Track is back.
The USA Track and Field Championships are coming to Sacramento this summer thanks to some big improvements at Sac State.
The events will be held in June at Hornet Stadium, the same site that hosted the US Olympic Trials in 2000 and 2004, except this time, things will be different thanks to a one million dollar resurfacing project,
"The Convention and Visitors' Bureau has made a significant investment"
That's according to President Steve Hammond who says they're footing most of the bill.
It was an effort to draw in the event and it worked. He appeared alongside Mayor Johnson at the official announcement, who turned his familar "bigger than basketball" phrase into "bigger than track," and added,
"You're gonna have 10,000 hotel rooms."
The event will also mean national TV coverage.
