Since I'm from San Antonio Tx where exactly is this located at? I have only been to Houston Raceway Park for the Drag Races and don't know much about that area.

Cleveland is just a click away from HOUSTON
Now with the tollway you can get there in a flash from anywhere

Would make a nice replacement for TWS (Texas World Speedway).
I really hope this thing takes off. Would be great for the sport.

Right from the press release:

* 510 direct and indirect jobs created;
* $714 million in salaries;

That equates to an annual salary of $1.4 million for each of those jobs created. Where do I apply????

I hope Marcus can make this happen because it sure would be nice to have another track, especially one of this quality.

This track is going to be amazing. There are some big things up and comming and this track will become a reality sooner than later. It is designed for motorcycles as the the owners are riders.
