(February 15, 2003)
After two successful seasons at the Orange Show Fairgrounds, there will not be speedway at the facility in 2003. Arrowhead Motor Speedway Promoter Charlie Venegas is very disappointed to make the announcement. Venegas stated that the fair board increased the lease to amount that wasn't financially feasible to maintain a weekly speedway show at the fairgrounds. Venegas had a tentative schedule in place for 2003, including an AMA National Championship round, and felt that the negotiations for a new lease would be reasonable. Unfortunately, that was not the case.

Venegas was also informed that the fair board had sought out other promoters in Southern California to possibly promote speedway at the site. Apparently, those promoters also felt the lease was unreasonable and negotiations never got off the ground. Venegas feels that the fair board negotiated with him in bad faith by never directly informing him that they were seeking the possibility of other promoters. That, coupled with the notion that the fair board was entertaining the idea of promoting speedway themselves, forced Venegas to threaten legal action. Although Venegas doesn't feel that the Orange Show could successfully promote speedway themselves, due to a lack of knowledge of the sport, he felt he needed to protect his investment.

All of the news coming out of San Bernardino isn't bad, however, as Venegas already has one iron in the fire with regard to a new location. Venegas has been negotiating with the city of San Bernardino about a possible location that is approximately one mile from the Orange Show. Venegas also stated that the city actually called him when informed about the Orange Show. Venegas has been working closely with the city council and with the mayor about the new venue.

Venegas was upbeat when during the conversation and is confident that a deal can be in place before the beginning of the 2003 season, which was tentatively set for Wednesday, May 7.He said that the new facility will be much bigger than the Orange Show facility and also much better. The size and shape of the track may change as well with Venegas considering making the track longer and wider. With a new facility may also come a new race night. Venegas feels that a switch to Friday night would benefit fans, riders, and himself.

He feels that Friday is better because most fans and riders will not have to work the next day and he's hoping to attract more riders from the Bakersfield area on a more consistent basis. He realized that one repercussion of a switch to Friday night would be fewer visits from Northern California riders.
