Phoenix Raceway Renovation Will Reduce Grandstand Seats To 45,000

Phoenix Int'l Raceway formally unveiled details of a planned $178M redevelopment of the 53-year-old track. Highlights of the project include new grandstands, a "Fan Zone inside what is currently Turn 1" and "relocating the start-finish line to the current Turn 3 area." The grandstands will feature 45,000 (down from the current 50,000, while it used to be 70,000) "stadium-style seats, each with Wi-Fi, starting in what is now Turn 1 and wrapping around until the dogleg." The "existing front-straight grandstands will be removed and motorcoach spaces sold in that area." Hillside seating "will still be available." ARIZONA REPUBLIC
