PALACE SPORTS KILLS PLANS FOR TRACK AT MI STATE FAIRGROUNDS

          Palace Sports and Entertainment yesterday cited local
     opposition and "shelved" plans for a $40M auto race track at
     the MI State Fairgrounds, according to Jennifer Dixon of the
     DETROIT FREE PRESS.  Tom Wilson, President of Palace Sports
     and Entertainment: "We're not in business to be
     controversial or bad neighbors, and when it looked like it
     was going to be a constant struggle, we felt the prudent
     thing was to walk away."  Detroit Mayor Dennis Archer and
     neighborhood residents "fought the speedway" with engine
     noise and traffic concerns (DETROIT FREE PRESS, 1/31).
