Austin's Circuit of the Americas race track has motorsports fans (and local business owners) dreaming big. The folks behind the circuit have put together a promotional video highlighting the many potential positives that CotA will bring to Austin, including new construction jobs and lots of race fans with cash to spend.

Not just a venue for Formula One and MotoGP racing, this Texas track will be used for business functions, full-size concerts and even a trauma training facility for area medical students. 'Course, if you don't really care about corporate retreats or a Kings of Leon concert, the F1 cars are scheduled to hit this track for the 2012 U.S. Grand Prix.
