Club Spring Mountain News - June 2014

Celebrate our 10th Anniversary: 2004 - 2014

Reflections on ten memorable years

Ten years have flown by since 01-AerialViewSMJune2014Spring Mountain partners purchased 193-acres of desert land with a 2.2-mile road course, a driving school with a fleet of 8 Corvettes, two tent structures and portable restrooms. In the early days a Mobile office building was utilized for classroom operations (with flushable toilets) while the first building was constructed and the track gradually expanded. The rest is history. A visionary's dreams led us to the destination we now call Spring Mountain Motor Resort & Country Club. Reality has far surpassed the partners' expectations, and we are still striving to create a motorsports experience second-to-none in the world.

During this journey we have been thankful to work with the most incredible staff, many of whom have been with us since the beginning, and all who share our passion for providing exceptional products and services to our valued Club members, their families and friends. Russ Meads, our General Contractor, built the entire facility and paved the way through countless miles of local, state and federal red tape to make it happen. Russ, along with the phenomenal members of our staff, are the primary reason for our success.

02-clubOur accomplishments would never have been possible without the support of our loyal and enthusiastic Club members who encouraged our ideas and were alongside us every step of the way. Please join us in celebrating a remarkable ten years of growth, innovation and achievements at Club Spring Mountain! During the next few months the 10th Anniversary festivities will be announced and we look forward to seeing all of our Club members in attendance.

We are grateful for your support and encouragement, and thank you sincerely for believing in the dream. It's been an eventful ride and the best is yet to come as we make plans for the next ten years.

Our new security entrance ensures that members will have security guards manning the entrance and patrolling the facility 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. A high-resolution 5 x 15 Jumbo tron screen with graphics and video will soon display events for drivers on Highway 160.

Model homes for Spring Mountain Estates begin in June and CEO John Morris' residence will be completed and ready for move-in mid-August.
