LEDs Deployed at Sports Venues in VA, IA

Martinsville Speedway in Ridgeway, VA, is one of the highest profile NASCAR race tracks – and, now, one that is lit by LEDs.


The “Light It Up Martinsville” project is complete, according to Ephesus Lighting. The initiative features Easton’s Ephesus Stadium 750 LED professional sports lights, which the story says are located around the perimeter of the track and in the infield. The LEDs, the story says, will provide better illumination, greater flexibility and be more efficient than the metal halide lights that they are replacing.


The project was budgeted at $5 million. Racing returns to the track – now under the new lights — on March 31.


Not all the sports venues switching to LEDs are high profile. This year, Modern Woodmen Park in Davenport, IA — the home of The River Bandits, a minor league baseball team – will be outfitted with LEDs from Musco. The story at OurQuadCities.com reports that the plan was approved by the Davenport City Council in February. Only two other minor league parks are equipped with LEDs, the story says.


The story says that the park will install Musco’s Total Light Control system. Energy consumption is expected to be cut by 40 percent.
