Watkins Glen International President Michael Printup announced Wednesday that the historic track will conduct a repaving project in the summer of 2015. It is the first time the track will be repaved since 1998. The repave will begin with "The Boot" in July, followed by the short course immediately following the Cheez-It 355 at The Glen NASCAR Sprint Cup Series weekend in August. The repave is slated for completion in advance of the 2016 race season. "This is a significant project for Watkins Glen International, our competitors, fans and track rental customers," Printup stated. "The repave is a tremendous undertaking and next summer is the right time to begin this historic project and prepare The Glen for the future." Asphalt specialists and engineers conducted a thorough evaluation of The Glen's entire circuit and recommended the current timeline. Further details and project specifics will be released at a later date. As a result of the repave, the Glenora Wine Cellars U.S. Vintage Grand Prix presented by Welliver will take place July 24-26. Information regarding renewals and ticket sales will be shared with customers in the coming weeks. Fans will be able to witness the project from the Fans R1st Viewing Area in the Argetsinger Grandstand. That area will continue to be free and open to the public through the end of October. Fans will also be able to follow the progress of the project via Facebook, Twitter and TheGlen.com.(WGI)(11-5-2014)

Been looking forward to this - I've heard in the past that they will slightly crown the surface and improve drainage, in hopes of better racing in the rain. And if we thought this place was fast before...

This is very exciting. I am looking forward to this. The only thing I will miss is the slipping and sliding around some of the corners.

By the sounds of it, we have one more NASCAR race on the old surface - they're redoing the main track right after the race weekend.

I see "competition cautions" to "check tirewear" coming to WG for a couple three years after the repavec.c

As a local I am looking forward to going to the Goodyear tire tests in 2016! I'll be interested to see what happens with the areas where there are concrete strips.
