Morris and Gerald wish to express a heartfelt Thank You to all the following people and organizations. The hundreds of four wheelers, atv’s, Utv’s that have come to the Crawford Ranch Off Road Park over the last year and helped us build a beautiful off road play area. To Chris Lietner and his partners in Baja Race Texas who instilled a dream of desert racing in the Panhandle. To their sponsors who collectively spent thousands of dollars promoting these desert races for Amarillo. The Cities of Amarillo and Dumas. To Emily of the Amarillo Chamber of Commerce, Tourism division, To the Route 66 sixth street board of directors, The Hotel and Motel industry, Amarillo Offroad, To Pioneer Natural Gas and Mr.Hatfield, Mr Paris, and Mr Ausbrooks for all their work and efforts at securing the gas feeds on the ranch. And all the rest of the various sponsors who backed having professional racing in the Amarillo area. All these people and more have helped with everything from moral support to physical labor to spending thousands in fuel in their own vehicles in building trails ,repairing fences, rounding up stray cattle after the flood, rebuilding water gaps, manufacturing and installing swing gates, installing signs all at no charge to the park or it’s owners or the lease holder. The Race Car drivers for bringing their cars, trophy trucks and buggies at their own expense to promote the races. Channel 10 TV for covering the events. Again we say Thank You.
Now for the other part of this letter. Effective immediately CRAWFORD RANCH OFF ROAD PARK is closed. This is due to one individual who even though it cost him nothing and he was not involved in any way in the development or operation of the park wants it closed and no wheeling, races or anything else there. What this has effectively done is destroy the dreams and hard work of hundreds of people and cost them thousands of dollars as well as the cities of Amarillo, Dumas and other towns in the Texas Panhandle hundreds of thousands of dollars in lost revenue from the tens of thousands of race fans and race teams. No full hotels several times a year, no sixth street daylong parties, no shopping in our stores, or the restaurant’s, no thousands of dollars in fuel. No future of the Panhandle becoming the desert racing capital of the nation with the finest race facility around. All this was done by one person who put enormous pressure upon the owners of the Crawford Ranch. If he was driven by greed I could understand but he neither gains from or costs him anything whether the wheeling or races take place or not. For all of you he has hurt, we ask that you not hate him for what he has done., We ask that you pray for him, someone so full of hate for his fellow man that he deliberately wants to destroy the hopes and plans of so many others truly needs your payers. God Bless you and again Thank You all for your support. Gerald Owens and Morris Mullican

I'd like the name of the person so against it. 10 Internet points for anyone who can find out.

Really is too bad. The place got better and better every time I went out. Sad.

Hard to see one jackass have such an impact on the owner of Crawford..... From what I always heard was she loved the wheeling and atmosphere? It's her fuckin land. I wanted to go out there when my YJ is complete. Wonder of there were death threats involved? Odd for something to happen that fast and dramatic....

So whats the deal with crawford ranch? It shouldn't be hard to find out who is responsible. There has to be a land owner, more than likely there is a tenant. I would assume the tenant is the one who has been running the park? So with that assumption that would rule him/her out. I mean really who has the power to close down the ranch to wheelers other than the tenant or the land owner?

And do they really expect us to pray for this asshole?
