Albany -- Some South Dougherty Countians are fighting proposed changes at the Albany Motor Speedway Racetrack.
County Commissioners held a public hearing Monday morning on a request by Track Manager Tim Pafford to hold races on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
He says the events will end by 6:00PM, and barriers will be put up to reduce the noise, but neighbors along Radium Springs aren't convinced.
"It's the oval track that we're concerned with with the reeving. The studies have shown that the noise is intolerable, it's obnixous, no one should have to live with that in their neighborhood. With the dirt track as we understand it the noise is only going to increase," said Nancy Barclay of the Radium Springs Neighborhood Association.
"Since these were small cars that got approved, the larger cars of course will make more noise so whether or not the sound barrier is going to take care of that we don't know that," said Concerned Resident Dr. Charles King.
Opponents presented commissioners with petitions against the track. Commissioners decided to discuss the matter at their next work session and vote at their next meeting.
