Welcome to the Kingman 500

I have noted with interest that the city of Phoenix is going to have a street race within the city, a real Le Mans. Well, Kingman is way ahead of Phoenix in this category. We have had road racing on our streets for years.

No one bothers the speeders on our streets, and they can go full out without the police bothering them. Country Club Drive is jam packed with these speeders, and I have a suggestion. Have the city put up bleachers so the public can watch the racers. The police could come out of hiding and be used to sell popcorn and drinks.

Forget the golf carts and the stop signs; put the pedal to the metal, and let's show Phoenix what a real race town is like. All appeals to city officials fall on deaf ears, so we may as well make Kingman the official Le Mans Race track of the Southwest. Get a seat in the bleachers. Buy a soft drink and some popcorn. And wait until these maniacs kill someone. It is sure to happen.
