The State Police has a message for a speedway in northern Kentucky: pay up.
KSP officials say the Kentucky Speedway owes nearly $300,000 for security provided at several major races
Records obtained through a Kentucky Open Records Act by the Courier-Journal show that—since at least summer--the KSP has been sending the speedway emails and letters requesting reimbursement. A letter sent in late December stated that the Kentucky Speedway owed a little over $299,000, and requested payment by mid-January.
KSP commander Rodney Brewer told the paper there hasn’t been any response to the letters or recent phone calls that were placed to the speedway. Brewer says he’s never before been in a position where someone with a contractual obligation with state police refused to pay.
The KSP commander says the money is owed under agreements the agency has with the speedway to provide uniformed troopers for security at events on speedway property.
