Why do they keep changing the most unique tracks like Phoenix and Atlanta?

I have no idea why people are bitching. The track surface has severely fallen in disrepair just like Texas. As a side effect, the racing here and at Texas have been awful. Repaves only usually suck when the track gets modified, like Kentucky this year and even that wasn't too bad. People get too bent out of shape of some that is and needs to be fairly routine.

Apparently too they will be paving over the current surface, no tearing up will be done at all. So some bumps may still be there.

The sooner they repave the sooner a better more driveable old surface will be there lol

A true shame to see happen (since Atlanta has one of the oldest racing surfaces in NASCAR, and it usually puts on a great show due to how abrasive the track is on tires), but it was going to happen eventually due to the old surface being so old. Boy, those qualifying speeds with the new surface are going to be blazing fast when the series heads back to Atlanta for the 2018 races there).

Anyone else here still wished that Atlanta had two races a year (the old March and October race dates)? I miss those days...

Atlanta's surface is almost 20 years old so I knew it was only a matter of time. It's still a shame that this has to happen but on the plus side, Atlanta will regain the "Fastest Non-Superspeedway" title again.
It's probably going to take years before we see racing this again.

Pisses me off they don't have two dates. Far more deserving than Texas.

Looks like we'll be able to turn the clock back to 1997 when the repave is done. Maybe someone will finally break Geoff Bodine's record of 28.074.

i'll never understand when people complain about tracks getting repaved.
It's gonna happen whatever you like it or not.

So you're saying a specific Gibbs car will win. :p

Im okay with this as long as they don't use an asphalt with a super durable aggregate like Phoenix, Charlotte or Loudon. If they use the exact same type of asphalt that they originally used at Atlanta, just think about when the races were the best.. (Early 2000s). So, if they do that, give it 3 or 4 years and we'll finally be seeing those "classic Atlanta finishes" again ;)

I am sure if they used the same kind of asphalt that Darlington Raceway went with when they repaved the track prior to the 2008 Dodge Challenger 500 race, we would see some great racing on a surface that ages well and is still tough on tires after a few years.

Retroactively the 2008 Southern 500
