MAPLE GROVE SURFACE REWORKED
An unimpeachable source has confirmed with Torco’s CompetitionPlus.com that the NHRA has worked around the clock in preparing the Maple Grove Raceway surface and the work appears to have attained the desired results.
Reportedly the NHRA ground the racing surface because it wasn’t to their satisfaction with this weekend’s event being the final installment before the Countdown to the Championship is scheduled to begin. Torco’s CompetitionPlus.com was told the NHRA felt they needed more surface area than was currently present.
The NHRA, according to a source, had crews on stand-by in case the initial track prep didn’t take. By Wednesday afternoon, the track prep crews were applying rubber through their rubber-application machine.
