The track was ground out using GPS navigation to compensate for any fluctuations in the base layer prior to being paved. A 14' center section of the track was repaved from the end of the concrete through the finish line using a laser guided level to ensure a smooth and flat finish. Track GM Ron Biekx inspected the finished product and noted that "the surface looks awesome."
