From NASCAR to Daytona and Formula One to Indy, racing continues to grow in popularity around the world. During any race, fans want to focus on the drivers of the cars, trucks or motorcycles — not on issues with the track surface failing to function properly. While most racing enthusiasts may not think much about the track surface during a race, in reality, the asphalt track remains one of the most important aspects of any racing event. Imagine heading into a tight turn at 180 mph and hitting a raised crack in the asphalt surface, or losing contact with the road coming off a banked turn due to an uneven or slippery surface. A solidly constructed track surface should help drivers excel, not impede them or cause dangerous accidents. Rieth-Riley Construction Company brings nearly a century of asphalt and concrete paving experience to track construction, combining specialized skills and knowledge with state-of-the-art technology to deliver the exacting specifications needed to ensure driver safety. Whether you need a basic flat circular track oval or a complex multi-layered banked oval, our track construction contractors can handle all aspects of your project from start to finish — delivering the results you need on time and on budget. Our expert pavers have worked extensively with asphalt base and flexbase layers, binder and wearing layers, subgrade preparation and asphalt pavement for side roads, parking lots, pit lanes and service roads inside the track. Track construction presents countless challenges that must be addressed throughout the construction process. The shear stress placed on the asphalt-racing surface makes the specifications for paving considerably more stringent than those for a high-traffic highway or interstate interchange. Track usage places extremely tight gradation requirements on the aggregate materials being used, as well as high-performance requirements for liquid asphalt, relating directly to the temperature and consistency.
