A dream project proposed by Pikeville Mayor Philip Cagle and approved by the Pikeville Board of Mayor and Aldermen last July became a reality last week as a burnout pad was poured on Main Street directly in front of the Bledsoe County Courthouse.
The burnout pad for cars is essentially a concrete area with anchors to chain the cars in place as they do burnouts and spectators watch explained Mayor Cagle. He believes the project will be a major draw for car enthusiasts and will in turn boost other local businesses. The Mayor came up with the idea as something unique to set Pikeville apart from other towns.
