Las Vegas Motor Speedway set for upgrades

Las Vegas Motor Speedway has detailed a number of enhancements to the venue’s facilities in a move designed to enhance the fan experience at its events.

Detroit-based architectural firm Rossetti has designed the renovations, which include exclusive clubhouse areas, the new Turn One Social Pavilion, two separate loge-box seat offerings and a racing-inspired interactive sports lounge.

As part of the new layout, rails will separate the ends of the club seating sections and gates will mark the ends of aisles leading to general seating. An outdoor social zone will also be created in the terrace between club seating and clubhouses.

New food and beverage options will be provided in clubhouses, as well as a combination of tables and chairs and soft lounge seating. The Turn One Social Pavilion space will create a ‘party zone’ adjacent to the racing surface.

In addition, fans who have bought annual and weekend grandstand tickets, along with premium-seat holders, will be granted access to the new sports lounge.

Renovation work is currently underway and is expected to be ready in time for the Nascar event at the venue next March.

“We’re extremely excited about the enhancements we have planned for our speedway, and we know fans will enjoy the new features,” LVMS president Chris Powell said. “Sports fans today are looking for greater variety and expect a more dynamic experience at events, and our enhancements will help provide them with memories they won’t soon forget. These changes will help modernise and diversify our facility, and we can’t wait for our loyal fans to reap the benefits of the improvements.

“We have big plans for 2018, and these improvements are a major part of what we expect to be a monumental year for our speedway.”
