Let's look at the situation here:

* Remote place.
* Lax Security.
* "Multiple" points of entry (IIRC, HC&S actually uses part of the strip to access fields bordering the dragstrip. Nevermind the fact that Hawaiian Cement has an open entrance just across the Animal Shelter (popular with the drifters) and less than a mile from the MRP entrance. And HC&S can't exactly patrol much of their fields.)
* (insert accusation here)

And I don't know about the Tractor theory: Unless the vandals hauled in a tractor a/or hijacked a HC&S tractor, I find that scenario unlikely. Maybe a beater truck or SUV.

My guess: Either bad blood in the organization/area (i've heard some of the "organizations" at the park are real dicks), bored teenagers with a maui cruizer, or just plain psycho.

Can't really disagree with you, Impact. Just a shame, though...

I'm sorta leaning to the bad blood scenario. I e-mailed a contact of mine, and he provided quite a story:

Yeah, I have to agree with you. When you have several different organizations fighting for their slice of the Maui Raceway Park pie, your bound to have some friction.

(huge chunk of the e-mail redacted due to unverifiable claims)

And thats when I was active in (organization name redacted). I can only imagine if it got worse after I left.

Some of the problems could be easily solved if the Parks Department maintained the place abit, and the other organizations actually got along instead of fighting each other. Especially the (organization name redacted). Some of us actually joked once to bring rifles and "undertake target practice."
Will be interesting to see how this plays out.

is it karma?... or drama?...lol. and that's why tracks need to be privately owned, so there's an iron hand rule and security 24/7.

hmmm.... this has been said before, somewhere, i can't remember where

You have no idea how much stuff I had to edit out just to avoid possible slander and libel charges. Some of the claim my contact said are pretty damning (if true, mind you). I'm just lucky the gun remark got away with just me editing out the organizations name. If the sort of thing happening there could incite such an off-the-cuff remark, who knows what else could happen (or did, given what just happened).

Maui has better gun laws than Oahu.
