There's a lot to consider: Insurance is a major concern, design, pavement, access, buildings, pits, cornerworkers, ambulance service, landscaping - just a whole lot to consider. Ideally you'd have at least $6 or $7M (todays prices) to throw at it (guessing there) and build a facility capable of attracting CCS or other racing organizations. Definitely not something you go cheap on. The more quality and organization you have the more people you attract.
A far as rider support from Florida goes Lakeland is about as good as you can get - you'd get draw from Tampa, Orlando, Daytona and even Miami. If the track is built as good or better than Jennings then the local guys would likely go to Lakeland rather than Jennings. Could have some serious impact to their business.
