The vertical lines you see in the stands are aisles.  There are two sections or boxes between aisles.

STAND B is shown in orange
Stand B is the track's second grandstand, originally built in 1910.
The current version was built in 1954 and renovated in 2003 and 2016.
Above is how Penthouse B looks like after the 2016 rebuild.  Notice the 3-row upper deck that was added.

Below shows how the new roof over B Penthouse appears.
Grandstand B at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway is along the outside of
the front straight toward Turn 1.  

It has a view of the front straight and Turn 1.
Stand B has two levels:

PENTHOUSE B - upper deck, and STAND B - lower deck
The Penthouse level has a roof.
The Penthouse acts as a roof for the back upper half of STAND B.

Each of these may be divided further:

Rows A - H
Rows AA-CC
The front rows will be in the sun early in the day.  Rows G & H have support beams blocking views.
A new 3-row upper tier added in 2016.  Contains even further sight line disruptions, especially at the
south end where the roof of Penthouse E blocks the view of Turn 1.
Notes: Elevators were installed in 2016 and some seating was made available for wheel chairs.
The fold up chairs were replaced with stadium-style chairs.
There are bathrooms and concession stands up there.
Seat 1 is on the aisle.
STAND B is divided into Boxes, randing from Box 1 at the northern end and going up to Box 25.

Rows Q - Z  are in the upper part of the stand and consists of aluminum stands with backrests.
Rows E - P  are in a lower section and contains fold up chairs.  The number of rows  vary from box to box.

Each letter consists of two rows - the first row cotains seats 1-12, 2nd row is seats 13-24.
Front lower rows, not protected from rain, but will be in shade later in the afternoon.
Higher rows are protected from rain.  Only top half protected from morning sun.
Notes: View of Giant TV across the track from middle of STAND B
