After the post hit Facebook many racers and fans took the time to show their support and encouragement for the decision that Palmer Family is putting into getting the track back up to speed. They also were very supportive of the companies that have stepped up to help fix the track.
One race fan went as far as to say -
I think when you finally announce the RE Opening of the 2023 season. It will be a SOLD OUT crowd for many weeks. Nobody in the race world can be blind to the effort that is being put forth by the Palmer family and Accord Track crew and volunteers. (via Facebook - Jason - The Official Accord Speedway)
