I had the chance to take a tour of the new LAS VEGAS MOTOR SPEEDWAY facility this past week. I got the ten-cent show-around from the folks building and promoting this new facility.

They claim they will be open in August of 1996 and already have commitments and dates from NHRA, IRL, CART and NASCAR (cars and trucks). The BIG question? F1. They say F1 Commander Bernie Ecclestone has visited the place twice already and likes what he sees.

They have a HUGE earthmoving project going on there...they are definitely building this place.

I'll try to answer any questions you may have.
