Statement from Texas Motor Speedway President Eddie Gossage regarding published reports about being approached for an executive position with the National Hockey League:

"It's flattering to have my name linked to a possible opportunity, but I have not spoken to anyone from the NHL. The speculation surrounding me says a lot about the growth and popularity of NASCAR and its place among today's mainstream sports.

But I have the dream job right now and the perfect relationship with SMI [Speedway Motorsports, Inc.] Chairman Bruton Smith. I have no intention of leaving Texas Motor Speedway and my personal goal is to be here as long as Tom Landry was with the Dallas Cowboys. He is, in my mind, the icon of sporting success in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex and that remains a lofty goal for me to reach someday."
