Hey Kenny,

If they do reopen, do you think they would have a track photog yet? If not, I wouldn't mind coming down there to do a shoot with you guys if you have a "FRH day" or something. LOL

But definitely not going to waste my time to go all the way down there and find out they run it like WSIR :bird: :808876-nono:

Man, I REALLY hope they re-open that track!!!! That is an awesome track to ride on. I would much rather do my pre-season testing there, rather then at Willow or Pahrump. The county council needs to get their heads-out-of-their-asses on this one. Kenny, thanks for the heads up on this. And make sure you post up any new info on this situation. :waytogo:

Its gonna be tough for them to reopen all the cities in the southwestern part of the valley are all screwy. It is funny though that people right by Luke AFB complain about the track noise. I'm like 8 miles or so away from Luke and its loud when they are out flying through my area. I can imangine it is insane being right there.

I would like to see it reopen though with all the praise I have heard about the track.

I'm wondering how many of the complaints were from the golfers. I remember coming through that far corner (12?) and seeing the golf course right there and a bunch of golfers staring at us. From my experience with the rich golfers in Hawaii, they are a rather prudish bunch. I'm not sure how country club like that course is, but it seemed to me that the average golfer mentality would be offended by a "biker" track right next to their prestigious greens, despite the loud overhead noise by the AFB.

AMP was the first track I ever shot in AZ. I was invited by TEAM AZ to shoot their event when they came to Pahrump one winter day. Back then, there were 4-5 photographers on the track. I got to do that track about 5 times until they closed it. By then, I was the only photog.

That's because you're FAWKIN' GOOD! :waytogo: :bow: :bow:

However, one good thing is that if you are "da' man" at the track, then I could beg you to let me come out and shoot with you sometime there! :wink: :crazy:

I had a blast out at LVMS when you let me out there to shoot. :waytogo:

I really hope they re-open AMP. It would cut my travel time by 1 hour.

Speaking of photo's, I don't really have an exclusive contract with any of the organizers. I always tell organizers that it is in their best interest to have as many photogs on the track as safely possible. The only agreement I have with these organizers is that I'll be there. I don't want the situation at Willow or Button Willow with regards to limiting their coverage.

Mat ~ You are welcome to shoot with me anytime. Bring your laptop. Your pictures are just as good as mine. I also have a new 300 f/2.8 for you to play with.

Kenny ~ Thanks for the vote of confidence.
