TMS To Add "Burnout Alley"

Texas Motor Speedway president Eddie Gossage on Monday unveiled a $2 million capital improvement project that will transform the upper half of the track's backstretch area into a lavish motorcoach area known as "Burnout Alley."

Burnout Alley will consist of 74 expansive sites with numerous amenities that will make it the ultimate destination for fans traveling and entertaining in their motorcoaches for NASCAR and IndyCar Series race weeks. Each gated courtyard will be 30x60 feet and include full service hook-ups for water, electric and live race feeds; concierge service that will include grocery shopping; catering options; free wireless Internet and 24-hour restroom access.

• Project to be completed prior to April's NASCAR race weekend

• 74 spaces available at $15,000 each for an entire TMS race season

• Numerous amenities, over-sized site footprint makes Burnout Alley the ultimate destination for race fans with motorhomes
The ticket package for each race week will consist of 10 VIP passes for Burnout Alley; 10 pre-race passes for each Sprint Cup Series race; 10 pit/infield passes; two access passes for The Speedway Club; 10 souvenir event programs; and three reserved parking spaces nearby.

"Our demand for motor home space -- even this year during a downturn economy -- has continued to rise each and every year, and our fans have indicated to us that there was a need for this type of project," Gossage said. "We pride ourselves at Texas Motor Speedway for providing what our fans want as well as our creativity, and Burnout Alley is a product of both. Once we got involved in the development of this project, we wanted to make Burnout Alley the ultimate RV area of any speedway race fans will ever visit."

Each site in Burnout Alley will sell for $15,000 annually for an entire Texas Motor Speedway race season that consists of two NASCAR weeks and one for the IndyCar Series.

The project has a targeted 75-day construction period, which would have a projected completion date for Burnout Alley of early to mid-March.

The construction of Burnout Alley will eliminate approximately 21,022 seats on the backstretch and reduce the capacity in that section from approximately 30,850 to 9,850. The overall seating capacity for TMS will move to approximately 138,100.

Despite the reduction, the Sprint Cup Series races are expected to annually remain as the two largest-attended, single-day sporting events in Texas and among the 20 largest in the United States.

"With the reduction in seating on the backstretch in addition to the special pricing we also announced today, we're expecting those tickets to go fast and also put a premium on securing a frontstretch ticket for the NASCAR race weeks," Gossage said.
