Sheriff Donny Youngblood sent a request for additional law enforcement for the March Meet at Famoso Raceway next month.

The motion would provide 23 deputies at the meet over the course of three days and would cost just under $13,000. According to Youngblood this "will be paid for by the owner of the race track."

The meet is scheduled from March 2 to March 4.
