Same deal these crazies will target anywhere there are a lot of people .
My personal views they love to see the panic they can create and the feel of power over another.

Probably a bunch of gang bangers in a bike club having issues with another group.

The event, which was scheduled through 11 p.m., included a concert Saturday night with Lil Boozie.

Va Motorsports park west of town is NHRA. I don't race there. I race at the IHRA track off 64 and 295 which is out in the middle of no where but its one of the two best tracks around.

GALOT in Benson has set new standards for a drag race park but never raced at VMP.
Never will.

Hey folks watch news in Savannah and you will find they have about one a day. The city was pleased to announce a year ago murders were down to only fifty a year. Down from the previous 52. I often wonder just how many shootings are ignored by local news because they are so common.

On the local news now (and was on late last nite) - 10K or so folks, NO METAL DETECTORS, several folks hurt (or shot?), some FINE rap crap entertainment, and STILL NO ARRESTS!

Yeah - what could POSSIBLY go wrong? SHAME on VMSP for even ALLOWING such an "event"!

Here's an "entertainment" sample ...

I have this cluster F of cities just north of me over the VA line. Norfolk, Va Beach, Chesapeake, Portsmouth, New Port News, Hampton. Its one or two a day up there but mostly fights not shooting at some park.
I'm dang sure not into the rap crap, but drugs, guns and tough guys tend to be involved with that type of lifestyle I can see it but i'm like Bruce i'm suprised VMP would allow such SNIT where motorsports are suppose to be .

All for that almighty dollar but I hope they learn their lesson.
Like mentioned, I'll never visit in that park, their NHRA i'm IHRA and this side of I-95 or the tracks as we call it.
