STADIUM NOTES

     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).
