NASCAR Repaves and Track Ages

Mar 9, 2017 by NASCAR Wagers

In the wake of last week’s exciting race in the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway, there has been a lot of discussion surrounding Atlanta Motor Speedway’s plans to repave the racing surface which has grown rugged and rigid since it’s last repave job back in 1997. However, the racing that has been produced at Atlanta has been some of the best in NASCAR and easily the best among any of the other 1.5 mile race tracks that dominate the Monster Energy Cup Series schedule each year. Drivers from Matt Crafton to Dale Earnhardt Jr openly expressed their hopes that Atlanta officials would hold off on the repaving plans that are scheduled to start in the upcoming months. In the aftermath of the repaving discussion, Atlanta officials are now reconsidering their plans to repave the track. Whether Atlanta gets a new facelift remains to be determined but I thought this would be a good time to look at all of NASCAR’s repaves over the years. One of the biggest unspoken handicapping tools available is understanding the drivers that perform well on certain surfaces, banking, and track types. Therefore let’s kick off the discussion surrounding the age of some of NASCAR’s tracks to keep in mind for the future.

In many ways last week’s Daytona 500 lived up to the wild, exciting and yet chaotic image of NASCAR’s new title sponsor. Now, the Monster Energy Cup Series moves to Atlanta this Sunday for the running of the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500. Fortunately, restrictor plate racing and it’s unpredictable nature is in our rear view mirror. As I have claimed previously, the “real” handicapping begins this weekend at one of the most exciting 1.5 mile tracks on the circuit via Atlanta Motor Speedway. Tire fall off, tire management, and racing grooves from the bottom to the outside wall are just a few of the byproducts of the racing that will be seen tomorrow afternoon.
