NYC NASCAR By 2009? Racetrack To Be Built On Staten Island DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) NASCAR could be coming to New York City. International Speedway Corporation has paid $100 million for more than 450 acres of dormant land on Staten Island and has its sights on completing a racetrack there as early as 2009. International Speedway owns or operates eleven of the stock car circuit's major tracks. Speedway plans to buy an additional 236 acres next year. In all, it wants to acquire 660 acres, which it said would be the largest undeveloped block of land within New York City. The company must first do a feasibility study. And New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg previously has voiced doubts about traffic jams that might be generated by the track.
