The renovation process at Gresham Motorsports Park got underway in earnest Tuesday with groundbreaking on the site of the former Peach State Speedway.
“We got the permits completed to do the dirt work and we’re off and rolling,” said GMP General Manager Dan Elliott. “We’ve broken ground and we’ve begun the excavation for the new entrances, the grandstand and the lowering of the infield. It’s a big day around here.”
When completed this fall, Gresham Motorsports Park will feature a totally refurbished asphalt racing surface, fencing and retaining walls for the half-mile oval.
Crews had already torn out the 40-year-old concrete grandstands by Tuesday afternoon after work began on the renovation of Gresham Motorsports Park, formerly Peach State Speedway, in Jefferson.
