NEW CANEY, MONTGOMERY COUNTY - Construction is set to break ground at the end of March on Speedsportz Racing Park, the motorsports complex at the future Grand Texas Sports & Entertainment District. It is set to open in late 2015.

The facility will be built on nearly 30 acres and will include a European-style rental kart facility and rental track, a performance track and a performance pad, according to a press release.

Plans for the complex have evolved since the preliminary concept was released last summer.

"The residual acreage will be developed for commercial pads along Hwy. 242 and a new unnamed road starting construction in March," said co-owner Alan Rudolph.

Rudolph, a renowned karting driver and racing trainer, most recently was vice president, general manager and chief instructor at Bondurant SuperKart School in Phoenix.

In November 2013, developer Monty Galland and the Grand Texas team unveiled the Grand Texas Sports and Entertainment District master plan.

The entire project is being developed on more than 600 acres along I-69 and SH 242 about 30 miles northeast of downtown Houston.
