DOVER DOWNS BUYS NASHVILLE SPEEDWAY USA; PLANS FOR NEW TRACK
Published November 10, 1997
DE-based Dover Downs Entertainment Inc. has acquired Nashville Speedway USA with the intention of building a new speedway in another location "in the near future," according to Joe Caldwell of the NASHVILLE BANNER. Gaylord Entertainment will become a minority partner in the project. The new speedway initially will seat about 50,000, "with the ability to expand that right from the start." Dover Downs President & CEO Denis McGlynn said that no plans are set to try to get a Winston Cup date. McGlynn: "We are going to build a track that can handle any type of racing that is available" (NASHVILLE BANNER, 11/7).
