NASCAR soming to Snohomish County, WA? What once seemed far-fetched is becoming closer & closer to reality. Man what this would mean for the local economy. Me, being someone who likes growth, thinks this is a wonderful thing!

A Seattle firm is preparing a study on the larger economic impact that a new NASCAR track would have specifically for the Puget Sound region. But reports on other areas with large race tracks look promising.

In Arizona, the ISC-owned Phoenix International Raceway injected more than $270 million overall into the state's economy in 1999, according to an Arizona State University study. That included more than $124 million in spending by out-of-state visitors.
