NASCAR has expanded its NASCAR SpeedPark go-cart concept to include stand-alone projects exclusively with Myrtle Beach, SC-based Burroughs & Chapin Co. The NASCAR SpeedParks were initially designed to be a part of St. Andrews' All-American SportsPark concept, which will debut in Las Vegas later this year. But NASCAR VP/Licensing & Consumer Products George Pyne said, "The demand for the NASCAR SpeedPark concept has led us to developing stand- alone projects." The first SpeedPark will be built in Myrtle Beach and feature eight tracks, with plans to develop 10 more sites over a two-year period (NASCAR). DAYS OF THUNDER: A NASCAR Thunder store, "a sort of Disney store for racing fans," will open in Phoenix next month, according to Glen Creno of the ARIZONA REPUBLIC. There are currently six stores, with four others, including the one in Phoenix, to open before the end of the year. Ten more stores "are planned" for '98 (ARIZONA REPUBLIC, 9/18).
