RACING TO THE FINISH: In Daytona Beach, Godwin Kelly reports the primary focus of Daytona Int'l Speedway's $400M Daytona Rising construction project has "shifted from creating the foundation to assembling the steel structure." DIS President Joie Chitwood III said, "In the last two weeks, you can now see the steel structure that goes to the top of the new grandstand."

ANGELS AMONG US: In California, Art Marroquin reports a city appraisal of Angel Stadium "will be completed by January." But Anaheim City Manager Marcie Edwards said that the results of the appraisal "will not be immediately made public because that would undercut the city’s ability to negotiate a new stadium lease." Edwards said that the appraisal "likely would be released just before the City Council votes on the lease" (ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER, 11/7).
TENNIS TASTES: In California, Leighton Ginn reports the Kaiser Restaurant Group's Chop House "will join Nobu on the concourse of the new Stadium 2" at Indian Wells Tennis Garden.
