Club Spring Mountain News - April 2018

Experience the Ultimate Adrenaline Rush

New Beginnings and Big Plans for the Future of the Club


01 hwy signJoin the fun at Club Spring Mountain for a lifestyle of adrenaline pursuits and more.
Drive the longest road course in North America and try our 6.1-mile circuit in a myriad of configurations. 8 different varieties are on the calendar this month alone to test your skills! With the sun shining year-round on our oasis in the desert, we are forecasting a bright future ahead for our members with new amenities to experience. Now is the time to make Club Spring Mountain your home away from home.

Talk about first impressions! Nobody will miss us now...a new electronic billboard soaring 30 feet into the desert skies was recently erected at the entrance to the facility on Highway 160. The landmark, designed by High Impact Signs, measures 16x16 feet with a 12'x8' electronic display, featuring the Spring Mountain logo rising above the platform at the summit. This illuminated landmark is guaranteed to light up the area day and night.

02 brandonchelseababyA big welcome to our newest members, Albert Youngwerth and Nathan Schweigart. And a shout-out to our youngest new member, Brixton Rambo, Brandon and Chelse's newborn son, who enjoyed some rookie seat time at last month's race weekend.

Bring your friends who have been wanting to drive on the Spring Mountain track and enjoy the festivities.

Mike Weeks, VP of Sales, can tell you more about how to own a piece of paradise. Call Mike today at 949-235-7810 to see available parcels.

05 track plotWe are still growing strong, with plans being formulated for the acquisition and development of 620 acres adjacent to the facility. The BLM land makes it possible for us to build new track, more paddock areas, and even an airstrip capable of landing our members' jets. We currently have the longest track in North America, but our goal is to build the longest road course in the world. The proposed layout at right is a schematic of a 16.07-mile track with countless numbers of potential driving configurations. (Please note this layout is subject to change.)

Our $13.4 Million Water and Sewer Treatment project is continuing on schedule and is nearly complete. The cul-de-sac lots have had their final grade, and paving of the area will continue during the next two weeks, with a final cap expected at the end of the month. Silverton Casino Resort’s plans are moving along for its mixed-use development project on a 7-acre portion of the commercial land at the entrance. The project is expected to break ground in the summer of 2018.

None of our progress would be possible without your enthusiasm and confidence, and we thank you sincerely for your membership.

Looking forward to seeing you at the Club this month!

Future development to the north will include a 5200 foot runway, also utilized as a drag strip, and an air park.

Facility Development Update

Big Changes to the Skyline Coming Soon

03 Water TanksHere's the latest news from the construction zone...significant progress has been made on the $13.4 Million Water and Sewer Treatment Project. Paving on the main road from the Aquatic center to existing member’s homes has just been completed. The massive water tanks to supply the development have been installed and are scheduled for painting. Water, sewer, electric and fiber services have been connected for all track side lots, and a six foot block wall is under construction along property lines. Soon the primary sewer tanks will arrive on the property, and weather permitting, we remain on schedule for completion of the project this spring.

Planning for the new Spring Mountain Commercial Center, which will be open to the public, is progressing rapidly. Nevada Department of Transportation approved a separate entrance to the commercial center, and Silverton Resort & Casino's team of developers are conducting traffic studies, drainage and electrical line surveys prior to the beginning of construction. Ground is expected to break this summer on a major brand 110 room all-suite hotel and casino with over 200 slots, 5 game tables, a sports book and café, along with restaurant and retail opportunities. Phase II of Spring Mountain Commercial Center is now in the conceptual stage, so stay tuned for more news in the near future.

Excitement is building for Spring Mountain Estates04 Member Home Under Development, our private residential development with 80 custom lots, as we will soon see construction starts on Club member’s fabulous new homes around the perimeter of the track. More members are buying lots on-property and trackside to build the home of their dreams.

The Energy Project Next Door

Energy Storage Train to be built near Spring Mountain

05 aresA unique clean energy development is now underway in our own back yard. Advanced Rail Energy Storage, LLC “ARES” was recently granted a lease by the Bureau of Land Management on acreage near Spring Mountain. The 50-megawatt project will be comprised of 106 acres of public land with a goal to help stabilize the electric grid.

Using the power of gravity, ARES Nevada will store energy and release it when needed. As the system doesn’t require the use of water, it is perfect for the desert with minimal environmental impact. Using a railroad track on a 7.2% slope, multiple electric locomotive cars move up the grade as they receive excess power from solar and wind power plants during sunny and windy days. The train cars will remain available and, when needed, will be dispatched slowly downhill, using their motor-generators to return power to the electricity grid.

This is the first project of its kind in the world, requiring no water or fossil fuels, and creating no hazardous waste or emissions – right here in Pahrump, Nevada!

For more information about the project, visit the ARES website.

Spring Mountain Expansion

BLM Land Acquisition News

04 BLM propertyJoel Oscarson, Director of Strategic Development, reports we are steadily moving forward with the purchase of the land adjacent to the track from the Bureau of Land Management. Joel notes, "The land is nearly 630 acres and located directly to the north and east of the facility. The small section of land connecting the northern and eastern parcels is of great strategic value due to the connectivity of the two vital areas of the property. That section must be configured to mitigate an issue with the West Wide Energy Corridor (WWEC); therefore the parcel was designed to support the land release to submit to the BLM. The process of purchasing the land has begun and we have been given approximately 9 -12 months to close on the property. Delegates from both sides of party lines are involved with us to acquire the property to continue growth here at Spring Mountain."

Born in 1932, Carol was a huge supporter of her son Terry, his beautiful wife Monica, and the Club Spring Mountain experience in general. She loved being at the track and attended nearly every race, spending time with members and staff dispensing her sassy sense of humor. Nearly everyone had a funny story about Carol, and she was known for "eating her weight in cookies" when she visited the clubhouse.

You are invited to join Terry and Monica in the Radical Showroom Friday night, October 13 at 5:30 pm for a champagne toast to honor Carol's memory.

09 gary goulet fred chinClub Member Garrett W. Goulet passed at home July 30 from Cancer. Gary was born in Salem, Oregon in 1941, and grew up on a hop farm. He earned a BS in Civil Engineering from Oregon State University. While in Seattle, he met and married Dee Ann Day, his wife of forty-eight years. Gary and Dee Ann lived in Boise for over 40 years. Gary loved Porsches and bought his first one at age forty.

Member Fred Chin has known Gary for 10 years and loved his heart of gold and passion for Porsches. Fred shares his memories of Gary. "I remember chasing him around the course in his then black 997 GT3, my skills insufficient to negotiate a clean pass around him. Also I remember our discussions in the paddock where he relished how much he enjoyed driving. It was at that time I knew Gary was truly one of a kind."

"His enjoyment of driving and the ability to share those moments over cocktails will be my eternal memory of him and his love of Porsche. Gary, you will be in my fondest memories whenever I step into my Porsche. I hope to be driving with as much enjoyment, zest and enthusiasm as you showed me and as I complete each lap of life."
