Ajax Paving began milling the Michigan International Speedway oval Tuesday with assistance by an unlikely and not-so-shy person, track President Roger Curtis. Curtis took Ajax up on its offer to ride aboard a milling machine on the five-degree backstretch as the track enters the second stage of its fourth repave in history.
Crews were hard at work Monday removing the SAFER barrier that surrounds the two-mile D-shaped oval in preparation of the track’s repave. The steel and foam energy reduction wall absorbs impacts from crashes.
