Plans for Kan. Speedway Casino to Be Revised

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ A partnership involving Kansas Speedway wants to revise its plans for a state-owned casino in Kansas City, Kan.

The partnership, Kansas Entertainment, announced Friday it is withdrawing its pending application to build and manage the casino. Its proposed gambling-and-hotel complex would overlook the NASCAR track.

Kansas Entertainment, which also involves The Cordish Co., of Baltimore, says it remains committed to building the complex. But it says the economy forced it to withdraw its application so it can revise its plans.

In September, Kansas Entertainment won a contract with the
Kansas Lottery.

The announcement came the same day the Kansas Racing and Gaming Commission was expected to give its final regulatory approval.
