I chalk this up to some of the wacky things that we can do in the
desert around here.  The current owner bought the place from Tex
Earnhardt.  Tex on a bull during is auto commercials was just another
interesting sight when I moved here.  I think you captured the idea.
I am guessing that the new owner picked up his planes at the bone yard
here https://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=15/32.5122/-111.3239.
Although some of those planes look like they are in restored
condition.

"We are the only private motorsports club that incorporates an FAA
approved private airport, luxury trackside casitas, residential lots
for sale, observation tower and private member garages with the finest
racing and touring road course anywhere in the country.[1]

"With membership fees ranging from $7,000 to $120,000, plus annual
fees of $3,000 to $12,000, this is a country club for well-heeled
motorsports enthusiasts.[2]

"Auto magnate Tex Earnhardt, whose TV commercials gained him fame by
spouting the catchphrase "That ain't no bull," turns 80 on
Thursday.[3]
