NASCAR driver Rusty Wallace says a track he designed will be constructed in Newton and an official announcement will be made April 26th. Wallace says all the funding is in place, “so it’s gonna be a reality.” The 7/8ths mile track will have seating for 25-thousand fans. He says he was in Newton last week checking the contours in the turns and he says “this thing is real, it’s gonna happen, and we have a lot of work to do yet.” Wallace says he would eventually like to see the track host some NASCAR events but no such ageement is in place. He says they haven’t had any conversations with NASCAR yet. He says they’re working on building it now, and then see how it works out.The track is expected to open in 2006.
