DOVER DOWNS BUYS NASHVILLE SPEEDWAY USA; PLANS FOR NEW TRACK

          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).
