Township Meeting Update

Jeff Bozell

Although Kalamazoo Speedway and Alamo Township continue to make strides towards resolving their noise differences, the meeting for Monday, February 25 at 7:00 is definitely still on.  We do need your support for this meeting.  Feel free to contact Gary Howe (gary@kalamazoospeedway.com) if you have any questions.

Township Meeting Rescheduled for Monday, February 25th

Luke Krick

The staff and management of Kalamazoo Speedway would like to take a minute to thank all of the many people who came out to the township meeting Monday as well as all of the people who helped spread the word through Facebook and/or Twitter!!   You people rock…….once again showing that the racing family is as strong as any group of people out there!

Alamo Township wants to quiet down the track and we as participants need to understand that we all will have to concede somewhat to more restrictions to quiet our cars down.   We will come to an agreement somewhere in the middle to make the township happy as well as keeping our 64 year old tradition at Kalamazoo Speedway alive and well!

We have another meeting scheduled for Monday, February 25th at 7PM at the Alamo Elementary School.   We need to have a strong physical presence at this meeting but we also need to act professional and let the township run their meeting.  There will be several key people who we want to give a fair chance to talk, including area business people, representatives from the church, speedway friendly neighbors who have lived near the track for years, several representatives from many charities that the track supports, as well as many local citizens that simply deserve a chance to talk.  We need to give these people their time to speak and although anyone has a legal right to talk, if we have 250 or 300 people at this meeting, we obviously won’t have time for everyone to speak.

Again, thank you for the overwhelming support…….the Kalamazoo Speedway Racing Family will come together when times get tough and like so many times in the past, we will once again prevail!!

Thank you all………

Gary Howe

-Midway through the 2011 season Kalamazoo Speedway officials announced a “relaxed” time schedule which consisted of the pit gates opening at 2:00 and practice starting at 4:00.  This schedule was a big hit with the majority of teams and therefore speedway officials have decided to continue with that time schedule for the majority of its 2012 events.  Some special events, such as the Intimidator 100, will still have different schedules.  As the season gets started stay tuned to www.kalamazoospeedway.com for each week’s schedule information.

-Cool Shirt has announced that they will be a part of some of the biggest events at Kalamazoo Speedway in 2012.  Cool Shirt will provide the winner of the Kalamazoo Klash, Call of the Wild and Super Shoe Nationals with a certificate for a bag or club system as well as a cotton shirt.  They will also provide the 2nd-5th place finishers at each event with Cool Shirt Bucks certificates for $100 each, to go towards an order of $300 or more.  For more information on Cool Shirt visit www.coolshirt.net.  We hope to be announcing more contingency sponsors shortly so keep checking back to www.kalamazoospeedway.com for all the updated information.  If your company is interested in being a contingency sponsor contact Gary Howe at gary@kalamazoospeedway.com or 269-692-2423.
