          NASCAR has expanded its NASCAR SpeedPark go-cart
     concept to include stand-alone projects exclusively with
     Myrtle Beach, SC-based Burroughs & Chapin Co.  The NASCAR
     SpeedParks were initially designed to be a part of St.
     Andrews' All-American SportsPark concept, which will debut
     in Las Vegas later this year.  But NASCAR VP/Licensing &
     Consumer Products George Pyne said, "The demand for the
     NASCAR SpeedPark concept has led us to developing stand-
     alone projects."  The first SpeedPark will be built in
     Myrtle Beach and feature eight tracks, with plans to develop
     10 more sites over a two-year period (NASCAR).
          DAYS OF THUNDER: A NASCAR Thunder store, "a sort of
     Disney store for racing fans," will open in Phoenix next
     month, according to Glen Creno of the ARIZONA REPUBLIC. 
     There are currently six stores, with four others, including
     the one in Phoenix, to open before the end of the year.  Ten
     more stores "are planned" for '98 (ARIZONA REPUBLIC, 9/18).
