I regret to inform you that, after more than eight years of hard work and high hopes, I have decided to discontinue efforts to create our vision for a beautiful new racetrack in the Antelope Valley. As you might imagine, it was an extremely difficult decision.
Despite creating a project plan that more than satisfied demanding county requirements coupled with extensive efforts to address local community concerns, it became clear that for some, the very idea of any new racetrack outweighed the reality of environmentally sensitive design, responsible operation and numerous benefits to the area.
Despite my disappointment, I remain committed to motorsports and am forever indebted to your efforts to support Fairmont Butte Motorsports Park, which sadly will remain only a vision.
To everyone that has helped try to make FBMP a reality, please accept my gratitude for all that you have done. I hope to see you at the races!
