“Asphalt is for racing. Concrete is for sidewalks.”
Happy NASCAR Day! America rides on asphalt–and so does NASCAR.
Earlier this month, Dover International Speedway workers had to repair an area in turn 2 of the Dover, Delaware-based race track. Two 3-foot-by-3-foot pieces of concrete had come up and needed to be replaced before last weekend’s race.
In response to a tweet about the repair, Dale Earnhardt Jr. said it best: “Asphalt is for racing. Concrete is for sidewalks.”
We couldn’t agree more, Dale!
Asphalt is for racing. Concrete is for sidewalks.

Dover workers repaired area in Turn 2 where two approximate 3″-by-3″ pieces of concrete came up. They cut it out a bit larger and replaced it. Not unusual track maintenance for a race weekend. pic.twitter.com/EkbTZyqc0S
