MUSICAL CHAIRS: In Las Vegas, Ron Kantowski wrote of Daytona Int'l Speedway's plans to reduce seating capacity, "You would think Daytona would be the last place where seats would be subtracted for stock-car racing." While attendance is "good at NASCAR races, attendance also is down." Sources said that 11 of NASCAR’s 23 tracks "reduced seating capacity" in '12. Kantowski noted that "doesn’t include places such as Las Vegas Motor Speedway," which in '10 widened its bleacher seats by 2 inches, "even after having announced a virtual sellout for its Cup race" (LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL, 6/25).
