The drag strip at Maui Raceway Park was vandalized this past weekend. I can't imagine why someone would do such a thing. He (or they) should be shot!http://www.mauinews.com/page/content.detail/id/521849.html?nav=10

Man Bruce! Guess there's just no way of getting away from it.My guess is that maybe you moved from this area thinkin' you wouldn't have to deal with crap like that.

Thanks for your thoughts on this, Ron. Although the perpetrator has yet to be made known, it was just one person who did the damage. He apparently ripped off a tractor that was being used on a project at the local humane society facility (almost two miles from the drag strip), drove it to the track, did his dirty deed, and even returned the tractor to "near" where he'd stolen it! (That's how they figured it was that tractor that did it, the contractor knew it had been parked elsewhere at the end of work on Friday.)Anyway, the good news is that the local racing community came together big time, and with the help of a whole lot of folks, the facility was put back in order, and they'll be racing there this weekend! Thanks again...
