Hello all,

At the following link you'll find a "Petition to Save Kalaeloa Raceway Park".  We're asking for your help and support in gathering signatures via the following request:

"We the undersigned petition the Hawaiian Homes Commission and the Department of Hawaiian Home Lands to
preserve the race track set up by SORT LLC because it is unique and there is no other race track available on the
island of Oahu and there is no other place to bring Hawaiian and other youths at risk to teach them automobile
and truck mechanics, suspensions and body and fender dynamics and repairs and the taking away of this facility
and training area will irreparably harm these children and teenagers in both the Hawaiian community and the
community at large. We respectfully request the Hawaiian Homes Commission to reconsider its past action taken
on June 16, 2014 and hold another public meeting where we can attend and give testimony about the value of this
facility."

Kalaeloa Raceway Park: The Video

All of us here at Kalaeloa Raceway Park would like to give a huge MAHALO to Gerard Elmore & his crew for coming out and putting together this wonderful video of our track in action! And another big MAHALO to Cliff Poteet (Mini-Truck & Hula-X racer) for introducing Gerard to the Grace Ohana & KRP. Filmed with Black Magic Cameeras in an anamorphic presentation, this is one epic video. Please enjoy and share with your friends and let'em know there's more to come in 2014!

KRP Video - HWN Affairs Committee - Jan 17th, 2014 - Watch now!

Hello Racers and Supporters,

We have posted the video from the Hawaiian Affairs Committee Briefing held on Jan 17th, 2014.

If you have been following the story thus far by watching our videos, you will know that we had given the Department of Hawaiian Home Lands (DHHL) until December 31st to contact us with a plan to address and resolve our issues concerning Kalaeloa Raceway Park.

As a result of this, we reached out to our Senators and requested an informational briefing on the actions of DHHL with the Hawaiian Affairs Committee, that was then held on Friday, January 17th at the State Capitol. We considered this the to be the next step in resolving our current situation.

The end result of this meeting was that the Hawaiian Affairs Committee recognized the problems derived from DHHL's actions, including a Personality Driven administration and the fact that DHHL has the right to exempt their properties from permitting requirements such as the letter originally allowing KRP to operate without them plus the other companies that are continuing to be exempted.

In addition, the Comittee identified that Kalaeloa Raceway Park detrimentally relied on the guidance provided initially by DHHL, and asked DHHL whether they could grandfather and work out our issues due to that detrimental reliance.  It was also suggested that DHHL recognize our need and allow us to use the lower portion of our property as originally agreed to in our revocable permit.

We are very pleased that the Senate recognized our issues and look forward to sitting down with DHHL with a proposed solution.We'll keep  you updated on our progress and thank you for your support.

The video contains testimony and Q&A from  DHHL, KRP owner Mr. George Grace III, Sabrina Grace, Michael Kitchens, and the Hawaiian Affairs Committee.

Of special note, please follow the links to specific segments of the briefing:
