if this shambles was occuring anywhere else in the world we would be on their case questioning their competence. Cos its the usa the usual uk grovelling and sycophancy is evident.

Well at least we know they are working hard to make the track ready. Otherwise they wouldn't be working at night. I can understand residents frustrations, but they have to realise it's only temporary and their whole area is going to reap the benefits of having a world class track so close, bringing in money and jobs into the town.

Get some bloody blinds and stop whining! What difference does it make if the side of your house is illuminated? These people are probably just hoping they might whine themselves some $$$ and that's all.

All my driving life folks constantly complain about road conditions. However, when the States and countys repave them, the same ones complain about the detours and delays. Contruction of any type seems to anger people, particulary those close to it. I live 1 half mile from a rural aport and the only time I get bothered is when the nat guard spends from 8am to 10pm praticing drops and hovers in helos. But it is their job so I just tune it out. Seems to me that some so called tough Texans should know this.

Obviously, if your sueing over a 'disputed water line' you'll complain about the rest. Adding to his case. He'll probably turn around and profit by erecting seated scaffolds during the race. Remember just the license for the privilage to buy tickets are thousands of dollars US. Looks like this guy won the lottery.

@walrus909 - you don't have to buy the license to purchase tickets. The license guarantees that you will get the same seats for any event at this track. I suspect that there won't be many license holders. Also the track is suing the resident over the waterline, not the other way around.
