EVENT & ATTRACTION NOTES
The Doral-Ryder Open attracted a record 53,000
spectators for Sunday's final day (MIAMI HERALD, 3/9)....In
honor of its 50th birthday, NASCAR will hold "NASCAR's Night
in Hollywood -- A Golden Celebration," a black tie affair
May 1 to honor the league's founders and heroes. ESPN will
air the event the following night, May 2, as a two-hour,
prime-time special (NASCAR)....In Dallas, Steve Davis
reported that there are only 2.5 million tickets available
to the World Cup, "about 1 million fewer than at USA '94."
Each country gets 8% of the stadium's capacity, which leaves
the U.S. delegation about 2,500-3,000 tickets. Davis added
that "even the media have felt the bite of limited tickets."
The French Organizing committee gave U.S. Soccer about 50
media credentials to distribute (DALLAS MORNING NEWS, 3/8).
