The new track surface approaches completion at Talladega Superspeedway, with the final wear layer down on the backstretch and well into the tri-oval and frontstretch. Workers are completing the third and final pass near the bottom of turns three and four today and will be completing turns one and two in the next several days. Soon, the final layer of asphalt will be complete all the way around the 2.66-mile track, followed by finishing touches on the apron, pit road and skid pad areas. Then, work will begin to restore fencing and landscaping to pristine condition in time to welcome fans back for the UAW-Ford 500 event weekend, set for Oct. 6 - 8.
