Re: Kentucky Speedway sues NASCAR
I was under the impression (I'm sure I read it somewhere), that Carroll had talked with NASCAR before Kentucky Speedway was ever built and was promised that they'd get a race after the track had been open for five years or so.
Privately funded tracks aren't built on speculation; it's just too darned expensive... I always read that Carroll and NASCAR were in constant touch throughout Kentucky Speedway's construction. In addition, NASCAR was in on and approved the track design.
They had all their ducks in a row before the first piece of ground was dug up. What happened?
And it's not that the drivers don't like it... quite the opposite, in fact, as the Bush drivers always seem to rave about the track after they race there.
