Virginia International Raceway Gets Makeover


Alton, VA--  The makeover of Virginia International Raceway's historic track is officially done.

Work started on the upgrades a month ago.

VIR said the asphalt on the track was 14-years-old, so they decided to repave the whole three and half mile course. Pit Lane and certain areas on the track were also widened.

The North Paddock area, where drivers park their haulers, has been re paved as well. 

With all the changes made, race fans will have a better view of the start and finish line.
Part of the renovations moved the line downhill for better visibility.
