Cotton said he has received interest from many local go-cart enthusiasts about running at the track.
However, some residents apparently are skeptical about the possibility of a weekend attraction that could draw people to the city with a population of less than a thousand.
Burgin City Councilwoman Dawn Sexton said she had been approached by several people who are concerned about the problems that may accompany the track's arrival.
"Burgin is such a small town and it is quiet by 9:30 every night," Sexton said. "I think many people live in Burgin because of its size. They want order and don't really care a lot for traffic, chaos and noise."
Sexton inquired about the possibility of adopting a noise ordinance at Tuesday's city council meeting.
Police Chief Jim Caldwell said the city does not have a specific noise law, so he adheres to the Kentucky statute that generally says noise must remain at a reasonable level at night.
An ordinance specifying acceptable decibel levels could be drafted by the next regular city council meeting in April.
Cotton said that he does not expect noise to be a big issue and he has already experimented with engines to be sure.
"We ran motorcycles and four wheelers all day and drove around town to see if we could hear anything, but we didn't," he said. "One of the reasons we chose that property is because it is surrounded by farmland on three sides. There are no houses in the immediate area besides one we own."
Cotton said that stopping at a certain time was a possibility he had already discussed with the city.
"We said we would try to be as accommodating as possible and we will."
Mayor Terry Pitman said that because the land, which was annexed by Burgin two years ago, is private property there is not much the city can do to control what happens there.
"We don't have planning and zoning, so long as what goes on at the property is legal we won't have a lot of say in it," Pitman said. "He told us he just wanted a small dirt track, so our initial reaction was that it could be a fun thing. We will see."
Cotton said that there are no plans to run larger vehicles at the track in the future. He hopes people will soon be able to focus on the benefits that the track could yield for the town.
"It will bring people here and hopefully they will look around and spend money in the community."
