“Due to Hunter Rick and his crew hitting an official, they have a lifetime ban and [are] no longer allowed on Wartburg Speedway property,” the track said in a Facebook post. “We have zero tolerance for touching an official. We do apologize to our fans and drivers that this happened but we are taking action on the situation.”

The track said that Donald, one of the men, being attacked by Rich is OK.

Wartburg Speedway is a 3/8th-mile dirt track located near Wartburg, Tennessee. The track has been in operation since the 1960s.

Tazewell Speedway, 411 Motor Speedway, and Mountain View Raceway have given him lifetime bans. He may have to relocate if he wants to continue his racing career.

“Due to what occurred at Wartburg Speedway last night, we are going to get in line with them and Hunter rich will not be allowed on Tazewell Speedway property,” their Facebook post said. “This has no place anywhere much less the race track. We hope all others feel the same way.”
