What a joke.  I would encourage everyone to walk... no run away from this track as quickly as possible.  Maybe the Race of Champions should reconsider their sanctioning of events at this facility.

Unbelievable; the ignorant comments to stay away from this track are doing absolutely no good for the state of asphalt racing in NY. The social media restrictions are to keep negative comments just like the ones above from destroying what little asphalt racing we have left. I completely agree with the social media rules- if you have an issue with someone or a track, be a man and bring up those issues face to face or at least with a phone call. Destroying what tracks are left will help no one.

I usually avoid comments on these type of threads, but as a long time fan of racing, I think Don's above post is extremely timely and accurate.

I will add this quote: "An arsonist always risks burning down his own neighborhood."

That's all I got....

 Financial penalty to be determined by Track Management. 

 :o :o You are going to enforce that how?  Hillside management does not OWN the Internet or any website , blog or forum outside of their
own and the idea that they have some kind of power to enforce that is ridiculous. They DO have the power to keep you off their property
but to come  out here with a post  of this tone  and make decree's like above is self defeating IMHO.  If Dakota you a specific issue with something someone said you should call them, or contact them in some way so as to have a private convo to work out any issues that would
bear far more positive results than the jack boot routine like above or the adolescent back and forth on Facebook at the moment.

I'll not telling you what to do but it's just something to think about.  Holland Speedway ( or any name you might otherwise call it) has been my personal favorite track in NY and I'm wishing it and every other local track a good year up coming. Hopefully cooler heads will prevail here.  :-\

If you run your business properly, then you'll have no need for such an onerous social policy.  The occasional posts by malcontents will be understood for what they are and properly ignored by most.

Ransomville Speedway is a properly run speedway and they have a Social media policy. I think every speedway should have a social media policy to help speedways survive.

this kind of attitude is actually stupid. a track should get all the (free) publicity it can. even negative arguments get your track in the news. to try an control this by fines and censorship is really a waste of time. arguments or disagreements shoud  all make the news  and how well the track deaks with these issues should be just as newsworthy. basically this is called "freedom of speach". these little arguments waste time and money,,,, when will you guys learn?????

I've read this statement, because it has "risen to the top" several times, as people have responded to it. And after reading it a couple of times, I'm not quite sure who it is directed to, competitors at the track or the general public, as it isn't too clear. (mistake #1)

Furthermore, while I understand why you might not want the "dirty laundry" aired in public, as I have seen in the past, here on 'RaceNY', in relation to other tracks, you need to understand that when you operate a sporting facility that promotes a show for public consumption, that automatically opens you up to comment, either good or bad.

Finally, if you intend to really follow through with this "thinly veiled threat" to the public's ability to comment on your facility's operation, be prepared for your track to have a VERY short life, especially if you intend this "policy" to apply to the general public, and not just the racers/teams who MAY dare to race at your track. (mistake #2)

The 1st Amendment of the US Constitution guarantees the right to free speech, and it's part of the bedrock upon which this country was built. It allows EVERYONE, within reason, to express their opinions freely, whether or not others agree. This means not just you, but others, as well. Trying to artificially control reality generally doesn't work out all that well.
