FACILITY NOTES

          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).
