Royal Purple Raceway announces a meeting with all surrounding local residents, facility spectators, and event participants to inform the general public of the disputed business operations of HPP.

DATE & TIME:                         Thursday, March 21, 2013 @ 7:00 p.m.

PLACE:                                    The Tower Club at Royal Purple Raceway (Gate 2)

SUBJECT MATTER:                  HPP:  Industrial waste disposal site adjacent to Royal Purple Raceway and SH 99 (The Grand Parkway)

It is Royal Purple Raceway’s position that the neighboring HPP operation will have both short and long term negative impacts to the facility, the hundreds of thousands of patrons who visit our venue every year, the thousands of participants that compete at our facility, and greatly impact the health of the surrounding residents and businesses. 

HPP’s business operation is officially classified as a recycler with the State of Texas, however, the industrial material that is entering the property is being permanently disposed in unlined, unprotected sand pits, that sit below the water table.  The operator claims that this material will then be recycled and reused as base in crushed concrete.  HPP’s history at its other facility in Harris County, Texas indicates that the vast quantity of the incoming industrial waste will never be recycled into crushed concrete and remain permanently buried in the ground.  This practice exposes the entire surrounding environment (i.e. water, land, and air contamination) which will result in long term consequences.                                                                                                                    

Additionally, HPP plans to erect a Concrete Crushing plant used to make crushed concrete base.  This operation will result in massive amounts of debris and dust spilling over into an outdoor sporting venue potentially effecting on track race car performance, track safety, and expose thousands of people to harmful air pollutants.

We sincerely ask your presence on Thursday, March 21, 2013 at 7:00 p.m. so that we may better educate everyone to the extreme consequences of allowing a business of this nature to operate next door to Royal Purple Raceway.
