I drove to the track in Tennessee, met the owner of AHRA there (Dallas Brown) and my Realtor... We took inventory, made a list of what was needed, came up w/ what we thought it is worth, and I bid on the property !! Now we nervously wait for their response !! :shock:

The owner of track in Gleason, TN is an idiot, he declined both my generous offers !! He thinks he has a Gold mine... He skimmed off all he could, did NO updates, ran off all the racers, and has been closed for 3 years...
BUT, another track owner sat by quietly, watching what happened, and how I handled the situation... And said 'That is the guy I want for our track' !! He is flying me to St Louis, where I'm renting a car to drive and meet him at the track !! As soon as I have a handshake agreement w/ him, I'll post it here !! Fingers crossed :mrgreen:

On behalf of the AHRA and Jeffers Motorsports Park, we would like to welcome Backmotor Mike Racer to Jeffers Motorsports Park. He arrived this morning to officially assume the roll as the Track Manager/ Operator. Mike has an extensive history as a racer, a listener and a get er done kind of guy. We are excited to see how the track grows and develops under his management and leadership. I’m sure the next few weeks will have some surprises in store but, nothing you can’t overcome. Again, congratulations Mike for meeting this milestone in your racing career! We look forward to working with you!

It's official !! I have taken control of www.JeffersMotorsportsPark.com

Unloaded the BackMotor funny car after its trip from Florida to Sikeston, Missouri !! Did a couple burnouts, and checked for leaks, all looks good. We'll make a test run Friday the 13th at our Pro TNT session, then best 2 out of 3 match race on Saturday the 14th !! 8)
