CONCORD, N.C., Jan. 31, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- GreenFields USA is proud to announce that its construction partner, FIELDS, has completed an installation of its premium woven turf product, IRONTURFTM, at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
The new turf covers close to 90,000 square feet on the frontstretch of the speedway's infield, at the exit of Oval Turn 4 as a part of Charlotte Motor Speedway's ROVAL™ course. The turf slows down cars exiting the course in a more efficient way than grass, improving safety for drivers.
IRONTURF turf is constructed using patented woven technology and was specifically engineered to hold up to even the toughest impacts.
FIELDS, renowned builder specializing in high-quality athletic fields and parks, consulted with Charlotte Motor Speedway to find the right turf option for their needs before recommending IRONTURF.
"We see ourselves as a true partner for our clients, helping them achieve their goals in an innovative and forward-thinking way," said Brian Storm, President & CEO of Sports Fields Inc., FIELDS' parent company. "Replacing all of the natural grass with IRONTURF will improve the safety for drivers and require less maintenance for the Speedway."
"Charlotte Motor Speedway is a legendary home for motorsports and we're proud to be a part of the complex," said Avery Gallaher, Director of Operations for GreenFields. "IRONTURF was created to hold up under intense conditions, so we know it'll look great for years to come. Big thanks to FIELDS for all their hard work on the installation."
