President Roger Curtis said. "Citizens Bank is doing
a fantastic job of being a first-time sponsor of a NASCAR

The new grandstands
are more fan-friendly and will offer race fans premium
seating and amazing sightlines of the two-mile oval. Seats
in the new grandstands are four inches wider than the
seats in the old grandstands, and will allow fans to have
more leg room. In addition, all of the new seats are bench-style
with seat backs. The new grandstands are also higher than
the old grandstands so fans who sit there will have breathtaking
views of all the on-track action at MIS — including
a fantastic view down pit road.
