Construction Begins on Additional Pit Road Suites
Construction is underway on six additional pit road suites at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Crews have begun pouring the concrete pylons which will support the new structure along pit road.
The suites are 11 feet above pit road and are as close as fans can get to the action, overlooking the race team pit boxes. The original suites, built in 2012, were sold out prior to last year’s NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race. The open-air, covered seating areas can accommodate up to 15 people and include exclusive access to the Winner’s Circle Lounge located adjacent to Victory Circle. The lounge includes a bar, meeting room, seating areas, televisions and restrooms.
“Our goal is to bring fans to the 50-yard-line of racing. The suites are at the epicenter of all of the excitement of the race and provide a place to sit and enjoy the experience, with easy access to the amenities of the Winner’s Circle Lounge,” said Dan Farrell, senior vice president of corporate sales for Charlotte Motor Speedway. “It’s like having a seat on the sidelines of an NFL game. These suites provide a bird’s eye view of all of the action on pit road.”
The new suites will be added on to the existing structure toward the Turn 1 end of pit road. Suite holders receive 15 tickets to each of eight NASCAR events and have the option to purchase catering for the suite. Farrell says four of the six new suites are already sold, and he expects a complete sellout within the next few weeks before the NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race on May 18.
