SPEEDWAY MOTORSPORTS CEO PURCHASES NORTH WILKESBORO SPEEDWAY
Published June 20, 1995
Speedway Motorsports President & CEO Bruton Smith "continued his pursuit" of auto racing tracks yesterday by buying 50% of all outstanding stock in NC's North Wilkesboro Speedway, reports Roland Martin in the FORT WORTH STAR-TELEGRAM. Smith already owns the Atlanta and Charlotte Motor Speedways, a 24% interest in Rockingham, and is building the Texas Motor Speedway in Texas's southern Denton County. North Wilkesboro is the oldest charter member track in NASCAR's Winston Cup circuit. With the increasing popularity of the sport, NASCAR drivers and sponsors have been "clamoring" for NASCAR to take the sport to larger venues, but Smith has no plans to move one of the track's two Winston Cup racing dates (FT WORTH STAR-TELEGRAM, 6/20).
