Americus Motorsports Complex (AMC) and the Star Racing team have begun advertising the future services of the yet-to-be-built facility.
Signs outside the 449-acre site in Americus, Ga., advertise the entrance of the future drag strip, technology park, road course and training facility. Star Racing owners George and Jackie Bryce announced plans for the facility in February, and the couple finalized the purchase agreement for the site in mid-summer.
Local company Harrell & Jackson Inc. has been hired as the engineering firm, and Paxton Waters Architecture, which was involved in the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, California Speedway, Iowa Speedway, Prairie Hills Motorsports Club and Bluegrass Motorsports Club, has been hired to design the complex. A local farmer has been brought on to harrow the front section of the land, and the Sumter County Board of Commissioners has been hired to install temporary culverts and driveways on the property.
"The AMC won't just be a dragstrip or road course; it'll have many different things to keep it in use as much as possible," Jackie Bryce said. "The new signs on the AMC property look great. We hope they help people visualize everything that'll be included in the complex. We know our local community will play a big part in the success of AMC, and we hope to get everyone onboard before any dirt is moved."
