The owner of Kansas Speedway is reportedly sweetening the pot in its bid to build and run a hotel and casino at the track in Wyandotte County.
The International Speedway Corp. says it will build a road-racing course in the infield of the track, if it wins rights for the casino and hotel.
Speedway officials said such a course would significantly increase use of the Wyandotte County track boost tourism in the area.
The course would be suitable for racing by the Grand American Rolex Sports Car Series, which hosts the Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona, the most prestigious sports-car race in America.
The state casino review board will decide Sept. 18 and 19 who gets the contracts for Wyandotte and Ford counties.
On Friday, it picked Harrah's Entertainment Inc. for the Sumner County casino and Penn National Gaming Inc. for Cherokee County.
