What Florida House and Senate waste time with..Burial URNS

NASCAR fans who can’t seem to fathom never leaving Daytona International Speedway and Homestead Miami Speedway may just get their wish.

Proposed legislation in the Florida House and Senate would allow construction of an on-site columbarium — a building or structure that houses urns — at both Daytona and Homestead, according to the Daytona Beach News-Journal.



If the bill passes, which means it would be law July 1, fans could have their ashes laid to rest at the speedways.

International Speedway Corp. spokesman Lenny Santiago told the News-Journal that many NASCAR fans have inquired about having their final resting place at Daytona. "We have a lot of fans that are very, very loyal to NASCAR races and to Daytona in general. This opens that door, this bill, and we're hopeful that this will get passed," Santiago said, according to the newspaper.

There is a precedent already set in the state of Florida. The University of Florida, a main supporter of the university columbarium law that passed in 2009, has a plan for its columbarium but has not built it yet and has no pricing structure, said Chris Brazda, a spokesman for the University of Florida Foundation.

Santiago told the newspaper that there isn’t a proposed location nor any idea of the cost to fans who are interested in having their ashes stored at the track.

Who's to say nut cases wouldn't just spread ashes on top of the grounds some how instead of paying to have the family or friend placed there in the special place.

Grosse thought. Glad I won't be going to Daytona in my near future!

Nah, they should do that at the Fontana track instead.
It was already a cemetery this past weekend! :lol:
