May - Eldora Speedway Trucks: May - Chicagoland Speedway: Texas Motor Speedway will begin a major capital improvement project Monday consisting of a complete repave, construction of an extensive drainage system and a re-profiling of the 1.
The renovation will add a new layer of asphalt over the existing pavement, an expansive French drainage system on the frontstretch and backstretch, and reduce the banking in Turns 1 and 2 by four degrees.
The repaving and drainage system come as a result of issues the facility was incurring in attempting to dry the racing surface, in particular this past year when both NASCAR race weekends and the INDYCAR race were affected by weather-related delays. While the aged track surface at Texas Motor Speedway is lauded by drivers, speedway officials made the decision to repave in the best interests of their fans that had to deal with the inconveniences of the delays.

For the installation of the French drainage system, trenches will be cut in numerous locations on the frontstretch and backstretch to provide multiple points for water to drain away from the facility more quickly and efficiently than the current system. In addition to the repaving and drainage system, Texas Motor Speedway will undergo a re-profiling in Turns 1 and 2 to give the venue a more unique layout from its currently symmetrical degree banking in all four turns.
While Turns 3 and 4 will remain unchanged, the banking of Turns 1 and 2 will be decreased to 20 degrees with the racing surface width expanding from 60 to 80 feet in that section of the track. The reduced banking, which will decrease lap speeds and potentially open up additional passing opportunities in Turns 1 and 2, will provide Texas Motor Speedway with a new, distinctive layout for a 1.

While scanning multiple camera monitors does require a great deal of skill, the TV director can use his eyes as well as his ears to select his next source.

Beyond just announcing a deal, AdvoCare to me has been a perfect fit. It is something I believe in. I take the product in the race car and when we have distributors out to the track I am able to show them the inside of the car and where my rehydrate gels are that I am taking during the race.
That is a lot harder than it looks. They have a crazy system of lights flashing everywhere and I was running around trying to load up a box to ship out. Those people are pretty talented that do all that stuff. Kind of like Martinsville last weekend. We had a really fast race car here last time and that put us in position to lead some laps. We stayed out longer than the 78 and were leading the race, waiting on the caution, and it never came.
