Adel - Plans are underway for a South Georgia race track. Cook County commissioners approved 3 to 1 Monday night the construction of the track near Highway 41 in Cecil.

The developer originally planned the track for southern Lowndes County, but withdrew his request after facing heated opposition from Lake Park residents.

Dozens of Cook County people turned out to protest the track Monday night, and say the commissioners didn't have enough information to make the decision.

"We are disappointed with the commissioners' decision but we're not giving up on this and will pursue legal action if we need to," said Robin Judge.

Economic studies show that the track could bring in an estimated 37 million dollars to the area each year.
