FORT WORTH, Texas (February 6, 2018) – In an effort to create a better overall experience for all of its fans, officials announced Tuesday that the grandstands at Texas Motor Speedway will be completely smoke-free, including all electronic cigarette devices, beginning this year.
Texas Motor Speedway established a ban on smoking in the grandstands in 2013, but the updated policy to include e-cigarettes and vapes comes as a result of strong feedback from guest surveys and the speedway’s fan council. Speedway guests will still be able to smoke – both standard and electronic smoking products – in designated areas throughout the lower concourse area.
The 2018 season at Texas Motor Speedway begins in less than three months when NASCAR returns April 6-8 for the O’Reilly Auto Parts 500 doubleheader.
