"The 22 trucks, generators, and lighting systems will create as much light as nearly half a million car headlights," he adds.The Cleveland layout is the only 2-mile circuit in the U.S. where fans can see the entire racetrack from bleacher seats. The event draws more than 100,000 fans over the three days of competition.
