Goodyear held a tire test at Michigan International Speedway this week after the track was recently repaved. The participating drivers seemed happy with the new surface. It marks the fourth time the racetrack has been repaved. The track was built in 1968, and repaved in 1977, 1986 and 1995.
Juan Pablo Montoya, Matt Kenseth, Brad Keselowski, Jeff Gordon and Kyle Busch tested the new MIS surface on Tuesday and Wednesday. While repaves aren’t usually embraced by drivers, those who turned the first laps this week seemed satisfied with the results.
“I am not a big fan of repaves,” Gordon said. “So the fact that I am talking positive about it and still enjoying the racetrack as much as I always have I think that is a sign where I rank it. I rank it very high.”. MORE>>>
