VENERABLE ST. ANDREWS GETS IN THE FAST LANE WITH NASCAR
Published October 12, 1995
NASCAR has granted an exclusive license to Saint Andrews Golf Corp. to own, operate, and manage a series of NASCAR speedparks nationwide. The speedparks will operate either as part of a multi-sport themed "All-American SportsPark" or as an independent racing facility. Saint Andrews has also entered into exclusive deals with MLB and Callaway Golf for the "All-American SportsPark." The first facility is scheduled to open late summer '96 in Irvine, CA, with a site in Las Vegas shortly thereafter. NASCAR hopes to have eight other facilities open by the end of '97. Helping the project is Harris Production Services, which will be overall producer of the Las Vegas project, Ellerbe Becket Inc., which will assist in the design and development of the parks, and EME Entertainment Design, which will oversee the created and conceptual designs (NASCAR).
