This new venue includes a 30,000 square foot air-conditioned vendor?s exhibit hall and a side-by-side Super Special stage with grandstand seating to accommodate 7,500 spectators.

George,

There will be a bit more transit than previous years but that goes hand and hand with the request from competitors for single central service areas and building events around venues.

Unfortunately we haven't figured out how to get the best of both worlds yet!

The four super special stages will be "real" stages that will provide an excellent show while rewarding good drivers that deliver fast times. We feel it is critical that the super specials be meaningful to the competitors and are something more than just a show for the spectator. Hopefully these four stages, only a short walk from the service area will makeup for a small increase in transit mileage.
