The Lane Construction Corp. has been contracted to repave Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Fla.
Connecticut-based Lane will begin repaving the Daytona NASCAR track on July 4, with a target completion date of January 1, 2011.
Since 2003, Lane has paved several NASCAR tracks, including Talladega Superspeedway, Homestead-Miami Speedway, Richmond International Raceway, Darlington Raceway, Charlotte Motor Speedway, Atlanta Motor Speedway and Texas Motor Speedway.
Lane officials stated it will have a crew of roughly 50 workers repaving the 2.5-mile “tri-oval” track, skid pads, apron and pit road. The project calls for removing all of the existing asphalt, down to the 52-year-old lime rock base.
During the most recent running of the Daytona 500, the race had to be stopped to repair significant potholes that popped up during the race.
