They are planning a kart track at the facility
The area for the kart track is here

This is going to be great for our sport. Lots of promotion for karting. It sounds like it is going to be a concession type track. Hopefully they will also have plenty of big kart race events too.

The following link is to the Autoweek website and it highlights many concerns of State and local government offices. In a nut shell; access to the proposed track area is limited and would require millions to be invested into infrastructure above and beyond the track facility.

If you match their picture up on google this appears to be the location.
So with that in mind, it's not much different than a lot of other tracks across the country. If I remember right 114 was a two lane road when TMS opened up, and there was really no other access to the north and small outlet to the west.
I think the thing that could hinder them most would be the floodplain problem. There appears to be the potential for a lot of water to roll through that property when the storms hit.
