— Knoxville Raceway —
Bryan Clauson Suite Tower
The tower sits in turn 2 of the Knoxville Raceway. The newly constructed tower rests directly next to the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame.
It’s the latest building addition to the Knoxville Raceway. Construction was ongoing during the 2017 racing season.
When it’s complete, the building will set five levels tall. Each of the top 3 stories will feature 4 units. 12 new suites will be available at Knoxville Raceway.
Each suite will have a deck for viewing the track. In addition, renters will have access to the roof of the building.
They broke ground on the project in June 2017. The project is expected to be completed in 2018. The estimated costs are $3.4 million.
The new tower will honor Bryan Clauson. The open wheel racing tragically lost his life in an on-track accident back in August 2016.
