MIS Fan Enhancement Projects BeginShare
Foundation for Improved Grandstand Seating Currently Being Poured
Michigan International Speedway's fan enhancement projects, which were announced by the track in October, are beginning to take shape with the replacing of new grandstands in Turn One.
The old grandstands have been removed and concrete foundations for the new seating are being poured. Southern Bleacher Company has begun the project and is contracting much of the work to various businesses from throughout the Midwest and State of Michigan.
"This is just the beginning of many projects that will improve the overall fan experience at Michigan International Speedway," MIS President Roger Curtis said. "This is all part of an ongoing commitment to the race fans that support us. We are dedicated to making their experience when they are here one that they will remember."
Two existing grandstands in Turn One are being replaced with new, fan friendly grandstands. The new grandstands will offer race fans premium seating and amazing sightlines of the two-mile oval. Seats in the new grandstands are four inches wider than the seats in the old grandstands, and will allow fans to have more leg room. In addition, all of the new seats are bench-style with seat backs. The new grandstands are also higher than the old grandstands so fans who sit there will have breathtaking views of all the on-track action at MIS ¿ including a fantastic view down pit road.
The new seats will carry Michigan International Speedway's familiar and distinct yellow and red pattern.
This is just the first of several projects that MIS is doing to enhance the race fans' experience for 2007. Along with the new Turn One seating, MIS has also announced plans for enhanced tram stops and additional trams for disabled guests, as well as RV camping along pit road. A new parking lot for Skylounge Suite holders is also being constructed next to the AAA Motorsports Fan Plaza.
