SHARE Chicagoland Speedway to add more hospitality areas

The Chicagoland Speedway in Joliet plans to remove two grandstands to make room for more hospitality areas.

In a letter to season-ticket holders, the Speedway announced it was removing grandstand seating from Turns 1 and 4 to make way for hospitality villages. The 1.5-mile tri-oval used for NASCAR races opened in 2001.

“We want to create unique seating and hospitality areas, but this is a work in progress,” Speedway president Scott Paddock told The Herald-News. “We are working with our concession partner, Levy Restaurants, too, and we’re doing this to enhance our brand.”
