Roger Penske's California Speedway is on the 1996 CART Indy car schedule and has been approved for a date on a future NASCAR Winston Cup schedule. Now all that's needed is a track. Before work on a facility can even begin, however, the site must be cleared of toxic waste and approved by the California Environmental Protection Agency. Then permits must be granted by the County of San Bernardino. All of which takes time--and money.

Drive down Coke Oven Road and you'll be on the back straightaway of the about-to-be-built California Speedway's two-mile tri-oval. Before construction can start, however, the sign that says "DANGER--Molten Slag Being Carried" must be removed. The front of the tri-oval is harder to define.

From Les Richter's California Speedway headquarters in the Empire Towers, he can look out his eighth-story window and see remnants of the late Ontario Motor Speedway--a few yards of dirt berm along what was the old front straightaway. Richter is the project manager for Roger Penske, who is planning to build a $70-million motor racing facility less than three miles from the Ontario track. The irony is not lost on Walt Czarnecki, president of Penske Speedway Inc.

Les Richter is here this week in his role as senior vice president of NASCAR, officiating over the Daytona 500, but next Tuesday he will be back in Southern California, working toward construction of Roger Penske's California Speedway. The two-mile superspeedway, planned for Indy car and NASCAR Winston Cup racing, will be on the site of the former Kaiser steel mill in San Bernardino County between Fontana on the east and Ontario-Rancho Cucamonga on the west. The mill closed in 1983.

The Western Athletic Conference confirmed Thursday that it will add six members, including two from the Big West, to become a 16-team league by 1996. The newly aligned conference, which will be the largest in the country, will include Nevada Las Vegas and San Jose State from the Big West and three leftover schools from the Southwest Conference--Rice, Southern Methodist and Texas Christian, as well as Tulsa.
