LPGA Commissioner Jim Ritts is profiled in USA TODAY. Ritts: "Three years from now, I don't care if the generic golf fans can point to one thing specifically, that connects to the LPGA, but I want them to feel the presence of the LPGA to a greater degree. You take all these isolated incidents -- TV shows, magazine articles -- put them together, and you have a quilt of visibility" (USA TODAY, 2/21)....Bruton Smith, head of Speedway Motorsports and developer of the new Texas Motor Speedway in Ft. Worth, used SpeedWeeks in Daytona to deliver a "public pledge of allegiance" to NASCAR President Bill France Jr. Smith's purchase of Bristol Int'l Raceway in TN had led some to believe he might be planning a rival stock-car circuit. Smith, who "steadfastly" denied that rumor: "I'm committed to NASCAR forever" (FT. WORTH STAR-TELEGRAM, 2/21).
