Paving crews have begun applying the final layer of asphalt in turns three and four of Talladega Superspeedway. Three passes will be required to cover the width of the track, and the first pass along the wall is nearly complete. In addition, preparation is underway entering turn three to continue paving the skid pad two extension, where grass has been removed to make way for asphalt along the entire length of the backstretch.
The finished project will result in asphalt repaving of the track, skid pad and pit road, and will be completed by the track's fall UAW-Ford 500 event weekend, set for Oct. 6 - 8.
