Title: ISC Set Sights on Denver Area
Post by: Cheryl on February 15, 2007, 07:48:43 PM
Hmmmmm...hadn't heard about this one before.  I guess this is why ISC bought Pikes Peak and closed it down.  They wanted to make sure their new track was the only game in town.   ::)  If they can't get NY and Seattle, they're going for Denver next.  Ugh...

"NASCAR's sister company, ISC, set sights on Denver area
By DAVID POOLE / The Charlotte Observer
International Speedway announced Tuesday it is exploring a partnership to develop a motorsports facility in Adams County, Colo., near the Denver International Airport.

ISC is looking a land parcels in the cities of Aurora and Commerce City and will work with public entities to explore the feasibility of a track that would seat about 75,000.

ISC, which owns Daytona International Speedway along with several other tracks, recently halted its efforts to build a track on a Staten Island site that would have served New York City, but said it is exploring other options in that area."

I remember that Roger Penske tried to build a track in the same area that ISC is now targeting.
