We’re also sure of a sellout of our Trackside Parking spots – one of the most unique racing/tailgate opportunities anywhere – and hopeful we’ll have a full grandstand where fans will see a great race and act as part of a giant ‘studio audience’ for the subsequent World Crown 300 two-hour television broadcast.
