A new NASCAR sanctioned raceway is planned at Interstate 5 and Enos Lane (Highway 43), on 80 acres owned by the Destefani Family.
The project is a joint venture between the Destefani Family and the Collins Family.
The planned layout of the track is a high-banked half-mile paved tri-oval, with a smaller flat oval within the half-mile, and a 1/8-mile drag strip adjacent to the oval.
The track will have a full service Pit Lane suitable for live pit stops.
The Competitor Pit Area will be located in the infield.
The track is designed with a vehicle and pedestrian Access Tunnel.
Twelve Corporate Suites are planned in the initial phase of construction.
The plans are to host NASCAR sanctioned races, plus community events, concerts, and other forms of motorsports competition.
The official name of the new track will be announced at a later date, today the new track is referred to as "Kern County's New Home to NASCAR". Corporate naming rights are being sought.
