Atlanta Motor Speedway President and General Manager Ed Clark announced a proposal to build a $1-billion casino resort adjacent to the longtime racetrack in Hampton, GA.
The proposed project would include a hotel, time-share condominiums, meeting space, shops and restaurants, as well as a theme park, concert venue, movie theater and night club. Gambling is not currently legalized in Georgia.
“We want to create something that would bring people of all ages for multi-night stays,” Clark told a legislative committee in August focused on ways to grow Georgia’s economy. “It’s not all about gaming. It’s about entertainment.”
