NASCAR lovers rejoice, a new club is racing to Texas Motor Speedway this spring.
Texas Motor Speedway is unveiling a new club seating area, the Restart BAR Zone Club, at the O’Reilly Auto Parts 500 NASCAR doubleheader weekend April 6-8.
Construction is set to begin soon and according to a news release, the club will be located approximately 26 rows above the Restart Zone at the start of the dogleg section on the frontstretch of Texas Motor Speedway’s 1.5-mile oval.
Choate Construction of Atlanta will handle construction duties on the project.
The Restart BAR Zone Club will feature:
• Outdoor seating
• at half-round tables, bar stools and fixed seats
Seating at bars
• backed by high-definition television monitors
• Space to socialize
• as well as games and other activities
• indoor area with beverage service and televisions to follow the race.
“The Restart BAR Zone Club offers several options for our fans that have never been available at Texas Motor Speedway,” SMI Motorsports, Inc. President and Chief Executive Officer Marcus Smith said in the release. “Fans can be outside to take in all the raw action and power fans love to experience at our races or they can go inside to a quieter environment and visit with others. Previously, we have heard from fans that they would enjoy the option of both experiences so this is a way we can accommodate both. Fans are going to love it.”
Designer of the project is Steve Swift, the vice president of operations and development at Speedway Motorsports Inc (SMI). SMI is based out of Charlotte, North Carolina, and is the parent company to Texas Motor Speedway and seven other racing facilities across the country.
The Restart BAR Zone Club also will be available for the Texas Indy 600 INDYCAR/NASCAR/SuperTrucks tripleheader June 7-9 and the AAA Texas 500 NASCAR playoff tripleheader Nov. 1-4.
Ticket options have yet to be finalized and will be announced soon.
