Officials representing Alabama Motorsports Park released an updated site plan Friday for the 2,200-acre motorsports and entertainment complex. The track, billed as a Dale Earnhardt Jr. Speedway, is a property of Gulf Coast Entertainment, LLC.
The updated plan reflects changes to land use on the north and west sides of the property in Mobile County, Alabama.
“We made the site plan changes as part of the ongoing NEPA process in which we are working in close cooperation with the Army Corps of Engineers and other federal agencies,” said Mike Dow, former Mobile mayor and managing member of Gulf Coast Entertainment.
The focal point of the plan is a 7/10ths-mile D-shaped asphalt speedway. The property will also include a 3-mile road course and karting track. The road course includes a straightaway that runs through the “Race City” retail area, providing a traditional road course and street circuit combination.
The complex is expected to be fully operational in 2010.
