Roy P. Drachman Track and Field Stadium
(MW Track & Field)

The 1999 season will mark the 19th year that the University of Arizona track and field program has called Roy P. Drachman Stadium home. In 1981, the Wildcats moved from Arizona Stadium to the location at 15th Street and Plummer Avenue. The facility first took the name of Rincon Vista Stadium. However, several years ago, thanks to generour donations that allowed the facility to be upgraded, the Arizona Athletics Department renamed the Wildcats' home the Roy P. Drachman Track and Field Stadium.

Considered one of the fastest and most functionally designed complexes in the country, the stadium has played host to several outstanding track and field meets. The list includes the 1995 and 1985 Pac-10 Championships, the 1987 TAC Junior and Intermediate Championships, the 1983 WCAA Championships and the annual Tucson Elite Classic and Willie Williams Classic. Drachman Stadium is also slated to be the home of the 2003 Pac-10 Championships.

During the fall of 1994, work was completed on the Drachman Stadium track. It now features a state-of-the-art surface and nine-lane Rekortan track with the latest design in field event competition areas. All field event runways and approaches are on the same Rekortan surface.

In 1989, a computerized scoreboard was installed at the southeast corner of the track. It features include a timing clock, message board and capabilities to generate updated team and individual results.

The seating capacity of Drachman Stadium is over 5,000. The largest crowd to attend an event at the complex was a standing-room only crowd estimated over 6,000 people at the 1988 Tucson Elite Classic.
