Bet­ter views of the ac­tion at Corn­wall Speed­way

The Glengarry News - Glengarry Supplement - - News -

Driv­ers and fans no doubt no­ticed many im­prove­ments when they ar­rived for kick-off of a new sea­son at the Corn­wall Mo­tor Speed­way.

More than 400 loads of clay were brought in last fall to im­prove the rac­ing sur­face. The in­cli­na­tion of the back­stretch was also changed to en­hance safety as­pect and in­crease speeds.

To help pre­pare the track a new wa­ter truck was pur­chased. Some fea­tures were added to of­fer more flex­i­bil­i­ties in wa­ter­ing the clay; this will be ben­e­fi­cial in speed­ing things up on race night es­pe­cially dur­ing in­ter­mis­sion time. A more re­cent tow truck was also ac­quired to fa­cil­i­tate the work of the tow­ing crew.

The pit stands were raised by 18 inches to en­hance the vis­i­bil­ity for fans and race teams; ce­ment blocks were added in front of the bleach­ers to im­prove safety.

Ad­dress­ing a press­ing need, eight toi­lets in the women’s wash­room were changed.

All three tow­ers now have new speak­ers in them; this will en­hance the ex­pe­ri­ence for all booth oc­cu­pants as they will hear an­nounc­ers and be more aware of what is go­ing on at the race track. A new speaker was also added in the pits to help race teams un­der­stand in­struc­tions com­ing from the pit tower.

A sur­vey has shown that fans want pizza logs, which will re­place con­ven­tional slices.
