Multi Year Paving Project Nears the End

Several years ago we initiated a multi-phase plan to repave the entire track.

This week that plan enters the final stage as the only remining portion of track that has not received new pavement will be completed.

The remaining area of the North Track, from turn 8 down the front straightaway, will be paved this week.

With the completion of this seven year project the road course is now in better condition than it has ever been.

The improvements in drainage and the elimination of bumps, along with a stronger base of asphalt will assure the high quality of our track for many years to come.
