To fill some of the empty space, the event's organizers are building a 1,500-foot-long race track inside the convention center. The circuit will be located in hall 7, which is usually where suppliers and aftermarket companies exhibit their products. We haven't seen photos of it yet, so we don't know what it will be paved by, but the organizers said it will include sweeping turns, bends and long straights.
