South Georgia Motorsports Park Co-Owner Turns Herself In

| August 26, 2014

RacetrackCECIL, GA – One co-owner of the South Georgia Motorsports Park in Cecil turned herself in on Monday afternoon, after officials from the Georgia Department of Revenue padlocked the entrance to the motor sports park.

According to reports, Kimberly Wood turned herself in at the Cook County Sheriff’s Office around 2 p.m. Monday afternoon. She is being charged with one count of felony theft by taking-sales and one count of felony theft by taking-withholding.

The Cook County Superior Court has designated Albany Attorney Chris Cohilas as the court appointed receiver for the business and he will now be in charge of operations.

Initial reports claim that Wood failed to turn over at least $90,000 in sales tax revenue to the state, but investigators believe the amount could go up after they look at the tracks financial records form the past seven years.

The racetrack will be open during the Labor Day weekend, despite the current investigation.

District attorney Dick Perryman filed a civil action lawsuit in the Cook County Superior Court Monday morning against Wood and her husband Rowland Wood Jr., but as of Monday night Kimberly Wood was the only one facing charges.
