KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) - Kansas Speedway will have a different feel when the Sprint Cup series returns this fall.
Immediately after Sunday's race, an M1A1 Abrams tank and armored combat earthmover from the Kansas Army National Guard will rumble over its asphalt surface, the ceremonial start to a massive renovation project that will include the construction of an infield road course.
The biggest change will be to the surface itself.
The old, worn-out pavement will be stripped away and the underlying material sculpted to transform the uniform 15-degree banking of the original layout to variable banking of 17 to 20 degrees. Pit road will also be reconstructed along with both straightaways.
