DAYTONA HAS THE CAPABILITY TO MAKE A SIX MILLION DOLLAR MAN

          The Daytona 500 "has reclaimed its spot as NASCAR's top
     payday," according to Mittman & Miller of the INDIANAPOLIS
     STAR-NEWS.  Daytona International Speedway President John
     Graham announced yesterday that the '98 Daytona 500 purse
     will top $6M, which exceeds last year's payout of over
     $4.69M.   The Indianapolis 500 "remains No. 1 on the pay
     scale among all motorsports events in the world" with a
     purse of $8.612M (INDIANAPOLIS STAR-NEWS, 11/20).   For more
