January 12, 2021

ATLANTA, Jan. 12, 2021 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has been selected by the National Hot Rod Association to market for sale the Atlanta Dragway, a 318-acre racetrack in Commerce, Georgia. The site’s desirable location and flat topography presents a unique redevelopment opportunity for a variety of uses in the Interstate 85 North corridor.

The asset currently operates as a fully functional racetrack and consists of a VIP tower with a timing deck, press center and corporate suites; four concessions buildings; three permanent restroom facilities; a management office; parking lot; and excess grass lots. Site dynamics include a rare, flat topography, all major utilities on-site, and multiple access points to major regional thoroughfares, including Hwy 441 and Interstate 85. Proximity to I-85N provides direct access to the Atlanta, Athens and Greenville metro areas.

The city of Commerce is experiencing exploding growth alongside the construction of the $2.6-billion SK Innovations manufacturing facility, one of the largest economic developments in Georgia’s history. The Banks Crossing intersection where the Atlanta Dragway is located has been designated by Banks County as a targeted industrial, commercial and residential development corridor.

The JLL Capital Markets team representing the seller is being led by Jamie Smithson and Conor Welton.
