On motor sports and economic development in Virginia

This AP report notes in connection with the new motorsports economic development initiative that Southwest Virginia and other rural parts of the Commonwealth have a history with auto racing. Apparently, once there were tracks at Haysi, St. Paul, and Breaks.

About 30 some years ago, I went to the race track at Coeburn, when my aunt Lois was "Miss Lonesome Pine" and road in the pace car. It's still business, so far as I know.
