"According to the BLM, M.O.R.E. is now going to be the only Car/Truck Race organization allowed to put on Races in the Barstow/Lucerne area. In light of this there will be a merging of M.O.R.E. and MDR racers. Our M.O.R.E. racers practice fairness and good sportsmanship and make every effort to abide by the rules, I greatly appreciate that, I would expect nothing less from any new racer coming on board. In My opinion we are very fortunate to be able to continue the sport we all love, Therefore It is very important that we all pull together to make our organization run safety and efficiently.
I would greatly appreciate everyone cooperation in an effort to keep this sport alive."

LOS ANGELES—The Bureau of Land Management has suspended future event permits for the promoter of last weekend's off-road race in the California desert where eight spectators were killed by a racing truck.
The federal agency said Thursday the suspension of any MDR Productions permits will remain in effect while an investigation of the accident is under way.
The spectators were killed Saturday night during the California 200 off-road race in the Mojave Desert northeast of Los Angeles. Ten other spectators were injured.
Video of the accident showed spectators gathered along the edge of the narrow dirt course as trucks sped past. One truck went out of control and overturned in the crowd.

AUGUST 17, 2010:
MDR has cancelled it's previously scheduled September 4, desert off-road race. The BLM reports no permit was issued for the event and no directions from Barstow have been received by the El Centro Office about any future events with MDR.
Considering the 'National Review' underway, the balance of the MDR 2010 racing schedule is questionable. BRN
So…to sum the future of Plaster City Racing up in one word…the word would be YES. Until I hear differently we will continue to get ready for our race.""
