>> the baltimore grand prix drew a crowd and was seen on television across the country. it generated $47 million over labor day weekend. on the surface, that sounds like success, particularly for an inaugural event. in reality, baltimore racing development, is mired in debt and controversy, particularly concerning the decision to bring the event back next year. the initial goal of bringing the race to baltimore was to improve the national and international image of a city frequently shown as drug and crime infested to the charm city that also exists. the shots of baltimore's groun -- crown jewels surrounding the inner harbor were impressive. despite the attendance, the event ended in great financial distress. the very site that showcased
baltimore exceeded initial budget concessions. now leaders want to discuss how to cover the costs. in these tough times, subsidizing a car race may not be high on the list. on the other hand, the groundwork has been laid, and we have seen the positive results. what do you think? should the city break its five-year contract and walk away? or should the city make a further investment and bring the race back? go to www.wbaltv.com and click on "hot topics "and let us know what you think.
