Packed grandstands. Since Jim France has taken over the reins of NASCAR, the series has been on the rise
UPDATE Estimated total attendance at ISM was "more than 50,000."

11/08/19 This rumor is upgraded to 'fact' today. ISM Raceway has announced a sellout crowd for Sunday’s NASCAR Cup Series Bluegreen Vacations 500, the second time in a row it has done so after its $178M renovation. The track sold out its roughly 45,000 seats comprising the Allison grandstand that was built as part of the renovation of the venue that wrapped up last year.
The track, which says it still has infield passes available, will move next year to hosting NASCAR’s championship weekend instead of serving as the second-to-last weekend as it is this year. This marks the fourth sellout of the 36-race NASCAR Cup Series season, after the Daytona 500 and races at Watkins Glen Int'l and Darlington Raceway. The season ends next week at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Adam Stern/SBD
