Governor said all non-essential businesses are to shut down!!! We love racing but such is not essential to life!!!

Guess you missed the part of his news conference where someone asked him if the PA dirt racing tracks were included and he said NO.
But he also stated that they look at what decision was best for interest of the situation at hand.
As of this afternoon Port Royal has cancelled.

Gov. Wolf says he will NOT force race tracks to close, while also ordering statewide shutdown amid COVID-19 outbreak.

The Grove and Lincoln have also cancelled for the weekend.

Maybe rain and cold Temps has something to do with it. Or the fact people are being laid off.

Oh yeah I'd hate for you not to be able to go to the races I'm sure that's the most important thing going on right now selfish idiot you probably want to still go out to dinner and don't understand why everyone is staying home this just the flu right I hope all the bozos with that cavalier attitude don't have to pay the piper and worst of all you're putting other people at risk but oh man if racetracks close you just won't be happy I sure hope you get your way (not).

You want to talk about a "selfish Idiot" a man with a mindless and opened ended decision to shut down our State. Unlike him at his home on Melody lane with no worry's. I as a small business owner can NOT afford to shut down for 1 day let alone week's months only god knows how long. I have to shut my business down in the construction field where I have to talk to no one face to face or touch anything anyone else has touched who could possibly have A virus that I have now control over, but yet beer distributors can function at there normal business schedule🤔. The repercussions of this are not Going to hurt my business in a month or so but into the future with my billing not getting processed.. did he even think before he did this? But hey gotta thank Trump every year I get my taxes done for the 20% tax break for Small businesses....

You know, it's more than they way you paint it. Racing season, (real racing season, not the France family's WWE on wheels), is human interaction, and some of us need that. Human interaction is not a luxury it is how we are designed. I know people whose mental health is already at risk over this, because they really are that social. It is real and necessary for them.
The other very real concern here, is that we are accepting the complete surrender of our constitution and now that have done it once, we can be persuaded to do it any time.
Not so selfish.

My dad drove late models in the early 70's at North Hills, Butler, Mercer, Blanket Hill, and occasionally Tri City. We won the last late model track championship at Blanket Hill.
