{safe_alt_text}The Morrow County Court has paved the way for the construction of a $330 million NASCAR-caliber speedway west of Boardman, provided residents approve an 8% excise tax on ticket sales in the May 23 election. If approved, most of the tax revenue would go to development group Oregon International Speedway to offset the cost of infrastructure improvements to support the speedway. If completed as planned, the I-84-adjacent speedway would sport an 81,500-seat grandstand designed to attract NASCAR enthusiasts from points east and west. County economic development officials say the speedway would attract visitors to the area who are likely to stay for several days at a time.
