Is hockey on the horizon for Texas Motor Speedway president Eddie Gossage?
Gossage says no. But the man generally regarded as one of the top promoters in racing has been approached by people involved with the NHL about joining the league and eventually replacing commissioner Gary Bettman, sources confirmed Wednesday. Bettman's contract expires after the 2007-08 season.
Gossage attended the NHL All-Star Game in Dallas last week, but insists the subject wasn't addressed.
