Ground has already been broken for El Paso's very own road racing course.

Here's the entire statement from the El Paso Motorplex facebook page:

Race fans and racers! As you have all seen in the El Paso Times article by now, we are building a road racing course at the Motorplex. Groundbreaking has already taken place and we are moving forward wth construction. The course will have several layouts available, from the full length 2.1 mile course to the .7 mile go cart course , which will feature lighting for night go cart racing. Some of the features of the track are a full concession stand and restrooms. Spectator seating, a 3 story control tower that will include a VIP seating and lounge area. The road course will feature LED corner warning lights, 20' tall scoreboard and a state of the art transponder timing system. The track will have emergency medical and fire crews on standby for racer and spectator safety. For the racers the track will have 25 covered maintenance bays with electrical and air service provided in each bay. Private and corporate memberships will be available for purchase.

The drawing of the track looks great. I can't wait to see...and race...the real thing!
