NORWALK, Ohio – While Miller Brothers Construction and Smith Paving and Excavating have been working countless hours to complete a $1.6 million track reconstruction project at Summit Motorsports Park, unfavorable weather has hampered the progress.

As a result, both the season-opening 37th Annual Spring Warm-Up on April 28-29 and the Lingenfelter Performance Engineering Wednesday Fun Night on May 2 have been canceled.

Summit Motorsports Park’s project and facilities manager Matt Welsh and Summit Motorsports Park president Bill Bader Jr., who have been working closely with both Miller Brothers Construction and Smith Paving and Excavating, will provide further news soon.

When the highly touted project is completed, the staging lanes will be new asphalt and the head of the staging lanes through 100 feet past the finish line will be concrete from barrier wall to barrier wall.

New asphalt from that point through part of the sandtrap at the the end of the track.
