TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ Kansas Speedway says it will add a road course to its infield if it gets the contract to manage the state-owned casino in Wyandotte County.

The speedway made the announcement Monday. Two weeks ago, the speedway said it would seek a second NASCAR Sprint Cup series race if it got the casino, which would be located near the southeast corner of the speedway.

Kansas Entertainment, which includes the speedway, is among four applicants for the management contract.

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.
