Mesa Marin No More

The big news around town lately is all about Mesa Marin. This will be the last year the raceway is open. Developers bought out the Collins family and are planning to build homes on the site. Oh goody – more urban sprawl.

I have to admit I’ve never been to a race at Mesa Marin but I have actually raced around the track. When I was in high school I dated a local racecar driver for a while. One day he took me out there and I raced my little white rabbit around the track with him. That was fun.

I am sorry to see Mesa Marin go. It’s going to be weird to drive out to the canyon and not see it.
