Evergreen Speedway's historic 3/8-mile race track has been resurfaced for the first time in decades. The project is part of owners Doug and Traci Hobbs' plan to revive the facility.

"Since we took over the track in March of 2011, we’ve had a series of one-year, three-year and five-year projects. The 3/8 track has been on that list from the beginning. To accomplish a complete restoration project of the entire track has taken a lot of time, money and effort to do a top-notch job,” Doug Hobbs said.

The 3/8-mile track is one of the seven at the Evergreen Speedway, the only NASCAR facility in Washington.

“Tourism is vital to our cities and Snohomish County, of which Evergreen Speedway plays a major role. Special thanks to the Snohomish County Tourism Promotion Area who helped in part with support funds for this very expensive project,” Hobbs said.

One of the biggest changes for drivers will be the progressive banking on the 3/8-mile track. The banking is now evenly progressive with the increase from 10 degrees to 12 degrees in the middle of the turns.

Drivers will get their first view of the track this upcoming weekend as Evergreen Drift will have an open event Saturday. There will be an open Super Late Model tire and test session Saturday Night. On Sunday, an autocross event will take to the new surface.
