Oliver Wallen (11/14, Letters) calls the smoking ban at Kansas Speedway a joke. I could not agree with him more.
Many taxpaying, money-spending adults smoke. To virtually limit or ban their participation at the speedway as well as the great bars and restaurants in the metropolitan area is stupid. These smoking bans are not good for business or the tax base.
What happened to the saying “Smoking or nonsmoking” — especially at open air-venues like the speedway and the sports complex?
