Anyway, that 60 room tower over the Robertsons' old building on Congress has a better chance of happening than an F1 track (and that's saying something).
It may, the State of Texas is providing 25,000,000 a year to host the event in Austin for a ten-year run. If the event happens, we - Texas - are open to providing more dinero.
