Tucumcari, NM - A new deadline is giving some people in Tucumcari renewed hope of building a race track casino.
A license for the "Racino" was given to Raton and not Tucumcari back in 2008.
But delays in construction have caused the New Mexico Gaming Control Board to set a May first deadline for Raton's casino portion to be up and running.
Officials in Tucumcari say they plan to re-apply for the license immediately if Raton loses theirs in five days.
