Vandals Strike South Buxton Raceway, Races Suspended
 
Clean up continues at South Buxton Raceway, although this time, it has nothing to do with cars tangling on the dirt track.

Vandals struck the local track sometime between Sunday night and Monday morning, and according to track officials, racing for this Saturday has been suspended until a full police investigation, and clean up at the track can occur.

In an effort to get the track up and running, drivers, volunteers, and fans have been offering resources and time to repair damages and get all of the track’s equipment in working order.

“The support we have been getting from drivers, other tracks and a lot of people has been amazing,” South Buxton Raceway promoter Blake Outhouse said in a Raceway news release. “We can’t thank people enough for the way they’re coming forward to offer whatever help they can.”

According to the South Buxton Raceway Facebook page, the track’s ambulance was damaged, with windows smashed and many emergency supplies stolen. A lawnmower was also stolen from the property, and the track’s scale was damaged as vandals attempted to drive a tractor over the scale, breaking the sensors under the plate of the apparatus.

The track is asking anyone with information regarding the thefts and acts of vandalism call Chatham-Kent Crime Stoppers (1-800-222-8477)

South Buxton Raceway has completed three weeks of their summer racing schedule.

I hope they catch these people and if you heard anything you can be anonymous when contacting crimestoppers.
