High Point University President Nido Qubein blasted the city after it delayed an infrastructure project near campus because construction bids came in so high. He said HPU will likely steer campus visitors away from a part of Montlieu Avenue because the road needs major improvements. “Visitors to the university are shocked that the city doesn’t care about the university’s main road to Main Street,” he said. High Point City Manager Logan Ford said he’s working on a solution to the problem.
Earlier this year, Trackhouse Racing, an LLC whose mailing address is the same as Hendrick Automotive Group in Charlotte, agreed to acquire Chip Ganassi Racing’s NASCAR operation in Concord for $10.2 million. Under the new building ownership, it will still operate the race shop starting after the 2021 season.
