Alabama Motorsports Park is a mixed-use, master-planned development designed around a potential 70,000-seat 7/10-mile stock car/open-wheel oval, a 3.0-mile road course, a karting track and other major entertainment venues, located on 2811 acres +/- just in Mobile County, AL.

Portions of the project are located within the incorporated limits of the cities of Prichard and Saraland. The balance is currently located in Mobile County.

The project’s master plan includes hospitality, retail, office, RV, industrial and residential elements that surround entertainment and motorsports venues.

At one point in the project planning period, a drag strip and dirt track were also envisioned. The drag strip was removed due to noise issues and the dirt track was removed due to dust issues.

The projected operational date is for certain project elements is 2012. GCE plans to seek races from the leading domestic sanctioning bodies including NASCAR, IRL, IMSA and Grand-Am. The project will seek race dates in 2012-2013 in various high-level series including, but not limited to, the NASCAR Nationwide Series, the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series, the Indy Racing League, the American Le Mans Series and the Rolex Sports Car Series.

The project is located in the fastest growing section of Mobile County along miles of road frontage and expressway access at the gateway to the sunny South and Midwest. It rests on a new four-lane connector between I-65 and I-10, approximately 15 minutes by interstate from downtown Mobile.
