CONSTRUCTION UPDATE: TRACK PAVING COMPLETED AND THE TRACK WILL RE-OPEN ON FEB. 2 AS SCHEDULED
KERSHAW, SC -1/29/08

As of today we have completed all of the paving on track and we're happy to once again confirm that the track will re-open on Feb 2 as originally scheduled.  Next week will be spent on finishing up the hydro seeding in the paddock along with painting the trackside curbs.  We're excited about opening the gates back up and getting everyone back out on track. Below are some of the latest pictures from the last couple of days.

Check back with us next week to see the latest pictures as we finish up all of our construction get back to racing.

CAROLINA MOTORSPORTS PARK BEGINS CONSTRUCTION ON TRACK REVISIONS AND EXPANSION

KERSHAW, SC (Jan 2, 2007) - Carolina Motorsports Park has begun construction on the first phase of their 5-year expansion plan put in place by the new management. Track revisions are being made to turns 12, 13 & 14. The new section will be faster than the existing configuration. The original turns 12 &13 will be retained with the new section creating an alternate track configuration. Turn 14 is being changed permanently. The apex curbing is being removed and 16 ft. of pavement is being added to the inside of the corner to make it about 5 MPH faster. The track will also be doing some asphalt repairs to most of the corners to help reduce tire wear along with additional paving to the paddock roads.

In addition, there are 24 day garages being built. The day garages will be available for rent on a daily or weekend basis. You may begin making your reservations for the garages on January 2 for the upcoming season. This first phase will also include a 200 ft. skidpad that will be 50 ft. wide and equipped with an irrigation system. All of the projects are scheduled to be completed by February 1, 2008.

Below are some pictures of the current projects. Please make sure that you keep checking back with us at http://www.carolinamotorsportspark.com to keep up with our progress as we will continue to update the construction photos every couple of days.
