New Orleans Gets a Motor Sports Race Track

As most people know, New Orleans has become a major sports center because of its hosting of numerous Super Bowls, Final Fours, College Bowls, Sailing Regattas, Golf Tournaments, etc, etc. Well now we have our own race track, NOLA Motorsports Park. At the NOLA Sportspark you can race cars, karts, or motorcycles on different courses averaging about 2.5 miles with 14-16 turns. And, there are more courses on the way. Can you believe a user friendly race track just a short 20 minute drive from the historic French Quarter? And just like the Crescent City, this track is not stuffy but much more laid back and friendly just like the City it calls home. This fun venue lays claim to being the only track in America in such close proximity to such a wonderful place as New Orleans.
