Here's an interesting article by Robin Miller regarding the International Speedway Corporation (ISC) vs. Champ Car "feud" in Pheonix, AZ. If I am reading it correctly, LN/Monster Jam may have to cross Bank One Ballpark off the schedule.

yea ur reading it correctly... add pheonix to the cities with f'd up sports laws... (potentially) i mean it says it at the bottom... "If the bill passes, then it's law, and in one stroke that eliminates any law suit and any other kind of racing that's not in a controlled environment. That includes, motocross, autocross, karting, rallys and even the IRL."
contolled motorsports facility....@#%$, does that include stadiums too? they arent "motorsports facilities." that woudl eliminate all monster trucks where ever the bill reaches, not just bank one ballpark, unless they had a show at PIR (which they aint

I would think a controlled environment would include Chase Field and Cardinals Stadium. Then MTs would hopefully be safe. If MTs get wiped out cause of this bill, i say we riot!!!>:

teh quote is controlled "motorsports" envirnemnt... eh, take it as you will...hard to tell what they mean

If Motocross would be eliminated......then so would MTs. They both compete in stadiums/arenas. I hope the legislation falls flat on its face. If ISC's lobbyists can make the case that Champ Car would cut into NASCAR's market base, then they could make that same case for Monster Jam, Motocross, etc. Also, this is starting to smell like the makings of a monopoly situation. Someone oughta give the France family and ISC a reality check.
Oh, snap! 100 posts :b

if brian france knew reality then he wouldnt screw NAACAR up so badly

Kalkoven made a point of including monster trucks in his interviews about the bill. I don't believe all his rhetoric that it's all NASCAR, but I believe that if it passes it is a dangerous precedent.
The issue is not NASCAR but rather ISC and Bruton Smith. They weren't very happy with CART when they suddenly canceled the 2000 Texas race, now I think they hold the grudge against ChampCar as CART's successor.

I saw this on wind tunnel a long time ago and the dude said it included MTs :/

I don't see how ISC can still be mad about the CART race at Texas never happening. I understand they lost some money but it's better than bad publicity that they would've gotten had a driver been killed at the event. It was unsafe and CART did the right thing.

I think they felt CART owed them some money for it, and they would have liked a reschedule or something and not a flat cancelation the morning of the race. I just think there's more to the story than just NASCAR being "big evil conglomo".
