EVENT & ATTRACTION NOTES
Published March 10, 1998
The Doral-Ryder Open attracted a record 53,000 spectators for Sunday's final day (MIAMI HERALD, 3/9)....In honor of its 50th birthday, NASCAR will hold "NASCAR's Night in Hollywood -- A Golden Celebration," a black tie affair May 1 to honor the league's founders and heroes. ESPN will air the event the following night, May 2, as a two-hour, prime-time special (NASCAR)....In Dallas, Steve Davis reported that there are only 2.5 million tickets available to the World Cup, "about 1 million fewer than at USA '94." Each country gets 8% of the stadium's capacity, which leaves the U.S. delegation about 2,500-3,000 tickets. Davis added that "even the media have felt the bite of limited tickets." The French Organizing committee gave U.S. Soccer about 50 media credentials to distribute (DALLAS MORNING NEWS, 3/8).
