Atlanta Motor Speedway is pitching the idea of building a massive resort that would include a casino.
AMS President Ed Clark says the resort would also include a major hotel, convention space, timeshare apartments, a shopping center and several dining options. Clark also mentioned having a theme park, a water park, a karting track, a concert venue, a night club or a golf venue. (Notice the Top Golf in the corner)
Clark presented the idea at a Georgia legislative hearing.
The Georgia House Special Committee on Economic Growth is looking for ways to bring more business and revenue to the state, including through casino gambling, horse racing, and sports betting.
At the three-day hearing that wraps up today, opponents included the Georgia Faith and Freedom Coalition, the Georgia Baptist Mission and anti-gambling advocates.
Any expansion of gambling would have to approved by the voters of Georgia.
