That place was Never A open invite place for everyone to ride so let's squash this" open to public and make big $$$ because it was nothing like that. . The last 3 years it was literally just him and his family

If the track has been there for that long, why has this just started? What changed?

I am blown away the amount of people in this thread siding with the local government/board that are trying to shut this guy down and even tossing him in jail over such petty shit he is doing on his own land. I thought this was VitalMX where people liked dirt bikes?

You can like dirt bikes, but still be able to have a nuanced discussion about how people's actions affect living in society.

I could kill my neighbors and turn their land into an MX track, but I doubt many folks here would think that's a good idea just because it means more moto.

Pretty extreme example and I agree with your points, but that is not the case here.

The guy is being charged for what, building on a wetland? Or not paying proper taxes for having others ride his track? Lastly maybe some noise complaints?

Its a track, in the country, not on wetland that has been backed up by several to only be used during respectable hours. How is this worthy of putting him in jail and shutting down his personal track?

I am open to discussing this with you or anyone, and I have made my position clear I think this is nuts how the local board has come after him. I am willing to hear yours or other sides though, gather more info and possibly even change my opinion, I get that, its just with what I have read so far, I still think this is nuts and the guy should be free and riding his track right now.

Typical liberal politicians doing what they do best but about 100 miles away they are letting antifa and BLM take over parts of the city.

There are not enough "likes" for me to give out for this post. He's right. Politicians have turned this state to shit. Well, let me re-phrase that, the politicians that were voted in by the people turned this state to shit. I know this is Non-moto and talking politics is frowned upon but if I can take 1 second and just say: Do your research before you vote, please. Don't just go by a (D) or an (R) next to their name. Don't go by what the popular thing to do says on Social media/media in general. Vote by what's best for you, your family, and your community.

A citizen went to jail for riding on a personal track, on personal property. That's priority. Yet the politicians here are letting murderers, bums, druggies, anarchists take over an entire city with ZERO reprocussion. Cops losing their jobs, businesses closing and people getting shot...oh they'll let that slide. Rant over, I gotta go take my blood pressure medicine now

unfortunately it does come down to politics. sad but true.

To be clear, I am not against this guys track. Nor do I think that he belongs in jail. I was only replying to the comment I replied to, which suggested that because it was about Moto, everyone who moto's should be on board. It is possible to be pro-Moto, but not be in favor every possible thing that would lead to more motocross tracks. I went for a hyperbolic example because it was ridiculous.

I would love to read this someday...

"The members of the county planning board have all disappeared...without a trace. Nobody knows what happened."

Boy it's a great day at the track...and doesn't that new whoop section look nice.

Unfortunately, people do that a lot.

I live near an RAF air base, and a few years ago some people bought a house nearby then tried to complain about aircraft noise, saying they "didn't realise it was near an air base". The judge threw their case out when he pointed out that the landing lights just outside their garden were a pretty big clue..

So many of you backing the “neighbors” who complained, yet you’re the ones complaining about the sport dying, not enough place to ride and blah blah blah.

I bet if it was the track you went to, you would be upset as well, commercial or not.

Agreed.

ALL government is totally out of control, corrupt and inept.

Unfortunately, these people aren't neutered...

They all deserve what is coming.... ...and it's comin fast.

Sure sure, and to be clear, my comment does not say or imply if you like moto you have to support this case, and overall what I was saying there is in jest, because I think this whole issue is absurd.

My in-laws property backs up to Brian Deegan’s place in Temecula, and when there’s a few bikes its honestly really annoying. I’ve been riding and racing since I was 3 and it still irritates me after a while, I could only imagine if I didn’t care for engine noise.

So yeah, maybe don’t try to make a track open to the public without permits and mislead people to think you’re just trying to chase your kid around on his 50.

Jail seems a little intense, but it also goes to show how he’s handled the situation. I am confident anyone who took the proper actions and acted gracefully throughout this ordeal would not have ended up in the slammer.

I would guess that he knew that he was risking jail time at some point, and was willing to push the issue and go to jail in attempt to gain public sympathy and/or create some sort of legal appeal.

And to be clear I am not on the governments or neighbors side, I was just pointing out that I am sure there is more to the story than a corrupt county being hell bent on shutting the place down, this guy just riding on the property with his kid and then the judge just locking him up.
I am guessing something changed between when the previous owner used the track and when this guy used the track.
The court document tells a very different tale also.
There is always 3 sides to every story, both arguments and the truth.

And again, I don’t see how jail is appropriate.

Almost nothing surprises me anymore. While government at virtually all levels turns a blind eye to rampant rioting, looting, destruction of property, a dude sits in jail because government has essentially got a hardon for his decades old dirtbike track. we are beyond idiotic

Couldn’t agree more. I hate this state’s government more and more with each passing day. I am so ready to pack up my business and get the hell out of this god forsaken shit hole!

There is no "they". We are them and they are us. Always nice to have a boogeyman, but of course even the boogeyman doesn't own a mirror.
