In an effort to better serve its fans, Gateway Motorsports Park has expanded its permanent restroom facilities for this weekend’s AAA Insurance NHRA Midwest Nationals.

Located in the new spectator entry area adjacent to the pro pit area and midway, the permanent restroom facilities will be utilized for the first time during an NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series national event. The ladies’ restroom building includes 20 stalls and six sinks. The expanded men’s restroom has 10 stalls, 10 urinals and six sinks.

This expanded permanent restroom facility also will benefit the NHRA teams.

“We are always trying to improve the live event experience for our fans and participants,” said Chris Blair, Gateway Motorsports Park Executive Vice President and General Manager.  “This is just another step to make a day at the races more comfortable at Gateway Motorsports Park.”

Tickets for the AAA Insurance NHRA Midwest Nationals may be purchased at the speedway ticket office, online (www.GatewayMSP.com) or by calling (618) 215-8888. Kids 12 and under are free.
