The new Texas Motor Speedway is planning the first major Indy-car Race ever held at night and is expecting a sellout crowd of 175,000, according to the FT. WORTH STAR-TELEGRAM. Speedway GM Eddie Gossage said the race would probably be held in '97 and would be nationally televised. He said representatives from both IndyCar and the IRL plan to tour the speedway next month (FT. WORTH STAR TELEGRAM, 12/8)....Insurance broker Larry Share said he is no longer working to solicit $250,000 pledges for advance tickets to help build an arena for the Panthers. Share gave up efforts because of a "chill response" from Broward County official Jack Osterholt (Fort Lauderdale SUN-SENTINEL, 12/8).
