Great news for sports & entertainment in North Memphis. Along with Justin Timberlake's new breath-taking Miramichi golf course, Memphis Motorsports Park is a great asset for the north side and I'm glad Dover Motorsports won't be around anymore to run it into the ground.

Motorsports Park Set for Auction Block

Memphis Motorsports Park will soon have a new owner after being out of commission for the past year. Situated on 375 acres in unincorporated Shelby County south of Millington, Memphis Motorsports Park is near the Millington Regional Jetport. The multi-track complex includes a 0.75-mile asphalt oval, a 0.25-mile championship drag strip and a 1.77-mile road course. The park opened in 1987, and is the former site of more than 150 annual events including NASCAR Nationwide Series and Camping World Truck Series races, as well as a number of NHRA races. Consistently ranked as one of “Tennessee’s Top 10 Attractions,” Memphis Motorsports Park attracted more than 500,000 guests annually. In addition, the site is eligible for consideration as a test track by NASCAR teams, an amateur track, driving school or racing simulation attraction.

A great move with the Pyramid/Pinch redevelopment on the horizon. Memphis has a solid convention market with the Cook Convention Center being the metro's primary facility. The main hall has aged well with a previous $100 million renovation that included the construction of the beautiful Cannon Center concert hall. Also, the anchor hotel, Dowtown Memphis Marriott had a $55 million expansion tower added as well as the Crowne Plaza returning to an adjacent building, also renovating -all of this within the past decade. Now the TDZ has been expanded to include the huge Bass Pro Shop/City Of Memphis redevelopment of the Great American Pyramid and the city is looking to increase its' market share of convention business.

Financing for stalled Highland Row project in Memphis imminent, developers say
By Tom Bailey Jr.
Memphis Commercial Appeal


The recession-delayed Highland Row mixed-use development may finally have some traction. Developer Poag & McEwen is “really optimistic” it will close on a construction loan by Dec. 31, chief operating officer and general counsel Bob Rogers said today. The lifestyle center developers have expressed optimism throughout the recession that has frozen financing for new construction around the nation. But this time the upbeat words for their $70 million project near the University of Memphis have consequence.

New station, new technology ease Memphis auto-inspection ordeal
By Amos Maki
Memphis Commercial Appeal


The $6 million station, the city's fourth, is at 2355 Appling City Cove near Appling Road north of Interstate 40. It features six lanes -- two of which accommodate large commercial and recreational vehicles. In response to complaints over the spring and summer about long wait times for inspections, city officials said the three existing stations didn't provide enough lanes to serve the 416,000 cars inspected annually.
