As if NASCAR races aren’t entertaining enough, right? At least I thought so.
But then again, I’m not a huge gambler at all. Matter of fact, I hate casinos and the entire idea of your hard earned money being fed into a machine. I don’t make enough money to afford gambling on the side.
However, everybody has a hobby (it’s no worse than my obsession with shoes and clothes) and Kansas Speedway is providing a means for NASCAR fans to channel that inner high roller right at the track in 2012 with the opening of their brand new casino right at the racetrack.
The newly unveiled Hollywood Casino was opened at a cost of $411,000,000 but created 1,000 jobs for area residents so hopefully this will turn that area’s economy around for the better.
Kasey Kahne and Clint Bowyer were in attendance to help with the official opening of the casino which will hopefully attract more fans to the track which has a 60s and 70s theme.
Kansas is also constructing a road course within the infield after April’s NASCAR Sprint Cup race.
