The $178 million renovation of ISM Raceway has claimed its latest victim.
Over the weekend, the project that began in February of last year toppled the scoring pylon that stood in the desolate remains of the track’s infield.
The pylon’s removal follows the destruction of the old media center a couple of weeks ago and the tearing down of the Petty grandstands on the frontstretch.
The project, which will see the start-finish line moved to the dog leg on what was the backstretch, is set to be complete by the NASCAR playoff weekend in November.
You can watch the demolition of the scoring pylon below in a video accompanied by the “Returns a King” track from the score for the film 300.
