The raceing season is short. May I susgest during the races go for a drive or go get an ice cream. I'm not saying you should leave your home so the races can continue. I'm just makeing a suggestion.
The summer season is short for most outside activities, this includes racing of any kind. I don't live that far from TC and the noise does not bother me, although I am a MotorHead. I enjoy hearing motors of all types, boat, planes, race cars and motorcycles. The racing seems be done at the time of day that should be tolerable for anyone, except those that just want to complain.
Hello folks. My son and I joined the KPRL this year to enjoy the outdoors together. I went and bought a bike just so I could do this with him. The biggest thing I have noticed about the people at the motocross track is that they are friendly, helpful, and most all include the entire family.
As President of the Homer (ice) Racing Association, I too, have dealt with the neighbors that seek to shut down our winter sport. Both KPRL and HRA have a history of making the day a family event. We include our kids in our day. If this happened in more places and in more aspects of all our lives, we probably wouldnt have as many issues with drug abuse and obesity that seem to plague our kids these days. What will these kids do? More video games? Hang out at the local hang out, putting them at risk to come into contact with the wrong element that could lead them down the wrong path in life? I think we've all had enough of that, the news is full of stories of young people that were involved in a drug bust, or were in the "wrong place at the wrong time", and here we have an organization that seeks to better the family unit, and keep their kids in a structured sport that keeps them fit, and people complain about it.
Young or old, everyone can be involved in this sport.
How about ELECTRIC Vehicles & Motorcycles !

What I find so interesting about the fascination with electric vehicles, be it a car or a electric-cycle, ( the term "motor" just cant be used for electric vehicles in this case), is the extra polution they will put out by the act of charging the vehicle. Unless we all go to complete nuclear power, coal is the means by which the power is generated. Solar is another great alternative, but until its brought to a reasonable cost, and becomes more efficient, its really out of reach for most people. Once its in place, as the start up costs are extrodinary, it can be very effective. I'm all for alternative energy sources, but until they become as effecient as fossil fuels, they really are third world in their own way. Oh, and dont let the "powers that be" tell you we have a huge shortage of fossil fuel. There are BILLIONS of barrels all over this country that the minority enviromentalists have been able to keep us from obtaining. You know, the same environmentalists that drive gas powered cars to go to protest rallies to protest drilling. Yeah, those environmentalists.
