Laticrete Supercap has partnered with Texas Motor Speedway to install new high-tech floors in the speedway’s two garage areas and tech bays.
Laticrete Supercap is now the “Official Garage Flooring System of Texas Motor Speedway.” The new race-car garage floors will debut Nov. 4 through 6 at the AAA Texas 500 NASCAR tripleheader weekend.
The new floors, a first in NASCAR, cover 22,000 square-feet and house 48 individual service bays plus the Technical Service Inspection Station where every team sends their race-car for an intensive inspection before racing. The Laticrete System includes products designed specifically for commercial garages, warehouses and airplane hangars where performance is a factor because of elements like hot tires, hazardous fluids and the regular use of heavy equipment within the area.
“We are thrilled to have Laticrete install and finish our race-car garages and tech bays," said Mat Stolley, vice president of operations of Texas Motor Speedway. “The professional race teams appreciate a first-class facility and our fans can benefit from our track experience to upgrade their garage and high tech service space.”
Douglas Metchick, president of Laticrete Supercap, said, “Texas Motor Speedway is all about excellence and high performance. This partnership is an opportunity for us to display those same attributes in real world conditions. The demand for flat, moisture-free, finished concrete slab that has excellent chemical resistance, high traction non-slip properties that includes decorative coatings with unparalleled colors and textures has increased dramatically. Airplanes, motorcycles, boats, and performance and vintage cars are investments where owners are opting for professional space to house, protect, display and service their sports and hobby interests.”
