This 96,000 SF NASCAR racing facility accommodates three goals: sustaining R&D production, providing a destination point for fans, and meeting the demands of corporate sponsors. Fans enter through a two-story atrium display space with race cars and trophy cases, adjacent to a viewing gallery overlooking the 30,000 SF prep shop in the adjoining fabrication facility. A 100-seat stepped theater/auditorium is also entered through the atrium. An 86,000 SF production, R&D and fabrication facility is located a level below the ground floor of the pavilion. Included in this fabrication facility are a 10,000 SF machine shop with 3-D computer lathe machinery, a 10,000 SF integrated testing facility housing a dynacam, and other individual testing components along with a paint shop, body shop and prep shop. Other amenities include an employee athletic facility with a gym, lockers and showers.
