The Woodlands Review

The Woodlands opened in 1989 but soon began losing business to Missouri riverboats. Doping and other controversies, including accusations of taking illegal bets from out of state, eventually led to the track going bankrupt and closing in 1996. It reopened 2 years later, still mired in controversy due to allegations employees had stolen $200,000.

The track twice tried to get permission to run slots, and failed both times. The course closed most recently in 2008.

Finally a bill allowing slots passed the Kansas Senate in May 2015. Two months later, former Las Vegas magnate, Phil Ruffin who owns two other defunct tracks in the state purchased the Woodlands.

Penn National Gaming and Hollywood Casino at Kansas Speedway have voiced opposition to Ruffin's plans to ad up to 2,800 slot machines at the track.
