“With the construction of a new bridge crossing the Missouri River, Mills County is about to have a new transportation corridor that will connect two major highway systems through a realignment of Highway 34. This will create an excellent opportunity for new development along the I-29 and Highway 34 corridors and immediate area. This economic development potential has spurred the County to promote and yet manage the development that will occur. In order to achieve this, Mills County hired JEO Consulting Group, Inc., to help facilitate and develop a Corridor Master plan for the study area including both of these corridors as part of the master planning process, Mills County also created a zoning overlay district that would tailor development specifically for the identified area. Such an overlay district would ensure quality development at the Gateway of Mills Couny”-JEO Consulting 2011. For the details of this Master Plan, click on the documents tab on this page.

Track and Facilities Description from MAM website:

Mid America Motorplex was created to be a national-level recreational driving facility designed to handle race cars, streetcars, motorcycles, karts, and police cars. Many tracks have the traditional layout with concrete walls, short run offs, minimal facilities, and low visibility for spectators. It seems that most tracks are packed full of concrete walls that only reward damage with the high possibility of personal loss. At these other tracks, nearly every weekend an unlucky driver would hit a wall. The safety truck would pull the car off course, and then the flocks of people gathered around to take pictures and everyone just hoped that they would be luckier, smarter or safer. At MAM, we believe that tracks should be places to come together as a family and should have some modern day features as well. MAM has air-conditioned bathrooms that are clean, private climate controlled showers, a first aid station, and seating for 7000 guests that can view every turn and straight on the 217 acres of MAM. Great food is always available as well as air, water, and a self-serve race fuel station. Onsite management is another key factor in making the facility a great success. MAM offers members a country club style-driving club for cars, bikes, and karts, classroom instruction and qualified instructors, barrier free driving and only minutes from the metro Omaha area. The drag community was not forgotten and a sanctioned NHRA strip was built. The main difference is the separation of the facilities. Rolling Thunder Drag Strip operates simultaneously to the road course weekly. MAM is a motor sports complex that was designed to cater to all road racers, drag racers, and kart racers.

Mid America Motorplex started as a simple sketch when world-renowned track designer Alan Wilson was asked to take on the project. Mr. Wilson put the track on the map with utmost safety in mind. He created a driver friendly, yet challenging course that would take many laps to master. The finished product is a 2.23 mile long racing circuit, a 40 foot wide polymer surface, with 15 turns of increasing radius, decreasing radius, long straights, ample passing zones, challenging switchbacks, and a flat out kink

MAM owner Mark Tincher had been farming the ground that the MAM track was sketched upon. The business plan was read over, and the project began. Non-professional racing is the fastest growing sport in the nation. It is with this in mind that MAM’s design was taken from paper to asphalt. The MAM calendar was almost full before any earth had been moved. The Tincher Auto Mall is just 8 minutes away and services Ford, Chevy, and Dodge products, which is a service not found at any track in the United States.

ROAD COURSE – Completed April 2002. Mid-America’s road course is a 2.23-mile gem. Designed by world-renowned designer Alan Wilson, the track has already become a much sought after venue for many of the nation’s top motor sports organizations. The track surface is second to none with an incredibly tire-friendly compound that will greatly reduce tire wear, and will promote safer adhesion for all types of vehicles.

ROAD COURSE – Alternative configuration, named “D-Curve”, completed September 2005. MAM’s short track configuration is 1.4-miles of fun. The kart community has its own race track! MAM karters have been asking, and they have been listened to! D-Curve is a 40 foot wide flat-loop interior road that bisects the longest (2222’) straight. This gives karters the advantage of less wear and tear on their equipment. The car and bike racers are also able to enjoy a variety in their configuration choices

DRAG STRIP – Completed April 2003. The Rolling Thunder Drag Strip at MAM is a 1/8-mile NHRA Drag Racing Facility to cater to both car and bike drag racers. This style of drag racing is gaining popularity every year, drawing a wide variety of enthusiasts of all ages and is a lot easier on vehicles than an “old school” ¼-mile facility. Teamed up with the NHRA, MAM has ET Bracket Racing in addition to the Street Legal, Jr. Dragster, and High School Programs. Rolling Thunder is also the venue of choice for Top Fuel Harley Drags, and locally and nationally sponsored Shootout Events.
