Mark Cooper and Gary Caultrider, the plaintiffs that have kept Onondaga Dragway from operating this year via a nuisance civil suit, were required by the court to post a $381,000 cash bond to keep their injunction against the track's operation in place from now until the end of the season.

They chose to do so and as a result the track will not be opening pending the outcome of the civil trial in January. If the track prevails in the civil case they will collect the bond as compensation for lost revenue due to the injunction.

In short, the plaintiffs are willing to risk almost $400K simply to keep the track closed for another three months.

Don't kid yourself, this suit is not about sound. It is about a small group of individuals that have been opposed to the track for years trying to impose their will on the vast majority that are in favor of Onondaga Dragway.

After an attempt to block the issuance of a special use permit failed and a civil suit arguing improper zoning was thrown out of court the "sound nuisance' suit is what they are going to hang their hat on for now.

What a shame . the crew trying to run / open the track have probably busted ass to make it happen! My dad and uncle raced there and I was looking forward to doing the same.
Those two guys don't live within 5 miles of the track that are bitching.

Gonna have to leave some rubber in front of their houses !

Sounds like maybe a "car show" should be held within earshot of their houses..

Absolutely! 2 or three times a week should do it. Every car should have signs in the rear window "Rather be racing at Onondaga!"

The track is set to re-open Saturday August 12th, 2017. It was a long 4 year battle that has ended in favor of the track. Just wanted to update you all that were concerned!
