That's not entirely correct, other articles have better information. If Bernie can't sign new contracts with the track developers (now that the contracts with Tavo are cancelled) by Dec 7, then it may be in jeopardy. This is all using the media to hype it up and create interest....Bernie will take his $50M ($25M Austin, $25M New Jersey) and the F1 investors will be happy. Don't worry. This is part of the FIA/F1 media showmanship that dances around every year.

I don't understand why McCombs doesn't just borrow a little chunk of that Longhorn Network money from UT.

Sweet, I wish I hadn't been keeping up with this and just assumed it was going to happen all along. Extra stress not needed.

At least they got their **** together. I know I can't wait for this and should be grabbing a ticket as soon as possible.

Good plan. Knowing Austin, some hippies will probably find a way to delay track construction because they don't want the f1 cars to pollute their precious air.
