One idea is to build a motor sports complex, but tribal members have failed to approve it the three times they've voted on it.

 

J.P. Patt is a former chairman of the tribes and supports the racetrack plan.

 

For passage they need a third of tribal membes to vote and of them a majority must approve it.

 

He says they haven't be able to do that.

 

"You can look at it a number of different ways.  People aren't interested in it so they are not going to vote or we didn't do enough getting information out and being convincing enough about it, explaining it so they say, yeah it's a good project and I'm gonna vote for it."

 

Patt says they haven't made a decision yet whether they will go out a fourth time to seek approval for the racing complex that would include a racetrack, a drag strip plus an RV park and hotels.
