Phase 1 of the two-phase multi-year project continues at the construction team finishes the base paving. As the base cures, the contractor will continue to verify grades, conduct smoothness riding tests and proof rolling. The goal is to assure perfection in the base layer.

Next, they will begin clearing the trees behind Turn 1 and work on expanding the gravel pit beginning at Turn 1.

Still to come is the laying of the track surface and chicanes over the base surface and 2” on pit lane. This is the critical step! After curing, there will be another round and smoothness and density testing.

Portions of the curbing will be removed and renovated. The profile of Turn 1 will be altered slightly with the apex curbing placed further inside, taking advantage of the unused space and pavement at that point of the turn.

The asphalt and concrete work will be completed by Thanksgiving. The new track base and surface will be allowed to cure from December through February.

The final touches and line painting will be done late in February, and Thunderbolt will reopen for normal business operations in early March, 2024.

Phase 2 – the addition of two new alternative course configurations inside the classic Thunderbolt circuit – has been rescheduled for after the 2024 season.
