MARTINSVILLE, Va. — More fans require more space. That's why Martinsville Speedway is expanding.
This week crews started tearing down old restrooms to make room for a wider walkway and larger restrooms.
Fans complained about not enough restrooms and walkways being too cramped.
Last winter crews remodeled concession stands and restrooms in other parts of the track.
"This is a continuation and finishing of that project of tearing out these really old restrooms and building brand new ones, doubling the size," said Mick Smith, the Speedway's Public Relations Director.
Bathrooms that crews were demolishing on Wednesday were built when the track held only 20,000 fans.
Now the stands hold nearly 70,000. The project is set to be done well before the spring race in April.
