DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – The following statement can be attributed to Daytona International Speedway President Joie Chitwood III:
“We’re looking forward to a successful Daytona 200 on Saturday. Since the jet dryer incident occurred on Feb. 27, we have washed and cleaned the affected area of the racetrack in Turn 3 multiple times, and applied street bond. We have worked closely with AMA Pro Racing officials and we’re both very confident it will not present any issues during the Daytona 200.
“Once we complete our motorcycle events, we are going to conduct long-term repairs to that area of the asphalt, which will include removing and repaving the affected areas. Lane Construction, the team who worked on the track repave in 2010, will handle the repave project. Once this work is complete, we expect to have no further issues related to the jet dryer crash and we’ll be ready to go for the Coke Zero 400 Powered By Coca-Cola in July.”
