Jan. 8 (Bloomberg) -- Speedway Motorsports Inc., an owner and operator of NASCAR racetracks, is in talks with lenders for as much as $350 million of loans to replace debt.

The financing would include a $250 million term loan and $100 million revolving credit line maturing in five years, the Concord, North Carolina-based company said today in a regulatory filing.

Standard & Poor’s ranked the proposed credit BBB-, the lowest investment grade, while keeping Speedway’s corporate rating at BB with a stable outlook.

The pact with lenders would have a so-called accordion feature allowing the company to borrow an additional $100 million, according to the filing.

The company, whose racetracks include the Kentucky Speedway, is also offering $100 million of 6.75 percent notes, due in 2019, to pay down $95 million of outstanding credit. The new loans it is seeking would follow the note sale, the company said in the filing.
