    The company that put the show on for the Baltimore Grand Prix back in September is having trouble paying area businesses for work they did to prepare downtown for the race.

    Glen Burnie company Sunrise Safety Services say they could go bankrupt if Baltimore Racing Development fails to pay them for work they did during the race that included putting up concrete barriers. Sunrise claims Baltimore Grand Prix owes them $200,000 dollars.



    The race organizers claimed they did not expect to turn a profit in the first year, but now other contractors are worried they won’t get paid.

    Baltimore Grand Prix is facing lawsuits alleging $1.6 million in unpaid bills despite selling 110,000 tickets, and now the city is having doubts about the company being able to host next years race.

    Organizers expected to sell more tickets for the race than they sold.
