AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - The top executive at Texas Motor Speedway is frustrated over Formula One's decision to move United States Grand Prix at Austin to the same weekend that his track hosts all three of NASCAR's national series.
Eddie Gossage called the scheduling ''arrogant'' when he talked before Tuesday's celebration of Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s victory in the Daytona 500.
Gossage says Formula One boss Bernie Ecclestone doesn't realize ''there is an 800-pound gorilla when it comes to major American motor sports. The 800-pound gorilla is NASCAR.''
Texas Motor Speedway will host the NASCAR Sprint Cup's AAA Texas 500 on Nov. 2, the same day F1 will hold its only event in the United States this year.
Gossage believes a stronger stance by the management at the Circuit of the Americas would have prevented the scheduling issue.
