Night races still banned
Placeholder Image
It is official – no more night races will be approved by the city of McMinnville until safety concerns can be addressed. During Tuesday night’s Board of Mayor and Aldermen meeting, officials voted to uphold a Safety Committee decision made Aug. 25 to stop approving night races until the city has time to make changes to the existing policy. The measure was passed unanimously by Mayor Jimmy Haley, Vice Mayor Ben Newman, and Aldermen Mike Neal, Jimmy Bonner, Ryle Chastain, Steve Harvey and Everett Brock.
