NASCAR is hoping they don’t have to go through what it went through at last year’s Daytona 500.

Last year, the Grand Dad of them all, the Daytona 500, in the NASCAR circuit, had to be stopped several times due to the pavement. The race had two lengthy delays, as track officials tried to fix a pot hole between Turn 1 and Turn 2.

A year later, the track has an entire new surface, as it was re-done during the off-season. NASCAR will not allow what happened last year happen again this year, or into the future. Just yesterday, Joey Logano reached 203 mph on the surface.

We are going to get an up-close look at the new track this week. The teams are already in Daytona and are kicking off speed-week, as the Sprint Cup Budweiser Shootout is tonight on FOX. The Shootout is scheduled to run from 8 to 10 pm EST, with the Daytona 500 next Sunday.
