Charles Town Races to build gaming addition
By DAVE McMILLION / Staff Writer
CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - A 10,000 square-foot addition will be constructed at Charles Town Races for a new slot machine gaming area, the track's president said Friday.
The announcement came as the track prepares this morning to open a new slot machine gaming area that has been under construction this year.
If the track gets state and county approval, it could begin building the addition in the spring and have it completed by the end of next year, said track president Jim Buchanan.
The addition will house 500 slot machines currently being kept in an enclosed tent outside the front entrance to the track, Buchanan said. After the machines are moved into the addition, the tent will be taken down.
