Motor racing events welcome

InsuranceDear Editor:

I am sorry to say that I have not been to the races here at Lincoln, but fully intend to do so this year.

Lincoln is very fortunate to have motor racing here, and it does bring some much-needed revenue to our city. As other letters have noted, the stores and area restaurants are busier with the increased traffic that these races generate. So I for one welcome these racing events and hope that Lincoln can become one of the busiest racing venues on the Illinois circuit.

Motor racing is the fastest growing sport in America (according to ESPN sports) and I am glad that Lincoln, Ill., has become an outlet for this very popular sport.

Bill Treakle
