WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Britt Motorsports filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy back in October 2011 with plans to stay open, but a sign on its door says the shop is closed with hopes to reopen Feb. 1, and owner Scott Britt was recently arrested in Cumberland County for writing a bad check.
A former employee says he is unsure of what the future holds for the shop, but he believes Britt will return to business.
"Because of how deeply ingrained this is in Scott's blood, and his son's blood and his father's blood, there will never be a time when Scott Britt doesn't run something in the motorcycle industry in North Carolina," former Britt service manager Kenneth Bolukbas said.
We tried to talk with Scott Britt today, but he referred us to his attorney, who has not called us back.
In a text, Britt said the plan to reopen his store Feb. 1 is still tentative.
