Hard Rock Casino coming to Speedway (Wyandotte County)
September 19, 2008
TOPEKA, KS - The Kansas Lottery Gaming Facility Review Board voted 4-3 in favor
of the Kansas Speedway’s proposal to build a Hard Rock Casino overlooking a turn
on the track. The contractor is Kansas Entertainment, which is a partnership
between the Speedway and the Cordish Company of Baltimore.
"I think the opportunity to build a casino and turn to Kansas Speedway is a
once-in-a-lifetime opportunity," said Matt All, chairman of the review board. "I
think it would be an iconic symbol in Kansas."
The Speedway has promised to build a road course in its infield and seek a
second NASCAR Sprint Cup series race if it won the casino contract. It will host
the Camping World RV rally starting in 2010.
The contractor must now pass a background check before the project can proceed.
