Albany Motor Speedway says they'll close because of restrictions

May 6, 2008

Albany-  The answering machine at Albany Motor Speedway now says they're closed and four Dougherty County Commissioners are to blame.

The message from manager Tim Pafford says because big cars can't run at the track, he decided to shut down.

Pafford told us over the phone that it would be too costly and he would have to get the Army Corps of Engineers involved to meet the commissioner's stipulation for a 25-foot berm for noise abatement.

Property owner Bill Farnsworth said he will meet with Pafford Thursday to discuss the racetrack's future. Pafford told us Tuesday he plans to file a lawsuit against the county and the Radium Spring Homeowners Association for discrimination and slander.
