.....Atlanta ups the ante on Charlotte:

"Atlanta Mayor Shirley Franklin just took a top seat on the pit box with Governor Perdue by upping the city's original $5 million commitment to a whopping $77 million in support of the NASCAR Hall of Fame bid.

"...Mayor Franklin saw the long-term impact on the city from an economic development standpoint and decided to make this one of the centerpieces of her newly created economic plan throught the Atlanta Development Authority.

Charlotte, you're on the clock.
