Construction trucks are rolling at Route 66 Raceway, where a number of spruce-up projects are on the docket for completion before winter arrives at the home of the United Association Route 66 NHRA Nationals. The racing surface has already been demolished to make way for 200 additional feet of concrete, which will extend the concrete surface to 700 feet from the starting line. Two coats of asphalt sealant will be applied to speed the drying process toward the top end of the track, and a permanent wall will replace a temporary wall on the right side of the track in the shutdown area. The initiatives are a further example of the track's commitment to maintaining a facility that ranks among the best dragstrips in the nation. Route 66 Raceway's regular E.T. bracket racing series will resume in early 2011, and the track's NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing Series event is scheduled for July 7-10.
