"after 40 Years of dedicated service at husets Speedway, we are fired from Badlands. We'll go in detail soon and let you all know what transpired the last couple of years with mr. Brennan and Badlands. Forgot to mention I was fired by the FedEx guy."

wtf.....

Great crew that is dedicated to our sport and to driver safety.

I saw that many ASCS teams refused to race at Springfield last week due to no ambulance at the track.  Need the fans, drivers and team owners to put the pressure on the track(s) and promotors that don't have adequate safety on site.

I'm sure it's an expense that most tracks will say they can't afford, yet they will spend money on a fireworks show.

I'm going to wait for an explanation on this one. It had better be a good one.

Refresh my memory.  Didnt Tony Stewart have something to do wirh formation of Med Star?  I would think they only charge for the nights they are at track.  Whats the deal?  Who knows about Chuccky?

No, but Medstar was there when Tony had his crash at Oskaloosa. He lends much credit to them for saving his leg, and he has been a supporter of theirs since then.

I would not be surprised to hear an opinion from Smoke on this one.

Time for everybody to take a deep breath and review this MedStar 'thing'. I do not think todays action was a spur of the moment decision as this Medstar issue has been simmering or festering for a while. I have nothing but contempt for Mr. Brennan for what he did to sprint car racing. He has fractured the sport from within and it will take years if at all to mend all of the scars he has inflicted BUT MedStar had problems long before Brennan was on the scene. Nobody will question that MedStar is a well trained and well equipped team but something has apparently been wrong inside the operation for some time as Knoxville, Jackson and the NSL refused the MedStar services over the last few years and the city of Sioux Falls and Minnehaha County have repeatedly refused to grant a  license to MedStar. I don't remember the specifics but Mr.Masur either threatened or did sue the city of Sioux Falls because his firm did not get the Sioux Falls ambulance business and it went instead to an out of town company. Maybe Mr. Masur should have guarded some of his words the past few years as he might have said the wrong things to the wrong people who have good memories. Whatever the outcome this is a sad day for all involved but we all will survive and continue.

Couple things to add. First, don't you think Jackson and the NSL deciding against MedStar had anything to do with MedStar going with Brennan? That is the main thing that blows me away about this whole situation. Jay had Chucks back from day 1!! It cost MedStar jobs per say because of how dedicated Jay was to Badlands. Also, I doubt Knoxville would even concider an outside team such as MedStar because their own safety crew is also one of the best in the nation so why hire an outside crew to do something your current crew can do? So, really about 80% of your statement means nothing.

Was checking the Med Star Facebook page for an update on this. Masur still isn't saying what happened, but apparently hundreds of people were lighting up the track formerly known as Huset's on their Facebook page.

So once again, Lil' Chucky has taken his ball and gone home. The Facebook page for the track has been taken down.

They were apparently banning people who were upset and couldn't keep up. 

Would someone with an ounce of professionalism please swoop in and buy this track for pennies on the dollar? I fear that anything short of that means an end to a legendary track.

It probably has been sold.  Hence the taking down the page and paying out the Medstar contract.

If really was sold, would sure think they wouldn't have the advertisement trying to sell the place on the radio station that was heard just this morning on there.  This entire deal is just comical anymore.  Just wish it would get sold to someone who loves racing and brings Huset's back on Sunday nights and works with all the other area tracks.

Some quick facts. Jay Masur was at the 2015 Knoxvile Nationals providing support right along with Knoxville's very great team. During the 2015 NSL season MedStar was at most of the races. 2016 made that more of a challenge with Badlands running 2 nights a week. One thing we can all agree on even during the split is that the quality of care for driver safety was never part of the bs that went on. Also, MedStar has the contract for much of Rural Minnehaha county. The new ambulance service to Sioux Falls only serves Sioux Falls.

I consider Jay and his crew to be the best in the country at what they do. So this is a pretty shitty situation for everyone involved. 

In saying that, Jay knows why he got fired. He can run around to all the local news stations all he wants and say it's not about the money, etc. But when you get paid for the year's services and told not to come back anymore, you know you had this coming.

How frequently do people who are fired for cause get paid for work months ahead?

I suppose this is just your old pal Lil' Chucky being benevolent? Bless his big heart...

Any idea how much Medstar charges per night? Maybe Medstar charging more than Chuck wants to pay. There were rumors last year of another track not paying the entire bill from Medstar. I would guess chucks attorney told Jay not to disclose there disagreements.
