Future of racing in Winnebago County discussed on Eye on Oshkosh

For many years stock car racing has been a staple in Winnebago County. But recently, contract negotiations between the county and racing promoters have stalled or otherwise broken down. On this episode, host Chery Hentz talks with promoters (Impact MotorSports dba Oshkosh SpeedZone) about their take on the negotiations, why they believe they aren't being given a fair shake by the county, and why racing should stay in the community.

In another segment of the show County Executive Mark Harris and County Parks Director Rob Way offer their take on the issue and why they believe there are more profitable use options for the County Fairgrounds and Expo Center, making those uses a better deal for county taxpayers.

* Note: This show was not meant to take the place of or act as contract negotiations in any way, but rather to enlighten and educate viewers on the issue and let everyone draw their own conclusion. If anyone has any opinions they wish either party to know, they are encouraged to write to them letting them know how they feel and why they support the side they do.
