Gregg Kolbaba, a Craig native, overlooks the stock car track he is building in April at Thunder Ridge Motor Sports Park south of Craig. Kolbaba hoped to have the first stock car race on June 4, but wet weather pushed the opening day back to June 24.

Gregg Kolbaba was shooting for a June 4 opening of his new stock car track south of the Moffat County Landfill. One determining factor for the opening, Kolbaba said, was how wet the spring in Craig would be. After heavy rain, Kolbaba said he was basically sidelined from sculpting the land into what it needs to be. “We couldn’t even come in here when it was wet,” he said. “There was standing water everywhere and we really couldn’t do anything.”
