PALACE SPORTS KILLS PLANS FOR TRACK AT MI STATE FAIRGROUNDS
Published January 31, 1997
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).
