Improvement Project To Begin Monday At Texas Motor Speedway
In a press release issued Friday, Texas Motor Speedway stated, the project will consist of a complete repave, construction of an extensive drainage system and a re-profiling of the 1.5-mile oval configuration at the motorsports facility that annually plays host to both NASCAR and IndyCar events.
Plans call for, adding a new layer of asphalt over the existing pavement, an expansive French drainage system on the front-stretch and back-stretch, and reduce the banking in Turns 1 and 2 by four degrees. Depending on weather conditions, the project is expected to be completed by early to mid-March in anticipation of the O’Reilly Auto Parts 500 NASCAR doubleheader scheduled for April 7-9.
This will be the second full repave since Texas Motor Speedway opened in 1997.
