    5 cities in race for NASCAR Hall of Fame

    Article in USA Today:
    http://www.usatoday.com/money/econom...ar-cover_x.htm

    Second or Sub Headline from the printed article:
    Jobs, big bucks, lots of tourists, bragging rights at stake

    Competing cities are: Charlotte, NC; Atlanta, GA; Daytona Beach, FL; Kansas City, KS; and Richmond, VA
    Check out the related graphic: http://www.usatoday.com/money/graphi...fame/flash.htm

    Highlight:
    ...the hall of fame is expected to bring prestige and an additional selling point for cities as they seek to attract businesses and convention-goers.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    My pick would be between Charlotte and Daytona.# 1 Charlotte for it’s central location round so many other tracks such as Lowe’s, Darlington, Martinsville, Richmond, Rockingham and Atlanta.
    # 2 Daytona for be the “Super bowl” of NASCAR events.
    Yes, Atlanta for 3rd place, because of population draw.

    KCKS because I’m from Ks! Ha ha. (No history in NASCAR, please not there. May be cause of its central national location as NASCAR expands from the S.E.)
