Access denied

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has denied a local raceway from using the county airport as an exit Saturday.

Off and on for the past few years, Summit Motorsports Park has utilized the Huron County Airport runway as an exit after large events. An arrangement worked out months ago called for the raceway to use the airport five times this year for a fee of $2,000 per event.

The first of those five events was supposed to be Saturday for the Cavalcade of Stars, but airport officials did not submit the paperwork in time, so the FAA said no.

Bill Bader Jr., president of the raceway, didn't learn that their deal had fallen through until he read about it in the Norwalk Reflector on Thursday.

Stories about this subject were published in Thursday's and Friday's issues of the Norwalk Reflector.
