Lots of hype have been circulating about the track being built in Austin, Texas for upcoming 2012 F1 racing. Ever since hearing about the news I always wondered when an announcement would be made about MotoGP joining in on the action.

MotoGP.com reports a 10 year deal was signed for the new Circuit of the Americas™ track starting 2013. Construction of the new facility is slated for mid 2012, just in time to host the first F1 US Grand Prix™ and will boast 3.4 miles with 20 turns and 133 feet of elevation change. Sounds awesome!
