Alabama site picked for Earnhardt track
$600 million race track, entertainment complex set for north of Mobile

MOBILE, Ala. - A $600 million Dale Earnhardt race track and entertainment complex will be built on 2,500 acres just north of Mobile, the track's investors announced Friday.

It could take about two years to build the four-track motorsports park off Alabama 158, near Interstate 65, with a full season of activity expected in 2010, track spokesman Bill Futterer said. The site faces the University of Mobile campus.

A 5,000-space RV park, a theme park and a 7,000-seat arena also are planned, along with hotels, retail, restaurants and music theaters. The site would benefit from its proximity to the east-west Interstate 10 on Mobile's southern edge.

Investors in the track include NASCAR Nextel Cup driver Dale Earnhardt Jr.; his brother, Kerry Earnhardt, a driver in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series; and sister Kelley Earnhardt Elledge.

Although I'm not a NASCAR fan I would be interested in the RV park and Theme Park. I'm about 50 miles away.
Thanks for the post.
