FACILITY NOTES

          Penske Motorsports said Wednesday that the NC Business
     Court in Charlotte ruled in its favor and dismissed a
     lawsuit by Speedway Motorsports Chair Bruton Smith.  Smith
     filed the suit against Penske, NC Motor Speedway (NCMS) and
     the directors of the Rockingham, NC, track, challenging the
     proposed merger of Penske and NCMS (Mult., 11/6)....With the
     MA House close to approving a convention center bill for
     Boston, Mayor Thomas Menino said, "Now that the convention
     center is on the one-inch line, I hope in the very near
     future we will be able to work with the Red Sox on their
     commitment to Boston" (BOSTON GLOBE, 11/7)....The 81 suites
     at the new Tiger Stadium will cost between $90,000-125,000
     per year to lease, "a deal compared with prices at some
     other new baseball parks."  Tigers VP/Business Ops David
     Glazier: "We tried to be realistic.  This is the only market
     in the country where all four teams have their own buildings
     (and suites)" (DETROIT NEWS, 11/5).
