A reconfiguration of New Hampshire Motor Speedway's infield will greatly increase its usable space and functionality.
Infield construction began in May of this year after the necessary permits were obtained. After just two months of other structural adjustments and improvements, New Hampshire Motor Speedway is nearing the completion of its infield transformation.
The most impressive of these adjustments is the expansion of the infield, resulting in an increase of over 400 percent in usable land. Overall, this portion of the infield has grown from one and a half usable acres to nearly seven.
Fencing installation was another big project at the speedway. Interior fencing in the infield has been replaced with new, black chain link.
The winner of the LENOX Industrial Tools 301 on Sunday, June 28, will visit a redesigned Victory Lane, also part of the renovation. With more ornate plans in mind for the facility, Vice President of Operations and Development John Zudell said the update will serve as an "interim Victory Lane."
Though physical construction only took two months, the project is the result of 18 months of rigorous planning and approval. When O. Bruton Smith, Chairman and CEO of Speedway Motorsports, Inc., purchased the track in early 2008, he immediately started planning the infield renovation project.
Fans will get to experience Mr. Smith's vision during the LENOX Industrial Tools 301 weekend, starting Thursday, June 25, and can view the renovations firsthand with the Pre-Race Pit Pass, available online for $100.
