Austin is ready for the Thunder as NASCAR comes to town May 22-23

May 15, 2021 7:05 pm

Austin TX is busy preparing for NASCAR’s inaugural EchoPark Texas Grand Prix

this May. Traditionally held at the Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth, this year Speedway Motorsports has chosen Austin’s Circuit of the Americas (COTA) for the event and Austin can’t wait!  If history is any indicator, this will be a multi-million dollar economic boom for Central Texas as fans travel to the area to experience the thrill of thunder after a year of cancellations and limited audiences.

For some other lucky fans with homes in Austin TX, this exciting race is practically taking place in their backyard.  For example, Austin home builder, Buffington Homes, has built some of the Austin area’s most desirable and best designed communities like Whisper Valley and ShadowGlen, just 15-20 miles along TX-130, from the COTA raceway in the Manor, TX suburb.

Whisper Valley is a thoughtfully designed, eco-friendly, 2000 acre master planned community located 15 miles from the COTA raceway.  The community has been intentionally developed to have a minimal carbon footprint employing energy efficient, smart home technology in all home building plans and featuring 600 acres of green space. It is also located within easy commuting distance of some of the region’s biggest employers like 3M, Dell and soon, Tesla.  Choose from a selection of floor plans thoughtfully designed for modern living and constructed using the highest quality materials and techniques.   Phase 2 building sites are almost sold out and phases 3 and 4 will be released together very soon so don’t miss out, join Buffington’s VIP List for the latest updates and your opportunity to live in this dynamic new neighbourhood.

Alternatively, ShadowGlen, Buffington’s lush golf course community, is down the road, 20 miles from the raceway and just east of Manor’s high tech hub. Here home buyers have the enviable choice of spacious, meticulously appointed homes situated amidst the rolling hills of the 18 hole ShadowGlen golf course. If this bucolic lifestyle appeals to you, join the ShadowGlen VIP List for more information on Summer 2021 new lot releases and showcase homes.

Regardless of where you call home, NASCAR’s event organizers want you in the stands! Tickets have been priced to entice families; a 3 day ticket starts at $99 and kids under 12, with an adult, are free for the first two days and pay only $10 for the Sunday race.

–Bring on the thunder, NASCAR – Austin is ready! —

Be sure to stop by our Whisper Valley and Shadow Glen Communities and meet with a Buffington Homes community sales manager to begin exploring new home options best suited to your lifestyle.  We are here to help you with one of the most important decisions of your life!
