The Paddock is a long stand at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway that is in the
middle of the outside of the front straight.  It has several sections:

*  There is an upper deck called the
Paddock Penthouse.  It has a roof.  
The bottom (front) row is A and the top row is M.

* There are two rows of metal chairs below it called the
Penthouse Press Box.  
These seats do not extend south of the Start/Finish Line.  
They have a roof and is protected from the wind, which might be bad on a hot day
when you want a breeze.  They have rows A & B.

* The Paddock seating is divided in two.  
--  The bottom section rows (B-T) closest to the track are the
Paddock Box seats.  
--  The upper rows (P_VV) under the penthouse, are called
Paddock Sections.

Lettering of rows begins at the bottom with "B" and progresses up to "VV" excluding
II

The Paddock offers views of the pits, the finish line and the award presentation after
the race is over.  

There is a big screen TV hanging over Gasoline Alley, and one located over the
Tower Terrace near the Pagoda Tower.

The Paddock
In the map above, the left side is to the south.  This is where the section or box numbering begins.  The Paddock ends at the far right.
The vertical lines you see in the stands are aisles.  There are two sections or boxes between aisles.
Here is an example of the view.  On the left is from a Paddock Box.  On the right is the Paddock Penthouse.
