Kansas State Fair Racetrack Future Questioned

HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) — Kansas State Fair board members are discussing a master plan that would eliminate the century-old racetrack. The Hutchinson News reports that's one suggestion in a master plan presented to the board this week. None of the proposals are close to being approved. The plan would replace the southern curves of the track with a new horse exhibition area and practice arena. Fair Manager Susan Sankey acknowledges that removing the track will be unpopular with some people. But she says it's a business decision designed to modernize the fair and generate revenue. The master plan also includes a permanent stage for entertainment and a new dirt area for demolition derbies and tractor pulls. The next step is for board members to choose priorities for the plan and set a timetable.
