe Manke. Without their time, money, vision, and unshakable determination, we wouldn't have this new motorsports park to which we can look forward!

I look forward to seeing you all racing The Ridge in the future!!!

All the best,

Sam Barer

this is good news!

PR can't be too happy about it, but maybe it will encourage them to up their game. A new track will certainly draw people!

e-racing returns to the PNW! :thumbup::thumbup:

This should also draw up some OMrrA racers as it will only be 2 hours from Portland and won't have the "safety" concerns that the PIR track riders always bring up. Yeah to more interclub racing!

Anyone want to buy a cabin less than 30 minutes away?
