Creating the fastest driving experience in Las Vegas has been a massive undertaking that has involved 500,000 cubic yards of material just to create a base for the asphalt of the racetrack.
To put this into perspective, the Las Vegas Motor Speedway used a 140,000 cubic yards of fill material to complete the resurfacing and new track configuration that took place in 2006.
While this has been a huge project, there are several local landmarks, such as the Hoover Dam, which took even more organic material to build. The Hoover Dam project which took place from 1931-1936, used 4.3 million cubic yards of concrete to complete and helps generate power for public and private utilities in Nevada, Arizona, and California.
We are excited about all of the construction that is currently taking place at SPEEDVEGAS and we look forward to welcoming our first guests to the racetrack in April.
