Las Vegas Motor Speedway's Public Relations Department is providing weekly construction updates as the speedway undergoes its multi-million dollar facelift, which will result in a new fan interactive garage area, a pit road closer to the grandstands, resurfaced and re-banked racing surface and state-of-the-art media center.

In the past week, construction crews have completed the following tasks:

  • Finished grading the banking in turns 3 and 4 and began pouring the base course stone on the superspeedway.
  • Completed the foundation for both the new NASCAR Busch Series garage and the new media center.
  • Began digging out the building pad for the new fan interactive garage area for the Nextel Cup teams.
  • Completed the extension of the vehicular tunnels and began the widening of the road to the tunnels.
  • Completed the pouring of concrete for the new pit boxes.
