Texas Motor Speedway downsizing grandstands, updating suites

Built as the largest racetrack in the United States, and second only to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Texas Motor Speedway will now resume its downsizing plans.

Outgoing TMS president Eddie Gossage said the track still plans to undergo a series of upgrades that was delayed because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“I don’t want to say 50,000 because I think that’s too low but I’d think the sweet spot for us is about 75,000,” TMS assistant general manager Kenton Nelson said Monday.

The TMS suites will undergo some type of update as well. TMS would like to turn more of the suites into a “man cave” type of a feel.
