Pacific Raceways is an asset | Letters

(RE: “Pacific Raceways asks King County for help”):

Pacific Raceways (aka SIR) is an important asset to City of Auburn and King County. I began racing motorcycles there in 1973, and with the Washington Motorcycle Road Racing Association in 1975, racing, announcing and reporting (on local heroes and future world grand prix champions like Wayne Rainey) to local and national newspapers through 2003. I can testify that organized club racing decreases dangerous street racing, saving lives of riders and improving the safety of other road users. Please support Jason Fiorito or other worthy managers in building jobs and meeting environmental demands to keep this beautiful and much-needed facilty open — to get squids off public roads and into organized competition!
