As you may have already figured out, burning fuel and pavement don't exactly mix.
The jet dryer that blew up in an accident with Juan Pablo Montoya at the Daytona 500 will require a repave of Turn 3 at Daytona International Speedway, the track announced Friday morning.
After the upcoming Daytona 200 AMA motorcycle race, DIS will conduct "long-term repairs" to Turn 3, track president Joie Chitwood III said in a statement.
The repairs will include "removing and repaving the affected areas."
"Once this work is complete, we expect to have no further issues related to the jet dryer crash and we'll be ready to go for the Coke Zero 400," he said.
As for this weekend, Chitwood said the track has gone to great lengths to make sure the bikes racing on the track will be safe in Turn 3.
"We have washed and cleaned the affected area of the racetrack in Turn 3 multiple times, and applied street bond," he said. "We have worked closely with AMA Pro Racing officials and we're both very confident it will not present any issues during the Daytona 200."
