New road improvements completed in time for the US 131 Motorsports Park IHRA Northern Nationals presented by Aeromotive

Friday, 31 July 2015

Fans and competitors for the upcoming IHRA Northern Nationals Nitro Jam presented by Aeromotive will be in for a treat before they even see the first race car thunder down the quarter mile. The two mile stretch of road known as 12th Street that connects the state of the art racing grounds to M-222 and US 131 highways has undergone major paving improvements.

This upgraded stretch of road will greatly boost the traffic flow to and from US 131 Motorsports Park and the International Hot Rod Association is thrilled that its fan base will be the first benefactor. Scott Gardner, President of the International Hot Rod Association comments, “US 131 Motorsports Park is a tremendous race track and to see the township and road commission support the infrastructure connecting this facility to the highways is a breath of fresh air.”

“To say this has been a long, bumpy road, no pun intended, to see this much-needed project complete is an understatement,” stated Jason Peterson, General Manager of US 131 Motorsports Park.  “We are pleased that this project is finished and it was a job well done by the contractors.  With the amount of traffic that comes into US 131 Motorsports Park of patrons, not just our surrounding area(s), but from all over the United States and internationally, this new road is a blessing.”

Track management began working in conjunction with the Martin Township and Watson Township officials to petition the Allegan County Road Commission in late 2014 to begin the reconstruction and upgrade on 12th Street. The road project is totally completed and ready for the upcoming IHRA Northern Nationals Nitro Jam on August 7-8, 2015.
