Pacific Raceways Breaks Ground on New Innovation Center

Pacific Raceways, the multi-purpose motorsports facility in Kent, WA., has broken ground on the new Pacific Innovation Center and Pacific Motorsports Park, part of a $200 million expansion. 

“We are going to continue to be a race track, and now this transition redefines the infrastructure to include a testbed for transportation industry innovation, and that solidifies the sustainability of racing in our region,” Pacific Raceways President Jason Fiorito said. 

The expansion will total 200,000 square feet and be used as a garage/shop, business, innovation center, and retail space. Racers, retailers, enthusiasts, and technology development companies will be able to utilize prototype manufacturing, storage, and workspace steps away from the track. 

The groundbreaking ceremony at Pacific Raceways was attended by over 100 notable guests, including elected officials, representatives, sponsors, and fans.
