Bethel Motor Speedway seeks permit; supporters turn out, criticism muted

Later, in explaining why the track is so closely regulated, Sturm said, “We have to protect the life and property in the vicinity of the track, whether it’s one or 10, and as much as possible we have to prevent unreasonable loud noises, dust and dirt sometimes produced by this type of use.”

The board did not immediately decide the terms of the new permit, but may grant the permit at the next meeting on February 22. At the public hearing, no one spoke out against the track.
