Where is Wisconsin Wildman at when I need him? He stated last year that Deyo needed to cut grass around Georgetown speedway. Today they just started cutting the grass in the parking lot. It was 3 feet tall and they were cutting it with a bush hog so the grass is still tall...shin deep...he puts on great race shows and has gtown going in the rite direction but man keep the grass cut with mowers.

I was reluctant to respond to this post but I just thought it might bring to light a few things that might not have been considered before the post about how tall the grass was. First off Georgetown isn't a weekly venue, so the grass not being cut weekly is not as much of a concern as it would be if they ran every week. Secondly,  Mr Deyo took a big risk not to mention  a surmountable task in bringing it back. The list is too long to comment about on how much work and money Mr Deyo laid out to bring Georgetown basically back from the dead. There would be no racing all at Georgetown.  The fans there can see with their eyes the BIG improvements done at the facility. Can it be more and better? Sure it can and more than likely if he can make it remain profitable my bet is the fans will see even more. Most events there the place is packed.........thats not by accident. Tall grass between events is a small price to pay in lieu of no racing at all or a penny pinching, lazy promoter  Kudo's to you Mr Deyo for all your hard work and dedication

I bet there are places in this counrty where race fans would happily walk through some high grass to see a live race.  We are lucky to have live racing that's allowing fans.  A lot of places are still not there yet.

One concern nobody has addressed is the danger of high grass and parking vehicles with very hot exhaust systems over that grass. Many people have learned the hard way about the danger of fire occuring.

One of the Delaware tracks(or Hagerstown) had an incident where a bunch of cars burned in the late 80s.

It was Bridgeport,  early season race, may have been 1st race of the year.  It started near the pit gate in a line of cars parked facing the road.  Sat in pit grandstands and watched it spread and a lot of pit members scrambled to move cars and trucks.  Tall, dry grass more of a threat than fresh, green grass, but from that day on I never park on tall vegetation

Hey Hammer Down it's been raining every day here for the past month.  Literally feet of rain has come down in the past few weeks.  Be thankful you were able to go watch a race in person.

I live in this area where feet of rain have fell...my grass still been cut every week...never had to skip cutting for too much rain.

Also, Deyo has done a lot of improvements to the speedway, don't disagree with that at all, but he does have backers that put the money up...no big deal but people should know he has big time help in the form of Melvin Joseph construction and stockley tavern owner.

Either way keep the grass cut for paying customers
