Daytona needs more repave work

   Daytona International Speedway plans to make long-term repairs to the area of Turn 3 where Juan Pablo Montoya struck a jet-dryer during the Daytona 500 and ignited a large fire that delayed the race for more than two hours.

    Lane Construction, which handled Daytona's recent repaving project of the entire track, will remove the affected area of Turn 3 and repave it. The project will be completed in time for the July NASCAR race weekend.

    “Once this work is complete, we expect no further issues related to the jet dryer crash,” said track president Joie Chitwood III.
