Lawyers for Hot Rod Hill are drafting an "order setting bond" to be considered in district court, which would allow for the reopening of the track during appeals. But that opening could be short lived if approved.
Once the bond is delivered, the plaintiffs say they will counter with a bond of their own that would keep the track shut down.
Hot Rod Hill was closed in a court ruling after neighbors argued too much noise was coming from the track.
