Court rejects Kentucky Speedway against Nascar

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A federal appeals court has rejected
claims by a Kentucky track that NASCAR violates federal antitrust
laws by keeping it off the premier racing circuit.
The decision issued Friday by a three-judge panel from the U.S.
6th Circuit Court of Appeals ends, for now, Kentucky Speedway's
legal efforts at forcing NASCAR to bring a Sprint Cup race to the
northern Kentucky track.
The panel said Kentucky Speedway failed to prove NASCAR and
International Speedway Corp., worked together to with other tracks
to keep the Kentucky track from getting a Sprint Cup race.
Kentucky Speedway sued NASCAR in 2005 after being rejected
multiple times for a top level race. The race track, about halfway
between Louisville and Cincinnati, has drawn huge crowds to some of
its other races.
