With the Raleigh arena project $20M over budget, Laurie Willis of the NEWS & OBSERVER reported that the Hurricanes "have proposed giving more money for the arena, but have not divulged how much they are offering" (Raleigh NEWS & OBSERVER, 6/6)....In Dallas, Holly Cain reports that Bruton Smith's $3M worth of renovations at his Texas Motor Speedway may have "put" the track "back in contention for a highly coveted" second Winston Cup race in '99 (DALLAS MORNING NEWS, 6/8). But in Charlotte, Jim Utter wrote that the Winston Cup circuit next year is "likely to include" a 34th race at the Homestead Motorsports complex in FL, while another race may be added for the Kansas City, KS, facility in 2000 (CHARLOTTE OBSERVER, 6/7).
