Let It Slide: Auto Club Speedway To Add Playground Fixture To Pit Box Lounge

Patrons can take the slide right to the track's new Victory Lane Bar
Auto Club Speedway yesterday announced plans to "install a slide from its new Pit Box Lounge straight to a bar area, where unlimited beer and wine will be served during its March 23-24 race weekend," according to Jeff Gluck of USA TODAY. Though the slide's design "hasn't been finalized, track President Gillian Zucker favors a curly q spiral to deliver fans -- who would pay $799 apiece for lounge access -- to the track's new Victory Lane Bar." The lounge was "built in converted suites at the Turn 4 end of an infield building that runs the length of pit road." There also is "roof access for ticketholders, but the alcohol included in the admission price is available in a ground-level area that formerly operated as Victory Lane." While some might not think a slide would mix well with alcohol, Zucker said that she "doesn't encourage fans to reach the level of intoxication to where it would be a problem." Bartenders at the track "already stop serving guests if they've had too much" (USA TODAY, 1/15).
