The second floor grandstand seating is an all reserved bleacher or bench style seat, similar to what you might find at a football stadium for example. These seats are very economical and would most likely be good choices for budget-conscious purchases. The main difference in pricing is reflected in the proximity to the finish line. Section 221 is a preferred seat to Section 225 for example and offers a better view of the finish line. You also have an improved viewing experience in the second floor grandstand versus the 100 level grandstand. Great view of the stretch run as well.
