Problem stemmed from two brothers who are in the Soboba Indian tribe fighting over whose land the track is on, and whether the lease was valid. One brother evidently claimed it was his land, did not want the race to go on (probably because he wasn't being paid), the Tribal Council agreed with him, they filed a lawsuit and won a temporary injunction to stop the race. Unfortunately, temporary really means permanent with a once-a-year international event like this. You just can't get thousands of people from all over the world to wait until our unbelievably self-centered lawyers all get their payday before allowing the project to continue. So, the event goes to Spain where they shoot (just kidding, sort of) lawyers that are willing to hold half the country hostage for a few bucks. Our loss, their gain.
Thanks for letting me vent.

I still think they should build a fortified wall around the whole damn state, air lift you guys to safety, and never again worry about the corrupt politicians and the greenies... It would make a damn fine US Air Force/ Navy Range....we are loosing the one in PR.

Id really like to hear the story surrounding how comp park got chosen to hold the MXDN as opposed to one of the established tracks in the US.
At any rate, I will be there sunday cheering on our team and watching the race on a real motocross track!
