Another NASCAR track to rip out 40,000 seats SPORTSBUSINESS JOURNAL's Muret & Mickle reported Charlotte Motor Speedway "has discussed tearing down its backstretch grandstand, a move that would eliminate almost 40,000 seats and make it the latest in a series of NASCAR tracks to reduce capacity." Sources said that CMS President Marcus Smith has "talked about the idea of eliminating the Diamond Tower Terrace and funneling fans into the main grandstand, where they can see the facility's video board and pit road." The terrace, which "runs from Turn 2 to halfway down the backstretch, holds 37,000 spectators and 37 suites." The track has 140,000 total seats SPORTSBUSINESS JOURNAL
