He did sponsor the 410 class and put up the $10,000 to win money for about 5 years before he bought the place.  Might not automatically make him the worlds biggest race fan, but I don't think it rules out the possibility that he is/was/is a race fan who currently has more at stake than just a race track Right now.

It wasn't 10k to win every Sunday night in those 5 years and he may have been in actual attendance a handfull of times, maybe in those 5 years. Hardly makes him a race fan.

yep



I don't think he ever cared or does care about what the public thinks. His style and his self-promotion was/is over the top. To each their own.

If he would of took a more moderately paced and more financially sound approach to all the establishments he just closed, they may have done better?

I enjoy alot of the same music he seems to appreciate, but his pricing and the whole pushing of the VIP experiences at all venues was not in line with the rest of the midwest's pricing and definately had a WWE feel to it.

As I said many times before, burning cash cause he could and doing everything his way or the highway.

It will always be my opinion that IM21 just gave him a convenient place to put the blame for his own business model failings.

Are there any updates on the attempted sale of Badlands?

 One would assume that we are approaching D-day as far as having any racing for the 2017 season, correct?  (whether it be new owners or current ownership starting things back up this spring-if he were bluffing that is)  



 

Official Statement from Badlands Motor Speedway

“There have been a few parties that have been spreading rumors that they have purchased Badlands Motor Speedway. We are confirming that there has been a lot of serious interest in the track and that we have had full pricing offers, but those who have said they are buying it thus far have not been able to close or come up with the money. Please don’t let these posers ruin it for everyone else and keep up the efforts to find great new owners for BMS. We will let everyone know immediately when it actually does sell and we appreciate all of the help spreading the word.”

There may end up being a bidding war but it will end way below the asking price.

 

I seriously doubt there has even been 1 "serious" buyer for Wastelands at the asking price.

Serious buyers have money & financing to complete a deal, anyone that doesn't have the money lined up to close the deal is nothing more than a tire kicker.
