Does anyone still know if he still wants to build the track. If this bill passes then it will be much easier to build a track in Arkansas.

Nothing happened. The economy tanked and so did the option on the land from what I understand. I think everyone on here would love a big track somewhere here in Arkansas but if you combined auto and motocycle enthusiasts together we just don't have enough big numbers to make a track work as a normal business. We'd need an enthusiast like a Walton or a Stephens to self fund the investment of building a course. I could be wrong and maybe someday someone might get a bank to under-write it but it would have to be one heck of a business plan.

Until then I'll keep buying a lottery ticket from time to time and dreaming big of our own course close by.

5 or 6 years ago Mark Martin was rumored going in with investors and building a NASCAR track but it was either a rumor or just fell thru. Wouldn't a road course infield track have been nice. :drool

On facebook, it says everything is a go and they are working on it. You can look at google maps and see that they are working on it.
