In addition, a professional show field is being developed on the north side of the campus that includes a Sales & Registration Building, a Vendor and Swapper Plaza, and the Field of Dreams (an outdoor concert arena). A park-like setting is envisioned which will make this venue a sure-fire winner for many different automotive entertainment applications.
