Atlanta will reconsider track repave

Speedway Motorsports Inc. chairman Marcus Smith said a planned repaving of Atlanta, which is set to begin soon after the race weekend, could be put on hold.

Drivers in all three of NASCAR's national series have made comments this weekend asking the track not to repave in order to preserve the high-quality racing it currently produces.

"I want to sign all the drivers up to the 'glue team' to help glue the track back together," Smith said. "It's something that we're definitely looking into. I love all the positive comments that we've gotten. We're going to have to look into it."
