This report just in from Ed Siccardi of Eyeball Engineering:<BR><BR>I just got back from a day ride to Rausch Creek Raceway to check out the progress they're making on the new racetrack. A year ago they said they wanted to open in the spring of 2001 and we all know they were delayed but I figured they must be pretty far along by now. Boy, was I surprised!<BR><BR>THERE'S NOTHING GOING ON AT THE SITE! Not only is there no asphalt down, the grading doesn't seem to be complete and the site looks like it did in their website pictures a year ago! The most surprising thing was there was no-one around and there was no equipment of any kind in sight - no earth-moving equipment, no trucks, no dozers, no tractors, nothing.<BR><BR>The construction office/trailer was buttoned up tight and looked like no one had been there for some time.<BR><BR>It looks like all work stopped several months ago and the site has just been weathering this past spring and summer. I think I can safely predict, based on what I saw today, that the track won't be opening this year or next year, either.<BR>
