National Western moving

National Western is outgrowing its aging, 95-acre complex in North Denver, the location of the annual National Western Stock Show (currently underway Jan. 12-27th). As such, the organization is in talks with International Speedway Corp. to build a 1,000-acre complex near Denver International Airport. The new complex would host the stock show in the winter months, and be open for Nascar Events and possibly Olympic sports training in the summer months. The project would cost a projected $600 million to $800 million, and would “require significant public funding.”

Mirr Ranch Group is the official sponsor of the Coors Western Art Exhibit and Sale, and all proceeds benefit the National Western Scholarship Trust.

However, the old proposal would have been driven by public funding whereas the new proposal will be largely privately funded. […]
