Turn One Terrace coming to Texas Motor Speedway

by Mike Haag | Posted on Friday, March 1st, 2019

FORT WORTH, Texas – Texas Motor Speedway is getting a new addition this season.

Turn One Terrace, an 11,639 square foot viewing deck between Turns 1 and 2 that will be located under The Speedway Club, was officially unveiled at TMS’ annual Media Day held Wednesday at the Speedway Club at Texas Motor Speedway.

Texas Motor Speedway President Eddie Gossage said the Turn One Terrace project is the first step in a multi-year renovation to upgrade the speedway.  The new addition will help make every aspect of the race day experience even friendlier for TMS race fans.

Turn One Terrace will feature seating for 1,200 fans.  Gossage said the luxury location will give fans room to move around and allows them access to the 4th Floor of The Speedway Club.

That access also provides an indoor-outdoor experience, catered food and beverage, and other amenities that fans would not get with a general admission grandstand seat.

“Fans today aren’t going to stadiums and arenas just to see a game. They can easily sit at home and do that. What they want is an environment where they can really enjoy this live spectacle with friends,” said Gossage. “They want to socialize in ways you can’t when sitting in Seats 1-10 of a regular section. That’s the idea behind ‘No Limits Next.’ Give our guests the best race they can get while allowing them to enjoy it in the way a modern fan desires. It started in 2018 with the Busch Restart Bar, it continues in 2019 with Turn One Terrace, and it isn’t close to ending here.”

TMS officials also announced that the fan-favorite Coca-Cola Raceday U is moving from its location outside Turn 2 into the speedway to the new deck. Attendees in March can expect to learn the intricacies of the sport from 2017 and 2018 AAA Texas 500 winner Kevin Harvick, as well as other Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series drivers and special guests.

Wednesday’s Media Day event also featured a visit to the track from Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series competitors Ryan Blaney (2018 AAA Texas 500 pole winner and 2018 My Bariatric Solutions 300 Xfinity Series winner), and Erik Jones (four-time Texas Motor Speedway winner in the NASCAR Xfinity Series and NASCAR Gander Outdoor Truck Series), NASCAR Xfinity Series driver Cole Custer (2018 O’Reilly Auto Parts 300 winner), and NASCAR Gander Outdoor Truck Series rookie Sheldon Creed (2017 Stadium Super Trucks No Limits Offroad Rumble winner at TMS).

Scott Dixon, the five-time and reigning NTT IndyCar Series champion, who has three victories at Texas Motor Speedway including last year’s DXC Technology 600, was also on hand for the event.

“It’s always an honor and a privilege to have drivers of the stature and caliber of those here today to help open the doors to start another great season of racing at Texas Motor Speedway,” said Gossage. “Each driver has won here in their careers and three, Blaney, Dixon and Custer, pulled into Winner’s Circle here just last year. We appreciate them taking the time out of their busy race schedules to meet with the media here to help get the word out on what’s coming up in the weeks and months ahead.”

The Texas Motor Speedway season opens March 29-31 with the O’Reilly Auto Parts 500 NASCAR tripleheader. The race weekend features the Gander Outdoors Truck Series Vankor 350 on Friday, March 29; the Xfinity Series My Bariatric Solutions 300 on Saturday, March 30; and the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series O’Reilly Auto Parts 500 on Sunday, March 31.

The IndyCar Series returns to Texas Motor Speedway June 6-8 with the DXC Technology 600 on June 8. The weekend will also include the Rattlesnake 400 NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series race on June 7.
