New restrooms and improved drainage system coming to the MIScamping.com Infield Campground in 2017Share
Construction on the two news restrooms in the MISCamping.com Infield Campground is progressing at Michigan International Speedway.
Two original restrooms have been torn down. And footers have been poured for the new structures. The restrooms will be finished in time for the 2017 race season.
In addition, updates to the infield draining system will be ready for guests beginning in 2017.
“It is exciting to see the progress our team is making to enhance the experience of our infield guests,” track President Rick Brenner said. “It is important to take care of some of the most avid fans who camp with us on race weekend. They are part of our community and we want to make their experiences memorable.”
The improvements began in the summer with architectural renderings presented to the track for approval. Two of the restroom facilities in the infield will be torn down and completely replaced by two larger restrooms in turns two and three, similar to the bathroom facility in the center of the infield built in 2013.
The improvements don’t stop there. NASCAR’s fastest track is improving the drainage system throughout the MISCamping.com Infield. The track will install 70, 18-inch catch basins with grates to help with water drainage. The catch basins will be attached by more than 8,000 linear feet of sock tile.
And once again in 2017, guests can start camping in the infield on Monday of race week. Infield guests should enter the infield through the M-50 crossover and can begin set-up for the weekend of a lifetime at 6 p.m. Monday of race week.
