NOLA Motorsports Park Celebrates Grand Opening

Start your engines and head over to NOLA Motorsports Park, Sunday, June 10, for the grand opening of the highly anticipated motorsports paradise.

Beginning at 10 a.m., the public is invited to explore all that the 750-acre entertainment facility has to offer. A ribbon ceremony will mark the occasion, followed by a parade lap around the 2.75 mile North Track, free to any car or bike. In addition, guests can enjoy hot laps with a professionally-trained driver, high-adrenaline racing with world-class karting, and lessons on how to properly control a skid car. The event will also feature appearances by Hornets mascot and dancers, Hugo and the Honeybees, and cuisine by New Orleans-native Chef Scott Boswell.

“The public has been so supportive of us throughout the building process,” said General Manager Mitch Wright. “This is our opportunity to thank them for their support and show them what we have to offer.”

NOLA Motorsports Park offers an array of activities, including:

  • A 23-acre world-class kart facility where guests can experience high-speed and high-performance karts;
  • A  2.75-mile motorcycle and car track for the public to experience with a      professional driver or in their personal cars;
  • Garages for commercial and private use;
  • A full-service speed shop; and
  • Cuisine at the Kart Café and Stanley at the Track by Chef Scott Boswell.

“This is an exciting day for NOLA Motorsports Park,” said Owner Laney Chouest. “Being that this is the only park of its kind in Louisiana, we are hopeful we will help attract visitors from across the country. From racing enthusiasts to families, we’ll offer high-adrenaline fun at a place as unique as the city it calls home.”

NOLA Motorsports Park is the largest privately funded development in the state. The park has already attracted events and people to the area, creating a strong economic boost for Jefferson Parish. Its close proximity to New Orleans mixed with a unique atmosphere has put NOLA Motorsports on the map.

“This is an exciting day for the Jefferson Parish business community,” says Lucien Gunter, the executive director of the Jefferson Parish Economic Development Commission. “NOLA Motorsports is an important asset to Jefferson Parish. We look forward to the economic support it will bring to this region.”
