 Pocono Raceway expects a safer track in 2011 and beyond.
The NASCAR track expects to be finished by the end of this year with significant safety upgrades that include a soft-wall barrier and catch fence. Work on the multimillion-dollar project started in October.
The new fence will run from the end of the front stretch and connect with the existing catch fence in Turn 2. The fence will now surround the entire 2.5-mile race track.
The soft-wall barrier will run on the entire length of the inside of the track from the exit of Turn 1 to the entrance of Turn. Pocono Raceway already has soft-wall barriers at each of the track's three turns.
Track President Brandon Igdalsky tells The Associated Press on Tuesday the improvements are overdue.
