  • For the bar room on that support wall what you could do is small square glass panes around a giant tv that has a live feed of the track on race days from a top-down perspective :)

  • Cleetus - you NEVER want to serve anything in bottles or cans, crazy fans (especially the drunk ones) throw them, hit other patrons with them, and make a mess. You need to pour beverages into large cups for the crazies :o) Beer, Soda, everything! I worked Security at The Meadowlands Sports Complex in NJ for a few years, and event goers were patted down at the gate to get rid of the bottles and cans, they could bring whatever they wanted in a soft flask. REMEMBER - even a plastic bottle full of soda will do damage as soon as it becomes a MISSLE! A metal can - even more so.

  • Post mix/tap beverages are more profitable, cans and bottles are throwable... They are "Concessions" for a reason. Landlord is a much easier job.

  • Honestly you should really consider completely re building all those "shack" builds under the bleachers. Pretty much guarantee the rest of them are just months away from being in the same condition as the one you tore down. Some of the interior stuff might be salvaged like the bars, but the walls and ceilings are all likely barely holding on.

You've got your hands full but with your great friends and determination you'll have a beautiful place for your followers to come and partake in the festivities. I'm following you like a flea on a dirty dog and hoping you do great.

  • I’m a week late on this but you sure you want to extend the bar to the walk way to serve the patrons who are walking by. Wouldn’t that create a some blockage because it’s a walk way and now you have maybe 2 lines forming and blocking that walk way. You did say put suggestions. Everything else very nice. Aloha from Hawaii and please I’d like to see more Shaka 🤙🏾 in your vids would be cool

  • As several other people told you, you should REALLY KEEP THE BOX SODA POP SYSTEM!! Have a Coke and a Pepsi sales person come out, look at you systems, give you a prices to make yours work and new priced system. Then ask what the PER UNIT COST is and what your profit margin would be. A LOT CHEAPER THAN HANDLING, STORING, AND RETURNING CANS ANDPLASTIC BOTTLES. All you have is clean up costs of paper cups with lids and PAPER STRAWS!! PLEASE talk to a pop sales person.

  • Address your demographic before doing anything. Canned beer is far less profitable. Tap beer is far more social and profitable, If you want them at the bar you'll have televise the track in the bar (they'll never leave). If you want them buying beer and taking it back to their seats, then cans will be better. And maybe styrofoam cooler carriers (2-pak-4-pak, 6-pak) will piuck up your profit. It's all in how you market it. This sounds like a fun project, I hope your money-flow is good.. Food is the other consideration. How are you hoping to cycle your customers? Just Hotdogs and hamburgers? Then send them back to their seats. Anything more elaborate? If there's enough room you might do both. Concessions can make your racetrack work if it's done right and people want to be there.
