After 163 days of work, crews celebrated the completion of paving at Atlanta Motor Speedway with fireworks and cheers.

The transformation of the 62-year-old raceway started shortly after the checkered flag flew on July 11. Over the course of five months, the speedway was molded into its new shape, sporting steeper 28-degree banked corners, new drainage technology, and coatings of brand-new asphalt.

With paving complete, the 1.54-mile oval is once again ready to racing. Testing is planned for the first week of January to prepare for the first NASCAR races at AMS in 2022.
