Media Center Demo April 9, 2018


Following the Desert Diamond West Valley Casino Phoenix Grand Prix, ISM Raceway today took a major swing at its massive infield renovation with the demolition of its media center. A chorus of cheers erupted as a wrecking ball connected with the front windows of the 31-year-old media center. 

The removal begins the transition to a new, state-of-the-art media center that will nearly quadruple in space from the existing 6,000 square feet to a nearly 24,000-square-foot facility. The media’s new home will boast 201 work stations for reporters, photographers and public relations representatives, as well as five interview rooms, a conference room and a 1,300-square-foot lounge with an adjacent kitchen. The new space will also have 11 garage offices and will host drivers’ meetings in a new 4,000-square-foot space with large windows, allowing fans to get an up-close look.  

The new facility, part of the ISM Raceway Project Powered by DC Solar, is a key component of the completely redesigned infield for the track. The new infield will offer better accommodations for fans, media and partners and bring fans up-close and personal with the drivers through the new garages and Fan Zone upon completion in November 2018 for the Can-Am 500.
