"Huge name in the karting industry set for fresh start in Texas"

CONCORD, NC - January 21, 2015 - Changing the motorsports and karting market in 
Texas, SpeedsportZ Racing Park,part of the Grand Texas project, is pleased to announce a new 
face and name to their growing operation.

Stepping up to the plate as a Co-Owner in the facility as well as President and Operations 
Manager, Alan Rudolph is set to make the move to Houston, Texas. 
Wiping the previous slate clean, the multi-time karting champion and
Alan Rudolph takes on ownership role at new Texas 
facility and launches his own driving school long time industry member will have a fresh canvas to build one of 
karting's most sought after world-class facilities and driver 
training programs, and establish the 'Alan Rudolph Racing Academy' 
(ARRA) brand.
 
"I have fallen behind on the SpeedsportZ Racing Park timeline as I 
have been busy solidifying Alan Rudolph in the key role in the 
SpeedsportZ Racing Park," explained Tim Crawford, now Co-Owner of the 
soon to be motorsports playground. "My search for the perfect person 
came to a close recently and we have finally locked down a long term 
agreement. Alan will be a Co-Owner in the facility as well as 
President and Operations Manager. His deep network and friendships in 
the industry are second-to-none."
 
Rudolph will have a fresh 25-acre area on the grounds of the 550 acre 
Grand Texas property, to build the facility that he wanted, planned 
and dreamed of since being a young karter. Uprooting his family ties 
and moving to the Houston, Texas area, the new President will start 
laying the groundwork for what is expected to be, one of the premier 
motorsports facilities in not only the United States, but also the 
world.
 
"I am excited and anxious all at the same time," explained Rudolph. 
"I am leaving The Bondurant School of High Performance Driving which 
has been a big part of my life for nearly 16 years. Bob has been a 
great mentor and given me so many opportunities which I will always 
be grateful for. Now I'm looking forward to a fresh start and getting 
to work on plans for our multi-purpose facility."
 
Crawford added, "The first phase of the project will still include 
the three basic elements that we had before in a dedicated rental 
kart track, as well as a performance track and a performance pad, 
both that will connect with one another. Alan will now put his 
expertly honed and creative handprint on everything. The business 
plan is new. The project is new. It is going to be great."
 
The SpeedsportZ Racing Park will run rental karts on their dedicated 
rental facility to help attract new people to the sport of karting. 
The performance track and performance pad will be the home of racing 
karts and lightweight racecars. The new President will also develop a 
high performance racing school for drivers with the emphasis on 
karting, with general instruction on lightweight racecars also being 
introduced. The goal of the Alan Rudolph Racing Academy programming 
will have a long-term goal of becoming the top karting training 
program in the world.
 
Rudolph added, "I am really excited to get working on this project, 
it's truly my field of dreams and I can't wait to share it with the 
world. There are many exciting things but the two I am most excited 
about is my ARRA brand and my idea of a Karting Hall of Fame. It's 
been a dream of mine to not only have my own track and school but 
also the idea of a Karting Hall of Fame is needed in our sport and 
what a better place than our track."
 
Located only fifteen minutes from the busy George Bush International 
Airport in Houston, Texas, the SpeedsportZ Racing Park will quickly 
become one of the must visits for karters and karting enthusiasts 
alike.
 
Rudolph continued, "I wish I could announce all the relationships 
that we are forming but we have a specific timeline, making sure we 
cross all of our T's and dot all of our I's. We want to leave nothing 
behind and make sure that we have the perfect plans and partners in 
place. Some big industry news is yet to come."
