Repaving Begins At Kansas Speedway
As soon as the STP 400 was over at Kansas Speedway, the track would begin working on a new look as the repaving process began.
Kansas’s plan to repave and improve the track surface was scheduled to begin at the end of the Cup race just like Phoenix did last year. Tanks and bulldozers made their presence felt prior to the race as a variety of them were parked around the track.
During the weekend memories of the 2010 Daytona 500 came to mind when a 5-imch piece of asphalt came of the track and made a small pothole. The pothole was covered up twice in order for the track to be ready for the STP 400.
The new surface is expected to be complete just in time for the Chase race in October.
