Kentucky Speedway adding surface layer to track

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The track was repaved earlier this year, but the Kentucky Speedway is adding another surface layer to its track.

Speedway officials say the renovations do not meet construction specifications.

Experts say the deficiencies did not impact this year's racing, but would affect the long term viability of the track.

Crews will repave the track again this month and let it cure over winter.

The track is expected to be ready when the 2017 season begins next July.
